Concordia is one of the smallest schools in Omaha, but it is producing one of city's biggest college prospects.
Junior Megan Wickey is a 6-foot-2 outside hitter with big game and an even bigger list of suitors. Behind her play, the Mustangs are 13-5 and chasing down a chance to get into the Class C-1 state tournament for just the third time.

Q: Omaha Concordia is a fairly new school that hasn't had many chances to get to the state tournament. What does your team need to do to get to Grand Island this year?
A: We need to come together as a team. We have had a good start but we have a lot of freshman and we need to start meshing even more.
Q: What's your role in that meshing process?
A: I'm the captain this year, so I've kind of set out to be the person that takes some people under my wing.
Q: For being at a C-1 school, you've gotten quite a bit of recruiting interest. What's that like at a smaller school?
A: Everybody here is really interested in what's going on with it and people are always asking what's been going on with it.
Q: I know you're just a junior and your list is probably going to grow, but what schools are really looking at you right now?
A: I've had eight offers but I don't really have a top five or anything right now. I just recently, with being a junior, I started getting a lot of letters to the point where its like, 'Wow.'
Q: Do you have a dream school?
A: Not really but there are some letters that are pretty cool to get like Nebraska, UCLA and Penn State. You start to realize ... like, 'Hey this is pretty cool.'
