FORRESTON, Ill. (WIFR) - Making your college commitment official is one of the best days a high school athlete can have. You know where you’re going and get to celebrate with friends and family. It was a big day in forreston.

Erdmann leaves Forreston with the school record for career digs and passing rating. She also holds the record for most digs in a match and season. Erdmann was first team all-conference three times.

Erdmann says she knew right away East Lansing was her next destination.

Erdmann believes her hard work and attitude will show that anything is possible.

“I love coming from a small school. To go to that big of a level, just to inspire others that they can do the exact same as well. You don’t need to be going to a big school to achieve big things. So, hopefully that inspires others.”
