Hunter, 23, completed her fifth year of eligibility and final season at Manitoba with her first conference selection.
The 5’9” left side hitter had an impressive last season with the Bisons as she finished second in Canada West kills at 3.43 per game (75 games/257 kills), third in conference points at 4.21 per game (75 games/315.5 points) and tied for 16th in Canada West blocks at 0.87 (75 games/65 total blocks).

Bison women’s volleyball head coach Ken Bentley commented, “Kristi had a great Bison career and I am pleased that she was rewarded with this conference honour. She has been one of the most dynamic athletes to coach and has been a consummate student-athlete by being a great representative of University of Manitoba throughout her years.”
