Under head coach, Katie McCulley, the Lutheran High Crusader volleyball teams have always
had a winning season. 2017 was no different. The Lady Crusader's finished 26-12 and in the Elite 8 in the IHSA State Series. Katie looks for the returning players to guide this years team in 2018. Katie and her assistants, Coach Hennig and Coach Wiski, have been coaching together for 12 years. Together, they bring consistency to the sport that they love.
And, more importantly than the physical skills that are taught, Katie and her coaches focus on
making each of their players a better person. Many of the lessons learned on the court can be
applied to our daily lives - hard work, perseverance, dedication, loyalty, pushing through the
pain, rejoicing in a win and learning from a loss.
For eleven years, each and every practice and game for LuHi volleyball has ended with the players
and coaches holding hands and saying a prayer of thanks. Thanks are given for being able to
play the game that we love. Thanks are given for those around us - our teammates, our family,
our friends. It is always our prayer to play for God's glory and to be an example of His love.
LuHi volleyball is more than just a win/loss record. LuHi volleyball is more than just a sport. It's
a foundation to becoming a better player and a better person.
