Former Astoria volleyball coach Angee Hunt was a Hall of Fame inductee last month, as part of Thurston High School’s Class of 2020 athletic Hall of Fame.
As Angee Henderson, Hunt was a standout athlete at Thurston, located in Springfield. She graduated in 1991, and went on to play volleyball at the University of Oregon (1991-94), where she still ranks in the top 10 all-time in block assists.
Hunt later coached volleyball at Cottage Grove and Astoria, where she led the Fishermen to the state title match in 2012.
Hunt joined Thurston graduates Bryan Sorenson (1987), Lisa Beckham-Stedman (1990), Josh Sessums (1995), Travis Harwell (1997), Sarah Barrett Levrets (1998), Josh Heacock (1999) and Sheila Lewellen (coach 1980-present) in Thurston’s Class of 2020 Hall of Fame class.
