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)

>> The sopho­more is pitch­ing in relief for the Delaware Val­ley base­ball team. The 6-foot3, 215-pound right-han­der has worked in three games and has picked up a save. That came in a 6-5 vic­tory over Geneva on March 6 in Fort Pierce, Fla. He pitched

1.2 in­nings and gave up two hits and an un­earned run. In 4.2 in­nings, Mease has given up three hits, no earned runs, hasn’t walked a bat­ter and has two strike­outs. He pitched in five games in relief as a fresh­man. MATTHEW KER­BER (TULPE­HOCKEN) >> The speedy out­fielder is hitting .314 (11-for-35) with two dou­bles, five RBIs and 11 runs scored for the Steven­son base­ball team. He’s also 6-for-7 in stolen bases. Ker­ber had an eight game win­ning streak to start the sea­son in­clud­ing 3-for-4 with a run and an RBI in a 13-5 loss to Frost­burg State on March 6 in Steven­son, Md. The streak came to an end in a 23-8 home vic­tory over Get­tys­burg on March 8. He went 0-for-4 as the Spar­tans lifted their record to 4-5 in the early go­ing. KARA KLEE (HAM­BURG) >> The se­nior has started all 15 games for the 3-12 Mas­sachusetts softball team. The 5-foot-9 out­fielder is off to a slow start at bat, hitting .217 (10-for-46) with two dou­bles and three RBIs. Klee hit .276 as a ju­nior and hit .287 with seven home runs and 24 RBIs as a sopho­more. She played in 90 games with 86 starts the past two sea­sons in the out­field and as a des­ig­nated hit­ter. She was a pitcher with the Min­ute­women as a fresh­man and started 14 games and posted a 6-5 record.
