Biography:

Arguably one of the best players to come out of the Fighting Irish program, Emilee Koerner, posted some impressive numbers rightfully earning herself the first player to be named a three-time All-American in Notre Dame softball history. She was a regular contributor for the Irish in just her first season with 53 starts batting .320 with a team-high 12 doubles. Her sophomore campaign was one of her best in the blue and green when she was named a Top 10 finalists for the USA Softball National Collegiate Player of the Year award. Koerner ranked third in the NCAA in batting average to close out the regular season (.479) ultimately placing 16th in the final national statistics at .439 – the average was the highest among all Irish batters with at least 150 at-bats in a given season in the program’s 25-year history, and the third-highest overall clip during a single season at Notre Dame. As a junior, she finished the season as the NCAA leader with 28 doubles and 0.52 doubles per game. She was also ranked second nationally in sacrifice flies (7), third in runs per game (1.20) and 13th in slugging percentage (.825). She led the ACC in doubles and runs scored with a team record 65. Emilee finished her collegiate career tied for this in doubles (79) in NCAA history. She is also the Notre Dame leader in runs scored (196), total bases (471), and slugging percentage (.694). Koerner did not commit an error in over 240 chances during her final three seasons in the outfield and was the only player in Notre Dame history to bat above .400, record 70 or more hits and score 50 or more runs in three consecutive season (2013-15).
