NU student-athletes also earned a league-leading 626 spots on the Big 12 Commissioner’s Fall and Spring Academic Honor Rolls. The hard work, dedication and commitment of Nebraska’s studentathletes in the classroom resulted in 71 current or former studentathletes earning degrees from August of 2008 through May of 2009. The Huskers continued to set the graduation standard among Big 12 Conference schools by improving their Exhausted Eligibility Graduation Rate to 94 percent.

NEBRASKA SOFTBALL ENDOWED SCHOLARSHIPS RICHARD RAIMONDI

SCHOLARSHIP In December of 2001, the family of former NU softball player Melanie Raimondi created the first fully endowed scholarship for a female athlete at Nebraska. The scholarship, which is named for her deceased father, Richard Raimondi, is awarded annually to a member of the Nebraska softball team. The recipients of the award have been: Amber Burgess (2002-03); KoKo Tacha (2003-04); Sheena Lawrick (2004-05); Lizzy Aumua (2005-06); Meghan Mullin (2006-07 and 2007-08); and Julie Brechtel (2008-09 and 2009-10).

Julie Brechtel was presented with the Richard Raimondi Memorial Scholarship by Dana Raimondi during the Big Red Fall Classic at Bowlin Stadium last fall.

“(Melanie) was never a star player, but her father was so proud of her being able to do that - get a Division I scholarship. He lived and breathed softball. He would have loved the new softball complex. I think he's going to be at every one of those games (in spirit)."

--Dana Raimondi

JULIE GEIS

SCHOLARSHIP Nebraska’s second fully endowed softball scholarship is the Julie Geis Memorial Scholarship. Named in honor of the former Husker, it was fully endowed in August of 2006. The scholarship is awarded annually to a Husker softball player from the state of Nebraska, as Julie was a native of Beaver Crossing. The recipients have been: Amanda Buchholz (2002-03); Peaches James (2003-04); Katie Linke (2004-05); Jaime Borg (200506); Molly Hill (2006-07 and 2007-08); and Heidi Foland (2008-09 and 2009-10).

A four-year letterwinner, Julie Geis was a victim of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in New York City. Geis was on the 105th floor of the World Trade Center south tower. In Geis’ memory, her No. 15 jersey became the third retired jersey in program history on Oct. 12, 2001.

“Julie was the epitome of a Nebraska student-athlete. She grew up on the farm, worked hard, earned a scholarship, played ball and was very grateful for her education. She was a wonderful human being, a warm, generous and kindhearted individual."

SCHEDULE NOTES

» NU is scheduled to play 55 regular-season games in 2010, one fewer than the NCAA limit of 56 games. The Huskers are scheduled to play 20 contests at Bowlin Stadium, 18 games at a neutral site and 17 away games. Nebraska's 17 true road games are the most since the Huskers played 25 away games in 1994. » Of the Huskers' 55 regular-season games, 22 will be against teams that qualified for the 2009 NCAA Tournament. Of those 22 games against postseason teams, 10 will be played on the road, eight at Bowlin Stadium and four at a neutral site.

» Nebraska is scheduled to play 10 games against teams that ended the 2009 season ranked in the top 20 of the USA Today/NFCA Coaches poll. Included in that total are five games against top-10 teams and eight contests against top-15 foes. » Nebraska's home schedule features several highlights. Among the 20 games are eight games against 2009 NCAA Tournament teams and six games against teams that ended last season ranked among the top 15. Three of the four teams that finished ahead of Nebraska in the final 2009 Big 12 standings visit Bowlin Stadium in 2010, as well as the league champions in each of the last three seasons (Baylor, Texas A&M and Oklahoma). » When Wisconsin visits Bowlin Stadium for a March 24 doubleheader, it will mark the first time in the NCAA era (1982-present) that the Huskers have played a regularseason home game against a Big Ten opponent. » The Big 12 Championship will be in Oklahoma City for the 15th straight season. Nebraska has made it to the championship game a league-high seven times, winning titles in 1998, 2000 and 2004. » The Women's College World Series will be held in Oklahoma City for the 13th straight year and the 19th time overall. The 2010 season will mark the sixth year the championship will be decided in a three-game series, instead of one winner-take-all game. Nebraska ranks seventh nationally with seven all-time appearances in the Women's College World Series. The Huskers' last trip came in 2002.

