Seymour native breaks record

Western Kentucky University Volleyball’s Jessica Lucas was named Conference USA’s Setter of the Week  following the Lady Toppers’ pair of weekend sweeps on the road.

Lucas, a Seymour native, has now earned six weekly honors this season and a Conference USA record 18 during her career.

During Lucas’ sophomore campaign, she collected three weekly honors after earning a pair her freshman season.

With 18 C-USA honors, Lucas surpassed Tulsa’s Tyler Henderson who owned 17 Offensive Player of the Week recognitions from 2009-12.

The Lady Toppers now sit at 27-2 overall on the year and sport a 13-0 mark in Conference USA action.
