Warning named Academic All-Patriot
LUCAS WARNING (KUTZTOWN) >> The Lehigh senior competed in the shot put in 10 meets during the indoor season and finished first in eight of them and second in the other two. He was outstanding in the last three meets. Warning captured the title at the Bucknell Tune-up on Feb. 10 with a school record toss of 59 feet, 10½ inches. He took the Patriot League title on Feb. 19 (593½) and the Fastrack Last Chance meet on Feb. 25. However, he missed out on a chance to compete in the NCAA Division I Championship, finishing tied for 42nd on the performance list.
Warning was later named to the Academic All-Patriot League team for the second straight indoor season.
Warning, a chemical engineering major with a 3.49 grade-point average, is coming off a stellar senior indoor season where he upped his school shot put record to 18.25 meters and took home his first Patriot League Championship with a meet record of 18.07m. Previously a 2016 CoSIDA Academic All-District selection, Warning was named Academic All-Patriot League during both the indoor and outdoor seasons in 2016. He is a two-time selection to the USTFCCCA All-Academic Team, a PL Honor Roll member and a Dean’s List Student. HUNTER MEASE (KUTZTOWN)
