Hampton accepted to officer training

UNIVERSITY VILLAGE - Erica Hampton believes her experience as a captain on the field for the University of Illinois at Chicago softball team will prepare her to make critical decisions powering a nuclear U.S. Navy ship.

The Flames senior catcher was accepted into the Navy's Nuclear Propulsion Officer Candidate Program earlier this year. After graduating from UIC in December of 2015, Hampton will start the 12-week Officer Training School in South Carolina before serving four years in the Navy and four additional years in the Navy Reserve.

Her time on the water will be spent with a naval team in charge of running a ship's nuclear power plant and making sure no accidents happen.