Season Outlook Revelle sees the potential for a breakout season from Hagemann, citing the tradition of dramatic improvement by Husker pitchers from their freshman to sophomore seasons. Over the last decade, Nebraska pitchers have lowered their ERA by an average of 0.99 from their freshman to sophomore seasons. Revelle believes Hagemann has the ability to follow in the footsteps of former Husker Ashley DeBuhr, who went from a 3.82 ERA as a freshman to a 1.84 ERA during an All-Big 12 sophomore campaign. With Mackin and Hagemann, the Huskers have the potential for a dominant duo in the circle, one Revelle believes can produce similar results to those of DeBuhr and Hill in 2007. That season, Nebraska ranked ninth nationally with a team ERA of 1.41 and the Huskers hosted an NCAA Regional despite an offense that scored the fewest runs of any Nebraska team in the last 16 years. The 2010 Huskers expect far more production out of this year’s lineup, especially as the hitters are more familiar with the system of second-year hitting coach Diane Miller. “I see a little shift in our offensive philosophy,” Revelle said. “We have more expectations of being able to drive the ball. We’re not as fast and speedy, but we’re hitting the ball farther and harder. “It helps that we’re in the second year with Coach Miller. The players have really bought into her system and you can see they’re more comfortable with it." Although the offense must replace seven of the top eight batting averages from last season, the Huskers return their top two power hitters. Like the pitching staff, the lineup will also be bolstered by the return of several key players. Mackin put up solid offensive numbers in her two seasons at Fresno State, batting .279 with 13 doubles, eight home runs and 60 RBIs. Hagemann, who holds the Nebraska high school record for RBIs in a season, is also expected to contribute offensively after focusing on pitching last season, when she earned only 14 at bats and hit .286. Sophomore Ashley Guile also returns from an elbow injury that kept her out of action last season. Guile posted the Huskers’ third-best on-base percentage and fourth-highest RBI total as a freshman in 2008. Junior Crystal Gonzalez is also back after missing all but four games over the last two seasons. Gonzalez's return gives the Huskers a speedy slap-hitting option as well as terrific defense in center field. While the return of the injured players brings potential to the Husker lineup, Nebraska’s top returning hitter from last season is junior Julie Brechtel. In a breakout 2009 campaign, Brechtel batted .313, drew 25 walks and became the first Husker sophomore to slug .500 in a season since All-American Ali Viola in 1996. Brechtel also hit six home runs last season, tying for teamhigh honors with classmate Heidi Foland, a two-year starter. Add in three-year starter Whitney Barrett, sophomore Jamie Gay, who emerged as a lateseason starter last year, and a talented freshman class and the Huskers appear to have the pieces necessary to continue the program’s return to national prominence. “Our goal is to win the Big 12 and our dream would be going to the World Series,” Revelle said. “I hope one day soon our goal will be the World Series and we’re working to get the program back to that mindset.”

A casual observer of Nebraska softball might look at the 2010 season as a rebuilding year for the Huskers. It's easy to see why, as Nebraska is faced with the daunting challenge of replacing the largest senior class in program history, one that combined for more than 1,000 starts and 10 All-Big 12 awards over the last four seasons. Replacing a senior class that included seven starters and four All-Big 12 selections from last year’s NCAA Tournament team may be reason to temper expectations for 2010. But not at Nebraska, a tradition-rich program determined to return to its status among the sport’s elite. “I think it’s an exciting thing,” Head Coach Rhonda Revelle said of replacing the departed senior class. “The junior class got a taste of the postseason last year and now they really believe they can take this team farther. The sophomores see opportunities to make an impact this year after kind of realizing they had to wait their turn last year with so many seniors. And the freshmen always come in anxious to compete. “We have more competition overall this season and that will benefit us.” What will also benefit the Huskers is the return of injured players. “We had a good group of talent that was unable to play last season due to injuries,” Revelle said. “They have a lot of experience and there was a lot of talent sitting in the dugout last year.” The return of that talent should boost a roster that includes a nice mix of returning veterans and talented underclassmen. But even with the return of the injured players, is it realistic for Nebraska to expect similar - or even better - results than last season? Revelle certainly believes so and she has a message for those who believe this preseason optimism may be nothing more than coach-speak. “Pitching can do tremendous things in this game and you need to look at our staff first,” Revelle said. “I really feel like if we’re healthy, we’ll have as good of a pitching staff as any team in the conference.” That’s a bold statement, considering Nebraska finished second in the Big 12 in ERA last season behind first-team All-Big 12 hurler Molly Hill, who threw more than 71 percent of the staff’s total innings, including more than 91 percent during conference play. With Hill lost to graduation, Nebraska will be counting on a healthy return from junior right-hander Robin Mackin and more consistency from sophomore right-hander Ashley Hagemann. Mackin established herself as one of the premiere pitchers in the game during her twoyear career at Fresno State, which culminated with third-team All-America honors in 2007. But Mackin has yet to start a Division I game since that season. After taking the 2008 season off in preparations for her Olympic debut with Team Canada, Mackin underwent shoulder surgery last March in her first season at Nebraska and has worked her way back. If healthy, Mackin will give the Huskers a poised and talented veteran in the circle, as she is one of only two Division I pitchers with Olympic experience and one of only 13 returning All-America pitchers. “Robin has gotten herself into excellent pitching shape and we think she’s healthy and ready to go,” Revelle said. “She threw well and did a lot of great things in the fall, even though she still wasn’t completely healthy. She has a great poise in the circle and brings a tremendous presence to our whole team when she’s got the ball." While Mackin’s ability to return to her All-America form is a key this season, so is the continued development of Hagemann, who showed flashes of dominance as a freshman. Hagemann ranked second in the conference in strikeouts per seven innings (9.61) and second in opponent batting average (.189) last year. “We’ve seen a lot of improvement out of Ashley,” Revelle said. “You can see it starting to click for her. She has a deeper understanding of what it takes to be a successful pitcher at this level. She had some good moments and did some things well last year, and she’s built off that to work on becoming more consistent.”

