Senior Emily Riha just signed a letter of intent to attend Briar Cliff University to play softball. She will major in nursing. Riha is a softball utility specialist, playing second base, third, shortstop and catcher. Briar Cliff is located in Sioux City, Iowa.
Emily has quite the list of accomplishments at Gross. She is a combined 9 time letter winner in softball, basketball and tennis. Emily has been named academic all-conference in all three of her sports and even achieved academic all-state in tennis. Riha also is on the honor roll at Gross Catholic, as well as being a member of NHS, SALT and the Student Ambassador team.
“Emily is a great athlete and I am thrilled that she is becoming a Charger,” reflected BC Coach Schaper. “Her work ethic and her leadership will be a great addition to our team.”
Emily asserts she is really looking forward to Briar Cliff but will definitely miss Gross Catholic. “Gross Catholic taught me how to be a leader is so many ways.” She loves the family atmosphere at Gross and said she will be returning to visit quite often. “It’s my favorite thing–how everyone here loves each other.”
Congratulations to Emily and her family!
