Lukasik named 2nd-team all-state


 The awards and accolades continue to come in for Clinton Prairie’s Alyssa Lukasik after finishing her stellar high school volleyball career last month.

Lukasik was named second-team Class 2A all-state by the Indiana High School Volleyball Association on Tuesday, adding to her first-team Hoosier Heartland Conference selection and being named County Player of the Year by the county coaches in the Times for the third year in a row. The senior has verbally committed to play volleyball for Army next year.

“Alyssa is a great athlete,” Clinton Prairie head coach Angie Schilling said after her selection as county player of the year. “She’ll be able to do well in whatever role West Point may need her to fill in the seasons to come. We will definitely miss her presence on the court next year.”

Lukasik led the Gophers (and the county) with 449 kills on the season, with a hitting percentage of .442. She also registered 113 blocks, 224 digs and 49 aces in displaying a well-rounded game.

For her career, Lukasik had 1,265 kills.

The first team was dominated by three schools with Christian Academy of Indiana, Heritage Christian and North Judson each putting three players on the squad. North Judson topped Christian Academy in three sets to win the Class 2A state title, while Christian Academy eliminated Heritage Christian in five sets in the semi-state.

Lukasik led Clinton Prairie to its first sectional title since 2003, eventually falling to Tipton in the first-round of the regional. Tipton’s Cassidy Jean Crawford was also named to the second team.
