Reeds Spring senior Izzy Erickson set the school’s career home run record, hitting her 17th in a Tuesday victory over Seneca.

A career full of records continued on Tuesday for Reeds Spring High School senior Izzy Erickson.

Erickson set the school’s career home run mark, belting her 17th round-tripper in the third inning of a 2-1 victory at Seneca.

Erickson’s 17th homer topped the previous mark of 16, held by Marley Harmon, who graduated in 2013.

Erickson already shared the Reeds Spring records for single-season home runs and holds school pitching marks for career strikeouts, single-season strikeouts and career shutouts. At the plate, she holds school records for single-season batting average and single-season home runs (tied).

Reeds Spring improved to 16-5 with the victory and has two road games remaining in the regular season – at Springfield Hillcrest on Thursday afternoon and at Nixa on Monday.
