FAIRBURY – Sara Huss has made a noticeable impact in every sport she’s played at Fairbury.
After high school, she’ll continue as a multi-sport athlete.
Huss announced on Tuesday that she is verbally committed to play volleyball and run track at Concordia University in Seward. She made the announcement via Twitter.
Huss, who just finished her junior year, led the Jeffs in volleyball with 264 kills and 64 blocks in 2018. The effort was enough to earn her first-team all-Southern Nebraska Conference honors.
Huss helped Fairbury to a 19-13 record in volleyball – the school’s best record in the sports since 2007.
Under first-year head coach Lyle Thompson, Huss led her team on the basketball court with 12.4 points and 11 rebounds per contest, along with 2.4 steals and 1.9 blocks.
Huss had the fourth most rebounds and third most blocks per game among all girls basketball players in Class C1.
In track and field, Huss had perhaps the best season of her career thus far in 2019, qualifying for the state meet in the 400 meter dash, 1600 meter relay, 200 meter dash and discus throw.
Huss set a PR in discus (139′ 6″) and in the 400 (1:00.45) at the Syracuse Invitational on Apr. 11.
The state-qualifying 1600 meter relay team that included Huss, Mikewna Lierman, Mikasa Lierman and Cora DeBoer, ran their personal best time at Burke Stadium in May (4:14.66). That time was good for 11th overall.
We’ll update this story with quotes from Huss as soon we get the chance.
