Boys Varsity Volleyball · Spring Sports Senior Spotlight: Luke Susud


The COVID-19 pandemic has had great impact throughout the world in the last six months.  Locally, in addition to the obvious health affects that this virus has caused for so many people that have either gotten sick and some have died, the stay at home orders have had significant affects on everyone.  One of these things is the loss of the Spring Sports season.  This has impacted so many, from professional sports, the collegiate level, high school and middle schools, all the way down to the recreational level.  While so many have been affected, it is especially disappointing for the Class of 2020 who have lost their final HS season to compete for their school, enjoy their sport with their friends, and have the opportunity to impact others and grow themselves.  Because the Spring Sports seniors will not have the opportunity to be honored at a Senior Night for their respective sport this season, the Athletic Department will honor one senior from a Spring Covenant athletic team each day to honor them for their time as a CCHS athlete.

Today’s Senior Spotlight is Luke Susud.  Luke has been part of the Boys Volleyball program for four years.  Here’s Luke’s senior biography:

Parents: Kent & Michelle Susud

Career Volleyball Highlight(s): Nearly beating the number one team in the state.

Favorite Sports Memory: Spending time hanging out with the team before games.

Other Activities: Tennis, DECA, Student Council, Men’s Prayer Club

Favorite Class: Advanced Fitness and Conditioning

Future Aspirations: Undecided, study business management

Favorite Bible Verse/Quote: Proverbs 3:5-6 –“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” (ESV)

Final Word: I want to thank both of my parents for always being supportive of whatever I chose to do, as well as my grandparents for showing up to almost every game throughout the 4 years. I would also like to thank all my coaches for pushing me to be the best player I can be, as well as all my teammates who reminded me to work hard but also have fun.
