Primarily a breaststroker, Lucky does his club swimming with Sailfish Aquatics and most recently earned six best times at the Speedo Summer East Championships where his highest finish was a 17th-place showing in the 200m breast. He also earned bronze in both the 100 and 200 breast at Cary Sectionals after winning the 200 breast at the 18&U Winter Championships.

His best times include:

  • 100 breast – 54.57

  • 200 IM – 1:48.95
  • 100 fly – 48.80
  • 200 fly – 1:49.44

Also competing for Concord High School, Lucky is a five-time individual North Carolina 3A State Championship finalist. He won the 100 breast and was the runner-up in the 200 IM as a junior while taking first in the former event during his sophomore season.

He has also earned USA Swimming Scholastic All-American honors for his efforts in the pool and in the classroom.
