YOUNGSTOWN, OH – Head coach Mike Kernan and the Ursuline Lady Irish are back to work and ready to make some noise this season! Coach Kernan will lean heavily on his upperclassmen this season for leadership and dominant play! The Lady Irish are going to be led by a trio of college commits, Maris Barbato (Toledo), Emily Holland (Ohio Dominican), and Julia Nutter (Slippery Rock), will accompany a solid junior class that will look to teach the Ursuline way to the newcomers and younger players in the program.

YSN’s own, Billy McCartney and Quinn Puskar, had the opportunity to catch up with Coach Kernan to get an idea of what his expectations and goals are for this upcoming season, how COVID effected the Ursuline program throughout the course of last year and coming into this season, as well as, who we should keep an eye on from the team that could be making a big splash this year on the diamond!
