(KMAland) -- The KMA Sports Hall of Fame made another announcement on Monday’s Upon Further Review.
Stanton’s Kadie Subbert was a dominant trend-setting standout for the Viqueens in multiple sports, but she arguably made her biggest impact on the volleyball court.
“We had great coaches,” Subbert told KMA Sports. “I was lucky enough to have Coach (Gary) Stephens and my father Bruce Subbert for my first two years, and then Coach J Browning and Jody Druivenga in my last two years. I just had a lot of good coaching.”
Subbert, who graduated from Stanton in 2011, helped the Viqueens to their first state volleyball tournament in school history in her senior year.
“That was some of the best days of my high school,” she said. “I remember we played Grandview Park Baptist that first game. We won and were freaking out. We played Janesville (in the semifinals) on my birthday. So, I got to celebrate my birthday at the state tournament. I’ll never forget those memories.”
Subbert was an instant impact for Stanton as a freshman, as she averaged 3.75 kills per set while hitting .331. Over the next three years, she would average 5.63, 4.16 and 3.54 kills per set while hitting .423, .488 and .444 efficiency. In total, the second girl of the Subbert triumvirate finished 1,116 kills for her career.
Subbert was also a standout player in basketball, track and softball and says all the other sports helped her success.
“Every sport really helped with being successful,” Subbert said. “Being with the same teammates and the team chemistry really helped, too.”
Subbert, who lives in Omaha now, would go on to a successful volleyball career at Grand View University in Des Moines.
Subbert joins Red Oak’s Kara Paul and former Red Oak and Harlan coach Angie Spangenberg in the volleyball wing of the KMA Sports Hall of Fame. She will be inducted at a later date to be determined.
