Gophers volleyball adds graduate transfer Hunter Atherton

PUBLISHED: May 15, 2020 at 1:03 p.m. | UPDATED: May 15, 2020 at 1:04 p.m.

Minnesota volleyball has added Hunter Atherton, a graduate transfer was player her first four years at North Carolina and Nebraska.

“We’re extremely excited to add Hunter to our 2020 roster,” head coach Hugh McCutcheon said in a statement. “She gives us more depth at the setting position and brings some great playing experience as well. We are excited that she chose to continue her education at the University of Minnesota and look forward to having her join our team this year.”

Atherton, a 5-foot-10-inch setter, played for North Carolina during the 2019 and 2018 seasons. While at UNC, she saw action in 49 matches and 176 sets as she established 1,390 assists and 321 digs. Atherton was at Nebraska for two seasons, where she redshirted in 2016 and played in 20 matches during the 2017 season (137 assists, 13 aces and 46 digs).

The Gophers went 27-6 overall, 17-3 in the Big Ten, and advanced to the Final Four last season, where they lost to Stanford in straight sets.

“I chose the University of Minnesota because of the people, the program’s history, and the opportunity to continue my academic career at such a reputable university,” Atherton said. “When meeting the staff, I was blown away by their dedication and desire to be a successful team and to help their athletes succeed individually along the way.”

I wondered if this was men's volleyball for a minute as I'm not used to ladies with the name Hunter. She must be very good for the Gophers to take her.
