|Title:||Class of 1991|
Denise Desorcy Collins, your talent, drive and determination
have distinguished you as one of the most versatile athletes to
ever wear a Worcester State uniform.
You earned 11 varsity letters while playing volleyball, basketball and softball for the Lancers. Your leadership was evident as you were elected a co-captain of all three teams.
You were the recipient of the Lancer A ward for outstanding contribution to WSC athletics in 1979. You were a member of the 1979 team that won the Massachusetts State College championships in softball and basketball and the MAlAW Division II softball title. The team also won the MAlAW Division II title in basketball in 1976. You were named a MASCAC All Star in softball in 1979. You scored 31 points in a basketball game which is currently tied for third place on the all time single game scoring list. You scored 880 points in basketball and had an outstanding .404 career batting average in softball. You were honored for your undergraduate achievements by selection to the Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities. You graduated Cum Laude and were a Dean's List student for three straight years.
You were an assistant basketball coach for two years when the Lancers won the National title in 1980 and finished 3rd in the nation in 1981. You still coach youth programs in Auburn in basketball and soccer and are a substitute physical education teacher.
Denise Desorcy Collins, it is with great pride that we induct you into the Worcester State College Athletic Hall of Fame.
