This season, Huntey has compiled a team fourth-best and career single-season high 204 kills and is averaging 2.00 kills per set while registering a .127 attack percentage for the 18-9 Ferris State team.

She also has produced a career season-high 25 service aces, 27 total blocks, and 26 block assists as a starter in all 27 FSU matches to date.

She also has currently accumulated 16 double-figure dig match performances this season. Huntey earned all-tournament team laurels at the St. Cloud State Tournament (9/4-5) as she helped the Bulldogs tally a 3-1 tourney mark.
For her career, Huntey has presently generated 322 kills to go with a 1.50 kills per set average in 56 matches. She has chalked up 64 assists, 47 service aces, 571 digs, 60 total blocks, four block solos, and 60 total blocks.
