Pioneer Athlete Spotlight on Hannah Annison

Pioneer Athlete Spotlight on Hannah Annison

CONCORD, CA (May 18, 2023) — Known for her kind personality and enthusiastic attitude, student-athlete Annison has participated on Clayton Valley Charter’s varsity stunt team for the past three years.

She has also been a dedicated cheerleader for the CVCHS sideline cheer program for her entire high school career. Annison’s leadership skills earned her Stunt Captain as a junior and senior. She says that her favorite part about being an Ugly Eagle athlete is representing a program that builds athletes with strong character.

Growing up, she participated in a variety of sports such as soccer, basketball, rhythmic gymnastics and synchronized swimming. Annison eventually fell in love with stunt and cheer.

During her time off the mats, Annison has maintained a 4.33 GPA and is an avid member of many clubs at Clayton Valley, including CSF, NHS, Senior Women and Link Crew. She plans to attend the University of California San Diego in the fall, majoring in Cognitive Science with a specialization in Machine Learning and Neural Computation.

Annison has always found the sport of stunt to be an escape from the stress of her everyday life. She is very grateful to her coaches Kate Panos and Nichole Schumann, as well as the rest of her team, for giving her an amazing three years.
