The Romance Chapter generally recognizes athletes who have hit the 1000 point plateau or earned all-state in their sport. Nicole Varano has accomplished the first and has earned the second- twice! Nicole surpassed the 1000 mark on the basketball court last year and has since also surpassed the 1700 point milestone on the way to becoming MCA girls second leading scorer behind only Maria Fantanarosa. Varano has distinguished herself on the hardwood being recognized and named to the Pennsylvania 3rd team all-state in 2017. Nicole has helped her team to 2 District IV Championships in 2016 and 2017. She has proven to be an all-around player by placing herself as the 2nd leading foul shooter in history, the career leader in steals with over 450 and is in the top 5 in rebounding with over 950. She was also named the News-Item and Sunbury Daily Item player of the year in 2017.
On the soccer field, Nicole recently became the girls’ all-time leading scorer with 111 goals during her four-year career, even though she spent part of one season in goal. She was the three-year captain and PHAC 1st Team All-Star all four years. She was the News-Item Player of the Year in 2016 and 2017 and was named to the Pennsylvania All State Soccer Team in 2017. She is the first and only female ever at MCA to be named all-state in two sports.
Varano is also an excellent track athlete at MCA and now has 5 District IV medals to her credit. Her District IV second place finishes in the 110 Meter Hurdles and 300 Meter Hurdles qualified her for the PIAA State Meet at Shippensburg as a junior. We look forward to this spring’s track and field season with her senior season on the horizon.
