Speaking at the Rotary Club of Austintown's recent meeting was Youngstown State University assistant basketball coach Michael Wernicki. He related that the YSU team is playing very well this season.
Originally from Erie, he has spent the last eight years with the YSU team. He stated that if you're not a YSU grad, there are many things people don't know or realize about YSU, in that it is a gem. Visitors are amazed that the campus is so unexpectedly nice. Wernicki said he came to the university with a different perspective and realized the many wonderful features of YSU.
He said the team proudly boasts about their 3.0-plus GPA grades. He said team members also participate in community service to give back to the community that supports them.
