Player quote: I am very excited for this upcoming season with Cherokee and I hope we can bond well as a team and translate that onto the court! We have been working hard in open gyms already and are ready for a successful season this year. As a setter I hope to help welcome new players to the program as well as continue the traditions of Cherokee volleyball. After last season we feel we have a lot to prove and we are working hard to do so. I plan to do as much as I can to achieve this success!

Hi my name is Anna Hunter, I grew up in a household full of college athletes such as volleyball and football. I’ve been playing volleyball since I was 10 years old and my mom (played at University of Delaware), forced me to come to some clinics she was coaching. At the time Volleyball felt like a chore and it became my personal mission to make it an awful experience for both my mom and myself. However as time went on my love for the sport bloomed and my passion of playing on a collegiate level began. As an athlete I am an extremely hard worker, perfectionist, and leader on and off the court. I hold my teammates and myself accountable, to make sure they are the best player they can be on the court and best person off the court. I have a 3.9 un weighted GPA and a 5.6 weighted GPA, and I am involved in SMAC (students movement against cancer), and  Varsity Lacrosse. I am also apart of DECA in which I was a State finalist last year and received a varsity club letter. Not only have I been extremely dedicated in Volleyball, I have also been playing Lacrosse for 9 years, last year my Highschool team won New Jersey State Championships. I am very competitive and have extreme leadership skills that I incorporate into my athletics and academic roles. Because I am so competitive I will always give my full effort on the court, if a ball drops in front of me it will not drop there the next time. I believe being a leader on the court especially as a setter is an extremely important skill, and is something that can rally a whole team together in the biggest of upsets. Overall volleyball is my passion in life and playing in college is a dream I will work to achieve.
