STAFF DETAILS

Sixteen years after throwing the only perfect game in Drew University softball history, Erica Mehalick returns to The Forest as the program’s sixth head coach.

Mehalick leads the Rangers into their 28th season following a nine-year stint as the head coach at Stevens Institute of Technology, where she transitioned the Ducks from a club to an NCAA varsity program on the way to five Empire 8 postseason appearances and 157 victories. She was named the Empire 8 Coach of the Year in 2014 as a result of a 30-13 campaign.

Mehalick made history on March 28, 2001 by throwing a five-inning perfect game, retiring all 15 batters in order in a 9-0 victory over Delaware Valley in Madison. Including that gem, she fired the first two no-hitters in program history with another no-no coming on March 23, 2002, albeit an ultra-rare no-hitter loss, 1-0, at home against Lycoming. Mehalick ranks second all-time at Drew with 39 career wins, first in innings pitched with just shy of 500, second in career shutouts (8), and third in career ERA (2.26) and strikeouts (234).

Her degree in economics led to a job in the reinsurance industry for six years. In 2006, she spent her time out of the office coaching club softball teams, including the squad at Stevens, which led to her appointment as the program’s first varsity coach in 2010. She completed a masters in sports administration at Fairleigh Dickinson in 2014.

Mehalick was selected twice as a CoSIDA Academic All-District winner, and carried that focus on academics to her coaching career. In 2015, her Stevens squad earned the seventh highest GPA for softball teams in Division III, and in 2017, the program had its first CoSIDA Academic All-District selection and claimed the NJAIAW Team Academic Award for spring sports.

Under Mehalick’s guidance, a total of 29 student-athletes have received Empire 8 All-Conference honors, including the conference Rookie and Pitcher of the Year in 2014. Mehalick has also coached six ECAC All-Stars and nine NFCA All-Region performers.
