YOUNGSTOWN OH- Ursuline softball senior Emma Ericson has slowly been developing her leadership skills. Entering her senior season Emma was ready to lead her Irish to another impressive season. Coming off a year where the Irish came so close to a district championship, everyone was hungry to get back to work.
Emma has seen her confidence grow on the field over the years. She remember a specific game her sophomore year while in the circle coach Kernan came out to talk to her. She told him she needed to stay in and finish the game, she knew she could. That’s exactly what she did. She says that is the moment when her confidence started to grow as a player. She planned to work harder than anyone this season, and lead her team by example. Unfortunately the COVID-19 pandemic has ended the 2020 season. This setback hasn’t stopped Ericson from looking to the future. She plans to attend Youngstown State after graduating from Ursuline. With new found confidence from the softball diamond, she is sure to fantastic things.
