AKRON – Sidney Wagner made it official on Monday.
After verbally committing earlier in the year, Wagner officially signed on to continue her basketball and academic careers with Trine University.
Wagner is coming off a tremendous career with head coach Chris Kindig and the Lady Vikings. The senior guard crossed the 1,000-point plateau in Valley’s final game of the season at the Wawasee sectional earlier this month, which was just part of the equation. Wagner led the team in every major offensive and defensive category, which had her pile up averages of 19.6 points, 7.7 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 4.5 steals per night.
Wagner recorded seven double-doubles this past season, but had some eye-popping numbers among her work that included at least one rebound, assist and steal in every game. She had nine steals in three different games, and with another steal in the win over Peru, would have had her second career triple double, which she picked up as a junior in the rivalry game against Rochester.
Also a very accomplished motocross rider, Wagner is also a standout student leader and is active in several school activities.
Trine is coached by Andy Rang, who is currently in his third season as head coach of the Thunder and ninth season on the Trine coaching staff. The team is off to a 9-1 start to its season through the weekend.
