SPX's Victoria Hunter
WITH HER SHADES FIRMLY IN PLACE AND HER BRAIDS ON POINT, ST. PIUS X’S VICTORIA HUNTER HAS SOME SERIOUS SWAG... AND CONFIDENCE.
She is the driving force behind the Panthers as they battle for supremacy in the arduous TAPPSD1-District 4. The 5-foot-10 shortstop is the undisputed leader of the orange and black. And she’s of the most feared hitters in the country.
“I want to be the best that’s ever walked through the door [of SPX],” said Hunter. “I want to lead this team somewhere that we’ve never been before, to make a lasting impression for future players.”
Hunter’s performance at SPX has received widespread acclaim, making her a hot commodity in the world of college softball. Hence, her recent signing with the University of Texas, which she will join at the conclusion of this school year.
“I was really drawn to UT because of the coaches, the education, and the campus is beautiful,” she said. “Honestly, it just felt like home to me. I intend to be an All-American when I start playing there.”
TAPPS softball has a surplus of top-tier players. However, Hunter feels she possesses an attribute that makes her stand out.
“Honestly at this level, everybody can throw, everybody can pitch, and everybody can catch,” Hunter said. “But, not everybody can think critically. So, I think a big part of my development was figuring out how to improve my mental aspect of the game.”
Anticipate Hunter and the SPX Panthers to make some noise on the diamond before she turns in her St. Pius’ orange for the burnt orange of the Texas Longhorns
St. Pius X Panthers 2022: 45-25 (Regional)
Coach: Rodney Smith
St. Pius X has the chance to make some noise in the swan song of Victoria Hunter’s high school career. The University of Texas-commit is looking to leave her lasting legacy at SPX. Last season Hunter was first-team, all-district and first-team, all-state last season and is one of seven starters returning for Rodney Smith in the dugout. Other key returners include Brooke Landry (Southern Nazarene University), Sophia Erazo, Julie Tresco and Abigail Odom. “Overall, we played well as a team but encountered costly errors. Our primary goal is eliminating errors and improving offensively,” Smith said. The Panthers’ motto for 2023 is “Hard Work Pays Off”.
