The Northern Light recently caught up with Morgan Hooe, the freshman setter on the Seawolf women’s volleyball team.
Hooe is a hometown product, having grown up here in Anchorage, Alaska. Along with sophomores Sarah Johnson and Katelynn Zanders, she’s one of the three South High School alumni currently on the Seawolves’ roster.
Hooe is majoring in history because of her love for United States history. Outside of volleyball, some of her favorite things include Italian food and country music.
Her most memorable moment as a volleyball player came during her junior year of high school when she was a part of the team that won the 4A State Championship. The South Anchorage Wolverines went undefeated that year and didn’t drop a single set.
The undefeated year surely contributed to Hooe earning a spot with the Seawolves, and she was named Gatorade Player of the Year.
Hooe is getting an opportunity to play next to experienced senior setter Siobhan Johansen. Despite being a first-year player, she’s had an impact on the court, racking up 343 assists on the season.
The volleyball team is back home this weekend. They’ll take on the Alaska Fairbanks Nanooks Saturday night at 7 p.m. at the Wells Fargo Complex.
