Lucas earns honor

Western Kentucky University volleyball’s Jessica Lucas was named Conference USA Setter of the Week on Monday.

The honor marks the first of the sort during the Seymour native’s senior campaign and the 13th of her career with the Hilltoppers.

The Toppers are coming off of a weekend in Louisville in which they participated in the Cardinal Classic along with Illinois, Kent State and the host Cardinals.

WKU also played Tennessee State on Aug. 29 in the 2017 Diddle Arena opener.

Lucas is averaging 10.54 assists through four matches and is in fifth place on the program’s all-time assists list with 4,259.

In addition to helping lead the offense, Lucas chipped in 19 kills against just five attack errors for a .318 hitting clip herself.

The senior also chipped in 22 digs, including 10 at Louisville for her second double-double outing of the year (35A, 10D). Behind the service line, Lucas tallied a pair of aces while adding five block assists at the net.

The recognition from the conference office marks the first weekly award collected by Hilltoppers player in 2017 after Western Kentucky collected 12 total accolades last season.
