BOURBONNAIS, Ill. – Olivet Nazarene University softball coach Ritchie Richardson is pleased to announce the signing of Erica Cebulski, a senior at Lockport Township High School. Cebulski will join the Tigers for the spring 2015 season.
“I am happy to have Erica join our program,” said Richardson. “I really like her abilities and feel she can develop into a fine college pitcher.”
Cebulski joins one of the most successful NAIA softball programs in the country. The Tigers are coming off of a 48-9 season just a year ago, including their ninth trip to the NAIA National Championships. Under Richardson’s tenure, Olivet has won 10 Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference (CCAC) regular season titles and 11 tournament titles.
"I chose ONU for the size, atmosphere, team and great academics," said Cebulski of her decision. "I love that I can mix school, softball and God together because those are three things I couldn't live without."
"Everyone who I have met that has went to school at Olivet has had nothing but good things to say and I know that when I'm there I will say the same."
Cebulski, a 5-11 pitcher, is a member of the Orland Park A’s summer travel team. She is the daughter of David and Patti. While at Olivet, she intends to major in psychology.
