Erin Glasco returns for her second season as an assistant coach for the Salukis.
Glasco, a Johnston City, Ill., native, joined the program after a successful collegiate career at Texas A&M University where she played two seasons as catcher.
In her second season, Glasco will be assisting with infield, hitters, and recruiting with the Salukis.
At Texas A&M, Glasco started at catcher in almost all her games as an Aggie while batting .278 with 88 hits, 21 doubles, six home runs and 58 RBI in two seasons while earning a degree in business management in May 2010.
Glasco also helped Texas A&M to a Women's College World Series national runner-up finish in 2008 and was a Big 12 All-Tournament selection in that same season as they swept both regular season and tournament championships.
Prior to coming to SIU, Glasco played professionally for the USSA Pride of the National Pro Fastpitch and the Dornbirn Sharx in Dornbirn, Austria.
Before Texas A&M, Glasco spent two seasons at Notre Dame where she helped them to the NCAA Tournament in 2006 as a designated player and started in 39 games as catcher during the 2007 season.
Glasco has ties to SIU - her older sister Tara, played at Southern Illinois from 2001-2003.
At Johnston City High School in nearby Johnston City, Ill., Glasco earned All-State and All-Conference honors in each of her seasons (2002-05) while leading her team to four consecutive Black Diamond Conference Championships and two regional titles (2003, 2005). She also holds school records in career batting average and career hits.
