Lincoln’s Hannah Behrens – Athlete Spotlight Presented By American Family Insurance, Scott Ausherman

By Hayden Swope

Hannah Behrens was involved in cheer, volleyball, and basketball at Lincoln High School. With lots of memories with her teams, Behrens favorite just so happens to be in a basketball game against a rival school. 

“There are a ton of memorable moments from these past two seasons but the most memorable moment was during basketball season when we went over to play Rock Hills and we ran a box-in-one,” Behrens said. “I felt that was my best game and I truly felt myself playing for my team and those in the stands. Afterwards the Rock Hills coach came up to me and told me that I had done an amazing job. That meant a lot to me coming from someone who didn’t know me as a player but just got to watch.”

After Lincoln’s successful volleyball season, Behrens was ready to take on basketball season. With this being her senior season, she knew she wanted to make it an unforgettable one. 

“Some goals I focused on during the season were playing big down low,” Behrens said. “I have always been undersized as a post, but I was always out to try and prove that my size didn’t mean I was easy to play against. We ended the season with the tough loss to Rural Vista but that couldn’t be a mark for how our overall season went. I have always been a defensive player but this year I stepped up my game on the offensive side. I did succeed when it came to my goal.”

Behrens plans to head into the medical field in the future, and will begin her education at Fort Hays State. 

“My future plans are to attend Fort Hays State University and start a career in nursing, hoping to one day further my education to med school for a career in the field of OB/GYN,” Behrens said.
