Olejniczak leaves UNI, joins Iowa softball

Emma Olejniczak has left the University of Northern Iowa softball  program after two years and has joined the Iowa Hawkeyes, UI Coach  Renee Gillispie confirmed Monday.

Olejniczak compiled an 11-17 record in two seasons as a pitcher for  the Panthers. She was 5-8 with a 3.36 ERA as a freshman in 2018 and  was 6-9 with a 6.38 ERA this past season.

"She has been accepted to UIowa and has her classes confirmed,"  Gillispie stated in response to a question from the Metro Sports Report.

Olejniczak graduated from Perry High School in 2017. She went 23-11  with a 1.28 ERA as a senior, with 356 strikeouts in 219 1/3 innings.

Olejniczak will be extending a family tradition of playing sports for  the Hawkeyes. Her father, Jason Olejniczak, was a defensive back at  Iowa from 1990 to 1993. An uncle, Lon Olejniczak, played football and  baseball for the Hawkeyes from 1979 to 1983.
