The Rainbow Communications Northeast Kansas Athlete of the Month is Sabetha High School sophomore Mary Lukert.
Lukert pulled double-duty all season long as a cross country runner and volleyball player. That hasn't stopped either as Saturday Lukert won the 3A cross country individual regional (20:46.26) and also punched her ticket to the state tournament on the volleyball regional championship team. It is a rare feat that many can't do simply because of scheduling conflicts or schools sometimes don't allow multiple sports in the same season. What an incredible accomplishment for Lukert and her team. Sabetha cross country also took second as a team as Silver Lake won the team crown on Saturday at Riley County.
Rainbow Communications would like to congratulate Sabetha and Lukert on the oustanding season so far and wish them best of luck at state. 3A state cross country is Saturday in Wamego while volleyball state. Volleyball quarterfinals take place this Tuesday against Perry Lecompton.
Rainbow Communications is a proud supporter of sports coverage in Northeast Kansas and all of Kansas with Sports in Kansas. Be sure to nominate a Northeast Kansas Athlete of the Month with Sports in Kansas.
