The spike queen of the prairie needs your help.

Coupeville grad Emma Smith, who’s off being brilliant in the big city these days, is on the final leg of her journey as a member of the club volleyball program at the University of Washington.

Joli’s niece, and Steve’s granddaughter, practices three times a week with her Husky teammates and it shows on the floor.

Smith and her squad recently placed 3rd at a 24-team tourney, and now the U-Dub spikers are prepping for a trip to nationals, which will be held in Kansas City in April.

To get there, the Huskies need some financial help, and are conducting multiple fundraisers.

Smith and Co. have set up a crowdfunding page, where fans can help out with money to help cover the cost of flights, hotels, and tourney registration fees.

The former Wolf ace, a four-year varsity vet who joined up with fellow captain Ashley Menges to spark CHS on a state tourney run in 2017, played at nationals in Phoenix last season.
