Former Oregon Duck Geri Ann Glasco Killed In A Fatal Car Crash

It is with deep sadness that we report that we lost one of our sisters, former Oregon Duck Geri Ann Glasco died in a fatal car crash in Louisiana on the I-10 sometime after 1:00 am.

The five car pile up involved her vehicle that was struck from behind forcing her car into the back of an 18-wheeler.

Glasco, the daughter of the University of Louisiana-Lafayette head coach, was 24 years old and served as the Volunteer Assistant Coach for the Ragin’ Cajuns. 

She started her freshman career at the University of Georgia where she was named SEC Co-Freshman of the Year and then transferred to the University of Oregon her junior year. 

Glasco was a feared hitter and a staple pitcher helping lead the Ducks to two Pac-12 Conference Titles. One of the most memorable moments in her career was hitting three home runs in one game against Washington. 

The youngest of three was an active member of the community at Oregon working at the Center for Autism and Related Disorders in Portland, accumulated over 300 volunteer hours helping in elementary schools, participated in Read Across America and Special Olympics, volunteered at a food pantry and planted trees for Trees for Humanity.

During her high school career, she was named the National Gatorade Player of the Year and was Georgia 3A Pitcher of the Year and Player of the Year. 

In 2016, she was drafted at the No. 20 pick by the Akron Racers.

We will miss Geri Ann and all that she gave to the sport. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Glasco family.
