   Erica Sisson joins the Ball State staff after serving as the volunteer coach for her alma mater UAB last season. In her year on the Blazers staff, Sisson helped guide the team to a 40-19 overall record and the program’s first-ever berth in the NCAA Super Regionals.

   “Erica is an up and coming coach who will bring instant enthusiasm to our program,” Perry said. “Last season, Erica helped UAB reach new heights as the program competed in its first-ever NCAA Super Regional.  Erica has a vast knowledge of the game of softball and knows how to win at the highest level.  I am very happy she chose to join us at Ball State.”

   Part of the 2013 NFCA Mideast Coaching Staff of the Year, Sisson assisted with hitting and infield development, plus served as the catching coach for the Blazers. UAB, which made its fourth consecutive trip to the NCAA Regionals, also captured the program’s first Conference USA Regular Season Championship last season.

   In addition to her brief stint on the UAB staff, Sisson was a coach for the Crusaders 18-U Gold team for two seasons (2009-10), helping the program finish in the top 20 at the 2009 Gold Nationals and in the top 15 at the 2010 Gold Nationals. She helped develop six future NCAA Division I softball players, three future NCAA Division II players and five junior college players over her two seasons with the program. She also served as the head coach of Team Boombah Alabama 16-U in 2012. 

   In her four years on the Blazers’ roster, Sisson played a key role in advancing the team to three consecutive NCAA Tournament berths. Over her career, Sisson recorded 131 starts in 147 appearances with primary roles at catcher or first base. Academically, Sisson was a four-time Conference USA Honor Roll honoree, a Conference USA Academic Medal recipient and a 2008-09 NFCA Academic All-American.
