Erika Johnson from Springfield High School is this week’s 1590 WAKR Female Student Athlete of the Week.
Ericka is four-year letter winner in softball for the Spartans. She was also recognized as first team all-PTC in the outfield, as well as an all-state honorable mention.
Erika loves playing for the Lady Spartans because the team is very close and great friends "Whether we are winning or losing, we are always having fun in the dug out,” she says.
Staying focused is one of the more challenging things when it comes to playing softball. Erika makes it a point to stay mentally prepared.
"Sometimes during a seven inning game, you can get tired and lose focus."
Focus is also important in the classroom, where Erika enjoys studying marketing. After high school, Malone University is her next stop, where she plans to study child psychology.
