Kirgan, Braughton join softball league

Erica Kirgan will begin playing in the Iowa Women's Softball League next summer, but she's already made a big impact on the program.

Erica, a graphic design major at Upper Iowa University, created the new IWSL logo that we've been using since September and will continue to feature in years to come.

"Erica designed a terrific logo that gives our league a distinctive look," said league president Jim Ecker. "She's obviously a very talented graphic artist and an equally talented athlete."

Erica set a career record at Upper Iowa University with 27 home runs and finished with 113 RBIs. She helped the Peacocks reach the NCAA  Division II playoffs in 2016 and win the Northern Star Conference title that year as a corner infielder and catcher.

Erica graduated from Upper Iowa in 2016 and now works as a graphic artist at Rock Communications in Newton.

Erica will serve as a player/coach in the Iowa Women's Softball League next summer and is actively helping us form the new Central Division that will play in Indianola and Ames.
