Lucy DeFruscio

Marketing Coordinator

Lucy brings a wealth of sports experience and marketing knowledge to Highland Sports Complex. A Wheeling native, Lucy grew up playing basketball all over the Ohio Valley. Her past teams include St. Michael’s Parish School, Wheeling Park High School for one season before moving to Indiana, and ending her career back in her hometown at what is formerly known as Wheeling Jesuit University. Lucy graduated from WJU in 2014 with a B.A. in Communications. She traded in her uniform for a whistle as she began her coaching career at Wheeling Park as the head JV and varsity assistant coach. While coaching, Lucy graduated in 2017 from Point Park University with a M.A. in Media Communication. Over the last three years, Lucy has been an independent contractor specializing in marketing for government and non-profit agencies in the Wheeling area. 

In her role as Marketing Coordinator, Lucy leads marketing efforts through digital and traditional campaigns, builds business relationships within the Wheeling community, and creates content and manages the social media.

In her free time, Lucy loves to bake – chocolate cake is her favorite. She also enjoys running, playing basketball, and spending time with her family, especially her nephew and niece.
