OC Alumna Erica Prosser's Jersey Retired

Lehigh University celebrates Erica Prosser's stellar basketball career at special ceremony.

After four years of basketball victories at Oakland Catholic High School, Erica Prosser, '07 continued her streak of success at Lehigh University. There, the freshman point guard began an impressive college career, starting all four years and boasting 1,676 points (3rd of all time), 541 assists, and 277 steals.

On a recent Saturday, the university hosted "Erica Prosser Night" to honor her contributions. Surrounded by her supportive family, Erica watched as her jersey was retired and hung in the rafters. "I think every player dreams of having her jersey in the rafters, and it is such an honor to have a moment like that with my family," Erica reflected afterward. "It was much more emotional than any of us had expected."
