RCW: A Look Back 3.31

This week, let’s take A Look Back at an artifact in the Kansas Athletics collection. In 1993, Erin Wahaus was awarded the University of Kansas Women’s Outstanding Student-Athlete Award. She played catcher for the Jayhawk softball team and earned multiple accolades in her senior season, including First Team All-Big Eight, First Team All-Region, First Team Academic All-Big Eight and Second-Team Academic All-America. Wahaus finished her senior year (1993) at No. 6 on the single-season RBI list (35) and No. 8 on the single-season batting average list (.359). She helped lead the team to a 31-15-1 record and a No. 12 final national ranking in 1993.
