Hattey Smith
Pierce College
2020
Volleyball

    Hattey is completing one of the greatest athletic careers in the history of Pierce College. As the starting setter for the Raider Volleyball team the past two seasons, she quarterbacked the team through two record-breaking seasons. During this span, the Raiders went undefeated in NWAC West Region league play, going 26-0 (72-10 overall), winning back-to-back West Region league titles. In her freshman season, she led the Raiders to a 3rd Place finish at the Northwest Athletic Conference Championships, and this past season the Raiders took 2nd Place at the conference championship event - the program's highest finish ever.
    Hattey led the NWAC in total assists and assists per set, in both her freshman (1177 and 11.0/set) and sophomore seasons (1219 and 11.29/set), and set school records for assists in a season and assists in a career. Her ability to deliver the ball to the right spot at the right moment helped her teammates earn the highest hitting percentage in the NWAC (.285) this past season.
    Over her two seasons, Hattey was recognized as the Region and Conference player of the week, nine times. At the end of her freshman season, she was named a West Region First Team All-Star. She was truly the class of the West in her sophomore campaign, earning the region's Most Valuable Player award. Hattey earned All-Tournament Team honors at the NWAC Championships, and she capped off her Raider career being selected as a First Team All-American by the American Volleyball Coaches Association - just the second Pierce player to earn this high honor.
    In addition to be a leader and outstanding performer on the court, Hattey also led the way in the classroom. She currently has a 3.76 cumulative grade point average, has been named to the Dean's and President's list in all five quarters at Pierce, and honored by the NWAC with the Academic Excellence Award, recognizing outstanding sophomore student-athletes. Hattey has signed a national letter of intent to continue her education and collegiate volleyball career at Arizona Christian College this coming Fall.
