Club careerEdit

In 2006–07 Hogewoning helped VV Ter Leede win the double in the last season of the pre-Eredivisie Vrouwen era. She moved to FC Utrecht for the start of the new competition, but missed most of 2007–08 with torn cruciate ligaments.[2]

She signed for German Bundesliga side FCR Duisburg in 2011.[3] In 2012, she joined the newly-formed AFC Ajax women's team, where she remained for almost four years. She retired from football in May 2016 after Ajax's KNVB Women's Cup final defeat by ADO Den Haag.[4]

International careerEdit

On 6 August 2004 Hogewoning debuted for the senior Netherlands women's national football team, playing the first half of a 2–0 defeat to Japan in Zeist.[5]

Hogewoning played in every match as the Netherlands reached the semi-final of UEFA Women's Euro 2009.

In October 2012 she suffered another anterior cruciate ligament injury, which cost her a place in the Dutch squad for UEFA Women's Euro 2013.[6]
