Lizzy (Stachon) Delaney

2011 Graduate
Lizzy was a four-year letter winner in girls basketball and finished her high school career as an MVP with a total of five school records. She was the KCCI Player of the Game versus Valley High School and was recognized as a DCHS MVP. She was named CIML All-Conference three times, Elite CIML, all-regional and all-district and earned a CIML All-Conference Academic Award. During her time at DCHS she was also named to three all-state teams and the Gatorade All Star team and was included in the inaugural edition of the Best Players of the AAU. She was also the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union (IGHSAU) five player career leader in blocks.

She was recruited by several Division 1 basketball teams and went on to attend Columbia University due to the academic opportunities afforded there. She began her college basketball career as a starter and finished sixth in the Ivy League for blocked shots. An injury and surgery forced her into medical retirement, cutting her college basketball career short. 

She currently works as a World Wide Operations recruiter at Amazon and is grateful for the lifelong friendships made during her time at DCHS.
