Elizabeth Hunsaker has been selected as the CHS Athlete of the Month by her coach, Adeile Ahmu. This is Elizabeth’s senior year and third year as a varsity player.  This season she is the starting Middle Hitter and also a team captain.

One of her favorite things about playing volleyball is the camaraderie amongst her teammates.  She loves it that the team’s togetherness is reflected by their play. During Elizabeth’s sophomore year at CHS she received an award for being the best defensive player on the team. Elizabeth has also showed talent on the offensive side, recording 19 kills only halfway into the season.
