Senior Hailey Hunt signed her Letter of Intent on November 13 to play volleyball at Stephen F. Austin State University. She is graduating early in December and will enroll at SFA in the spring.
Hunt, the 14-5A 2018 District MVP is currently 6th in the Dallas area in kills with 562 kills over 114 sets. She says the team goals are simple, “leave everything on the court and take it one game at a time.”
“Hailey has jumped in and taken on leadership roles, starting six years ago when she joined our volleyball program in middle school,” stated Head Coach Hope Porter. “There will be a big void in our program when she is gone. But before that, we have more work to do.”
