Crebs earns Curry

Coach of the Year award

One of the best campaigns in his 22 years as

head wrestling coach helped Roger Crebs ’87 earn

the seventh annual Robert Darrow Curry Coach

of the Year award, which was presented at the

Athletics Hall of Fame induction ceremony.

The wrestling team finished 13-3 in dual

meets, the squad’s best record since 2001-02

and finished 21

st

at the NCAA Division III

Championships. The Warriors also finished third

at the Budd Whitehill National Duals, which

helped the team enter the national rankings

where it reached as high as 20

th

in the nation.

Crebs coached sophomore Nolan Barger to a

third-place finish and All-American status at the

NCAA Championships, as Barger became Crebs’

20

th

All-American.

The team was just as successful in the

classroom, as it was honored as one of the

Division III All-Academic Top 30 Teams. He

coached three NWCA Division III Scholar All-

Americans, five Academic All-MAC selections

and a record seven MAC Academic Honor Roll

grapplers.

Null earns slot

in MAC Hall of Fame

As women’s athletics transitioned into the NCAA in

1982, Lycoming College made the national scene thanks

to the efforts of Denise (Zimmerman) Null ’85, who

helped Lycoming to top-40 finishes in the first two NCAA

Division III Women’s Swimming Championships.

Her efforts, as the first female athlete to emerge onto

the national scene at the college level, have helped her

earn induction into the fifth class of the Middle Atlantic

Conference (MAC) Hall of Fame.

“I certainly didn’t expect to be remembered or honored

this way after 30 years,” Null said.

Null won a school-record nine MAC swimming titles

and a remarkable five All-American honors during her four years on the team from 1980-84.

Now 30 years after she left the pool, she still holds the school record in the 200-yard freestyle

(1:58.94) and holds the one of the fastest five times in program history in four other events.

After graduation, Null worked as a chemist for nearly 10 years at Lancaster Laboratories

before joining West Pharmaceuticals as a senior chemist for 13 years. Recently, she returned

to Eurofins Lancaster Laboratories as a principal chemist.

“I still swim for recreation,” Null said. “The mindset I gained from swimming led to many

of my other successes in life and it is something I will always remember in life and

be proud of.”
