SUGAR GROVE — Erica Gualandi’s commitment to Waubonsee Community College was a decision she knew would shape not only her college career, but also the foundation for her next 40 years.

Gualandi is a right-handed pitcher and infielder and a 2013 graduate of Morris Community High School.

Gaualandi has demonstrated the true meaning of “student-athlete” by keeping up with her grades. She plans to pursue a degree at the community college 

 Gualandi, a two-year varsity starter and team captain, was named to first-team All-Conference in the Northern Illinois Big 12 East and All-Area by the Morris Daily Herald. She was named the Morris team MVP this past season. Gualandi brought eight years of competitive club softball with the Stone City Sharksto her team.

Gualandi’s self-motivation and trust in the recruiting process has rewarded her with the opportunity to play softball as a WCC Chief and earn a meaningful degree that will help her succeed in the future.

According to Gualandi’s NCSA recruiting profile, she will study either criminal justice or computer science.

Gualandi’s determination to play at the collegiate level led to her decision to join NCSA Athletic Recruiting, an exclusive recruiting network that provides student athletes with the opportunity and technology to be proactive in their recruiting process. Not only did Erica have the tools she needed for the recruiting process, NCSA also educated her on the steps she needed to take to achieve her goal.
