King’s Way Athletics has a new softball Coach! Lynsey Sica, who is currently serving on campus as a Middle School math teacher, has agreed to lead our softball program for the 2023 campaign.
Lynsey calls Vancouver home and was a standout softball player at Columbia River High School. As a prep athlete she earned All-League and All-American softball honors and a 1997 state championship. She parlayed her high school accomplishments into a four year NCAA Division 1 career at Texas Tech and the University of Oregon. Lynsey started at third base and shortstop for three seasons while at U of O where she still holds records for games played and total at bats. Lynsey’s collegiate performances earned her All-Pac 10 honorable mention accolades and she was also named to the All NCAA Regional Tournament team in 2003.
Lynsey states that she is “grateful to be a part of King’s Way,” and that she “hopes to give back to our students through a sport that she knows and loves.” Lynsey holds the same core values as King’s Way Athletics and her primary goals are to, “help students grow their softball skills, become better teammates, learn the value of hard work, and through it all grow their relationship with Christ.” The King’s Way community is fortunate to have Lynsey guiding our softball athletes. Go Knights!
The King’s Way softball coaching staff has already doubled in size with the naming of Darci Vick as an assistant softball coach. Darci is familiar with King’s Way as her daughter is a 5th grader here on campus.
Darci has plenty of softball experience to offer our young athletes. After a stellar high school career she signed with Central Washington University to play in the outfield. Most recently, she has been coaching youth softball here in Vancouver. Darci also spends her professional time as a consultant and coach for strategic leadership, team dynamics, and culture. Darci states that she’s, “excited to bring my professional and personal experience to help King’s way build an incredible softball program.” Welcome to the family, Darci!
