During her Jackson career, Hattery was selected three years as an All‐Federal League and All‐Stark County player and as a senior, she received All-Ohio honors.

She wrapped up her career with 28 assists, including 12 as a senior, and over her four years with the program, she helped the Polar Bears win four district titles and four Federal league championships.
