"it's a pretty big blow, you've seen the season he's had, he's one of our main starters and he's a big part of our backbone on our team, so with him being out, it's a shock", said Brennon Dyer.
It's undoubtedly a big loss for a young team, but with a 4-game homestand beginning on Thursday against Stanford, the team has to quickly focus on the Cardinals.
"Stanford is a very good team, good setting, good passing, good outside hitters, they're good in the middle, they're good, so they're going to be giving us a lot of challenges", said Coach Mike Wilton.
The team's leader in kills last season, Josh Walker, will fill the void left by Hunt's absence, and collectively, the team says they're ready for the challenge, as they enter the second half of the season.
"all we gotta do is go in there with a mindset that we're going to win and just do our part", said Gus Tuaniga.
