“I would like to thanks my mom and dad for pushing me to be my best and for supporting me in everything I’ve been involved in,” Atzeni said. “They have always been there for me. I would also like to thank my grandparents for making it to all my games. They have been there throughout my high school career.”
Atzeni was a four-year letter winner in volleyball for the Golden Knights while also earning four letters in basketball and three in track and field.
“Hannah has definitely left her mark as a setter at Union,” Union volleyball coach Diane Thorpe said. “Often time, the setter does not get as much recognition as the hitters. However, if you don’t have a good set you don’t have a good hit.”
This past season, Atzeni recorded 427 set assists her senior year and 1,018 in her career. She was voted Player of the Year by her teammates and received the Coaches Award, which is given by her coaches for leadership, aggressiveness, dedication and attitude.
“I’m so proud of Hannah no only because she will get to continue her volleyball career in college but she has so much talent and dedication in the classroom that she will contribute greatly to society,” Thorpe said. “I’m so excited to watch her play and see where her life takes her. I will miss her presence and consistency, but I’m so excited for her to start this new chapter.”
She has severed as the Vice-President of the Volleyball Club and the Vice-President of the Sports Club while also serving as president of the Roundball Club and Vice-President of the Travel Club and is also a member of the National Honor Society.
At Mount Aloysius, Atzeni plans on majoring in Ultrasonography with plans to become an Ultrasound Technician. She would like to specialize in either O.B. or echocardiography.
She is the daughter of Rick and Shelly Atzeni.
