Sublette’s Emily Lucas is off and running for UMKC’s volleyball team. She had a career high 13 kills for UMKC in a win over Grambling this weekend in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Lucas is a sophomore at UMKC. Her previous career high was 10 kills last year against Holy Cross. Last year, she played in 27 of the Roos’ 31 matches.

At Sublette, Lucas led the Larks to a 35-11 state tournament season her senior year of 2008 and smashed home a school record 638 kills and an SHS record 133 aces while hitting .482. Her 638 kills and 138 aces were the top marks in Kansas that year.

The 6′ tall Lucas also played club volleyball on the U.S.A. National High Performance A3 team in 2008.

Emily was also a standout track and field athlete, as she is a three-time Class 2A high jump champion and also was a member of two state champion 4×100-meter relay teams and she holds the Sublette records in the high jump and 4×100 and 4×400-relays.

Her 1-2 UMKC team plays KU in Lawrence Tuesday.
