Warriner commits to Lycoming College
Wellsboro senior Darci Warriner announced that she will continue her volleyball career in the Fall at Division III Lycoming College on Monday, May 2.
While at Lycoming, Warriner will major in Psychology, while getting teaching certificates in both Elementary Education and Special Education.
“I’m very excited,” Warriner said. “After 9th grade I realized that I wanted to play club volleyball during the winter and after I got on a team sophomore year I really wanted to continue after high school.”
As a junior, Warriner led the team with 335 digs and 243 serves received. As a senior, Warriner led the team in Kill & (25.7) and was second in kills (155), led the team in Serve & (96.2), and was second on the team in digs (257) and serves received (191).
Some of the factors that led Warriner to Lycoming was that it was close to home, a small campus, and how nice her coaches and teammates were.
“Lycoming is really tight together and isn’t spread out or anything and its really welcoming. This April I met some of the teammates and the recruits that I’ll be playing with.”
For head coach Sharon Zuchowski, Warriner is the third Lady Hornet she’s coached that will play on the collegiate level.
“I’m excited for Darci,” said Zuchowski. “She’s definitely ready for the next level, she has put in the time and Lycoming is getting a great athlete to fit into their program. Darci brings a lot to the court. She brings leadership, she tends to bring the girls together when we’re down, and just her athletic ability has helped the team all-around. This is something that Darci has really wanted and now she needs to take advantage of it and savor every moment.”
