Prior to the start of the Feb. 2 K-State women’s basketball game against Kansas, former K-State All-American and current women’s basketball assistant coach Shalee Lehning will be honored by the Kansas State High School Activities Association (KSHSAA) as a member of the Hall of Fame Class of 2013.
The ceremony will take place at the 12-minute mark of the pregame warm-ups during the 2 p.m. Sunflower Showdown game in Bramlage Coliseum.
A three-sport athlete at Sublette High School, Lehning garnered numerous awards and accomplishments including all-league first team recognition in volleyball (4 years); seven gold medals at state track and field, three gold medals in the 100-meter hurdles, two gold medals in the 300-meter hurdles and two gold medals in javelin.
Lehning shattered the state record books in her basketball career, as she is the state’s all-time leading rebounder, assists leader and steals leader. She is fourth in state all-time points.
She helped lead the Larks to back-to-back undefeated seasons and Class 2A state championships in 2004 and 2005 and was named the Miss Kansas andž Gatorade Basketball Player of the Year along with notching numerous all-tournament and all-state selections.
Lehning received Academic All-League recognition in volleyball, basketball and track for four years. She also excelled off the court, as she was class president for four years and was on the “A” Honor Roll four years.
