The Warrior Running coaching staff is excited to announce the signing of Danielle Wilson the women's cross country program.

At Fairless High School, she trains all year around as a 3-sport athlete for cross country, winter track, and spring track. Her events in track include the 4x8 relay, the 1600, and the 3200 meter race.
Danielle is a four-time regional qualifier in cross country as well as a three-time regional qualifier in track & field. She lead the Fairless High School Cross Country Program to their first ever team district championship title, was the individual OHSSA District Champion, and attained an individual state qualification to compete at the OHSSA Ohio State Cross County Championships.

Graduating in the top ten of her class, Danielle aspires to one day become a missionary and while at Nyack, plans to major in Intercultural Studies with a minor in Youth Ministry. She chose Nyack College because it was the type of college she was looking for and she felt at home with the team.
Danielle Wilson is excited to contribute to the Warrior Running Program and achieving many goals with her teammates. She is also excited to grow in her walk with God at Nyack, experience many mission trips, and build lifelong relationships.
Coach Deylii: "Danielle had great chemistry right away with the girls when she came on her visit. Her joyful spirit and competitive attitude is going to balance our team out perfectly. She will strengthen our top group in the areas needed and overall she's the absolute perfect fit for Nyack. I definitely see her doing well here & enjoying her time."
