Nansemond River High School senior soccer standout Indiah Hunter made her college decision official on National Signing Day Wednesday.

Hunter verbally committed to Old Dominion University back in April of last year.

“Words can’t explain how excited I am to officially be a Monarch,” she said. “It is exciting for a number of reasons, but mainly because this marks the next chapter in my life. ODU’s soccer program is moving in a very positive direction, and I am so honored to become a part of that. I feel like I am going to learn a lot from Coach Hind and Coach Barr on the soccer field.”

Since her commitment, she helped lead Nansemond River to a conference championship and the 5A regional tournament. They were one game away from qualifying for the state tournament.

She has also played with her club team as well. She has strived to become a better player and hopes that it shows on the field for Nansemond River again this season.

Her biggest goal for this season is to do as much as she can to help her team be successful. She was an All-Conference player last season and hopes her play allows her to achieve that once again.

Sometimes, college commitments can serve as distractions for athletes who may just be wanting to get by so they can get to their future homes. However, Hunter doesn’t see that as an issue going forward.

“I know what signed up for, and I am embracing the challenge,” Hunter said.

Her family is proud of her accomplishments, and she thanked them for investing so much in her soccer career.
