Many athletes from Mundy’s Mill have signed athletic scholarships in other sports except soccer. On May 3, that changed when Kori Hunter became the first soccer player in the school’s history to sign a Letter of Intent.

Next year, the versatile sweeper will attend the University of South Carolina-Salkehatchie.

“It’s a great thing for her to be the first soccer player to receive a scholarship from this school,” Mundy’s Mill soccer coach Julius Omotayo said. “Coach [William Glass] was amazed by her athletic ability.”

In spite of the Lady Tigers’ 3-9 record this past season, Hunter, who also played forward and midfielder, scored nine goals and was selected First Team All Region 4-AAAA.

“I improved at dealing with loss,” Hunter said. “It’s hard because everybody wants to win. But it’s better if you can take a loss and just build on that without giving up on your teammates or on yourself.”

Hunter plans to major in fashion merchandising and could see herself working for a fashion magazine.

“It was an honor to coach Kori these past two years,” Omotayo said. “She always displayed a positive attitude towards her coaches, opponents and teammates. Her presence will be deeply missed.”
