Goessel’s Elizabeth Schmucker – First Bank Kansas Leadership Spotlight

Future senior and current point guard Elizabeth Schmucker is this month’s First Bank Leadership Profile.

As a point guard, you are in command of the floor. For Schmucker, taking on that role was a fun one, even though the season did not end as planned.

“I enjoyed the basketball season very much! Even though some of the outcomes of the games did not go in our favor, we always came ready to play and give it our best shot. What I think I improved the most from last to this year was finding ways to score and getting better passes to my teammates,” said Schmucker. “We were a small group this year and I really felt like that helped me connect better with the incoming freshman and just the team as a whole. I love how supportive and encouraging my teammates are. They always came in ready to work hard everyday and never complained.”

Also a track and volleyball athlete, Schmucker, or “Lizzie” as her friends call her, does find time for activities outside or an opportunity to play with her dogs. She also enjoys photography and drawing.
