Background:

Grace University (2015, 2016): Kara ranked second on the Grace team as a freshman in 2015, with 330 kills in 1144 attack attempts (2.58 per set) and 105 set assists and 20 service aces; fourth with 56 total blocks; fifth with 53 assisted blocks, and sixth with 221 digs in 128 sets in 35 matches.  She also posted a .947 service receive percentage (382-of-409) and committed 33 service errors in 407 service attempts (.919).  She ranks seventh in single-season attack attempts and 18th in single-season kills in Grace history.  Peters and Taylor Thompson were the only Royals to play in every set throughout the season. Peters totaled 10 or more kills in 13 matches in 2015, with a season-high 18 kills in a five-set home win over Avila University (Mo.), Sept. 18, and had 17 kills in a win at Bethel College (Kan.), Oct.30.  She also set 25 assists in a five-set win over Central Christian (Kan.), Aug. 29, served a season-high four aces in a five-set win over William Penn (Iowa), Set. 11, and totaled a season-high 15 digs against Johnson and Wales (Colo.), Oct. 2. 

In the 2016 season Kara played mostly outside hitter, and a little bit of right side as well. She ended the season with 226 kills (attacking percentage was 12.20%), 32 assisted blocks, and 97 digs.
