For senior Anna Hutcheson, volleyball has always had a special place in her heart. Starting in the fourth grade, Hutcheson immediately fell in love with the sport and dedicated a lot of her time to her newfound passion.
After finishing her last season as a Ram, Hutcheson was selected to be a part of the Academic All-State team. To be nominated for the Academic All-State team, a student must meet the following requirements: the coach must be a member of the IHSVCA, the nominee must be a senior, the nominee must be on the varsity roster, the nominee must have a minimum GPA of 3.5, the nominee must have a minimum SAT of 1110 or ACT of 24.
Hutcheson was overwhelmingly excited to receive her nomination.
“I think it is a great honor to be on the Academic All-State team because I work very hard for the grades I have while working hard at volleyball. It took time and determination, but it was worth it,” said Hutcheson.
Hutcheson is unsure of whether or not she will continue her volleyball career into the collegiate level. Her college plans are currently undecided, but Hutcheson looks forward to working hard and continuing to dedicate her time to her studies.
