Mattson finishes college basketball season at D3 UWS
Ely’s Erika Mattson has completed her third season of college basketball.
The former Ely Timberwolves standout played in all 24 games and started eight for the University of Wisconsin-Superior.
Mattson, a junior forward, played roughly 15 minutes per game for the Division III Yellowjackets, who went 10-14.
For the season, Mattson averaged 4.0 points, 3.4 rebounds and 0.8 assists per contest.
She had a season-high 10 points in a Feb. 4 game with Bethany Lutheran and paced her team with eight rebounds Feb. 10, in a loss to North Central.
Mattson is majoring in biology and chemistry at UWS, and moved on to the school after earning numerous all-conference honors in basketball, softball and volleyball for the Timberwolves.
Mattson is a two-sport athlete at UWS and is also part of the school’s softball team.
She was a backup infielder last season on a UWS team that won 33 games and finished a win shy of qualifying for the NCAA Division III national tournament.
