POTH -- When you are a playmaker for the Poth Pirette volleyball team, people take notice. And after the senior season Kelsee Felux is having, a number of college recruiters took notice of her talent. While schools like St. Mary’s University and Colorado were in the running, it was Texas A&M-Kingsville that won the Kelsee Felux lotto.

The 5-foot, 10-inch middle blocker and outside hitter said her decision became much easier after her visit, and described her coaches and future teammates as “very welcoming.” Kelsee wants to be a psychiatrist one day, and said the psychology program at A&M-Kingsville will help her to attain that goal.

Like her Poth teammates, Kelsee is excited about going off to college, and is most looking forward to being out on her own. She is ready to take greater responsibility for herself, and knows it will be a life-changing experience. Still, she admits she will miss her friends and family a great deal.

Kelsee’s rise to the top of Class 2A volleyball hasn’t been easy, and for her, the turning point in her athletic career came way back in junior high.

“In seventh grade, I was put on a ‘lower team,’ and I knew that wasn’t where I wanted to be,” she said.

From that moment on, Kelsee made it a point to work harder, and set goals for herself to achieve something better. She rose through the program, and now stands as one of the team’s premier hitters at the net.

Through 104 games this season, Kelsee has racked up an impressive 235 kills, second only to Jordan Kotara, the team’s kills leader. Kelsee’s defensive play has also been a huge part of Poth’s success, and her 227 digs are also the second most for the team.

With only two matches remaining this season, it was easy to see that her excitement about signing with Texas A&M-Kingsville was slightly overshadowed by her focus on the playoffs. The senior said she only has one goal left to achieve at Poth this year, and that is to win the state title. Once that task is completed, she can begin to shift her focus to the future.