The pitching Staff

Nebraska plans to use a three-pitcher rotation this spring with all three hurlers having at least one season of experience. Junior right-hander Robin Mackin and sophomore right-hander Ashley Hagemann are expected to be the Huskers' primary pitchers, while senior right-hander Alex Hupp will also see time in the circle. Mackin has the proven potential to be a game-changer for Nebraska, as she was an AllAmerican on the field and in the classroom as a sophomore at Fresno State in 2007. Mackin has

28


battled injuries over the last two years, as she has not made a Division I start since May of 2007 and made just one appearance with the Huskers last season before undergoing season-ending shoulder surgery in March. When healthy, Mackin has shown the ability to be one of the most dominating pitchers in the game. In two years at Fresno State, Mackin posted a 64-25 record with a 1.45 ERA and 771 strikeouts. She has also competed at the highest levels of international play, including making three appearances and posting a 2.10 ERA at the 2008 Olympics. A hard thrower, Mackin appears to have worked her way back to health. Although less than 100 percent, Mackin made four starts last fall, allowing only one run in 18.0 innings. She also added 28 strikeouts while holding opposing hitters to a paltry .105 average. Mackin's ability to return to full strength would be a major boost to the staff. To illustrate her dominant ability, consider how her statistics at Fresno State would rank in the Husker record books. Mackin's two-year totals as a Bulldog would leave her in impressive standing in the Nebraska career record book, including second in no-hitters, fifth in strikeouts, shutouts and complete games, seventh in victories and innings pitched, eighth in ERA and 10th in saves. The Huskers have another powering force in the circle in Hagemann. Although she does not possess the experience of Mackin, Hagemann demonstrated periods of brilliance during her freshman season. Her ability to become more consistent after an offseason of maturity and development could give the Huskers a pair of dominating right-handers. Hagemann was 6-4 last season with a 3.07 ERA, but hidden within the statistics are glimpses of her ability. She allowed only 49 hits in 70.2 innings to rank second among all Big 12 pitchers with a .189 opponent batting average. Hagemann also posted 97 strikeouts to rank second among Big 12 pitchers with an average of 9.61 strikeouts per seven innings. But there was a learning curve for Hagemann during her freshman season. More than half of the hits she allowed went for extra bases, including 12 home runs, which directly led to 20 of the 31 runs she allowed (65 percent). During the offseason, Hagemann dedicated herself to becoming more consistent. She worked extensively with Husker pitching coach Lori Sippel on developing and locating her pitches, as well as deepening her understanding of the mental aspects of pitching, including working the count. Her work began to pay dividends during the fall season, when Hagemann posted a 1.08 ERA in a team-high 26.0 innings. She also added 40 strikeouts while posting a strikeout-to-walk ratio of nearly 4-to-1, in addition to holding hitters to a .125 average. Hupp will be the Huskers' third option in the circle. She owns a 13-8 career record with a 2.84 ERA in 167.2 innings. Hupp posted her best statistical season last year in a similar role to what she is expected to play this season. Hupp went 2-0 in 2009 with a 1.65 ERA and posted one shutout in her two starts, while allowing only 10 hits on the season. With her contrasting style, Hupp is a nice complement to Mackin and Hagemann. In addition to her duties in the circle, Hupp will also compete for a starting spot in the outfield. All three pitchers are expected to contribute offensively. Counting her two years at Fresno State, Mackin is the team's career offensive leader in nearly every statistical category, including hits (95), doubles (13), home runs (8) and RBIs (60). Her .279 career batting average is also tops among all players with at least 15 career at bats. Mackin could also serve as the Huskers' designated player when she's not pitching.

Hagemann saw limited action offensively last season as she primarily focused her efforts on pitching. She is expected to return to the lineup this season after going 4-for-14 as a freshman. During the fall, Hagemann went 6-for-13 (.462) with a double, a home run and three RBIs. She also drew one walk and did not strike out. Hupp is a career .136 hitter, but possesses solid power. Ten of her 23 career hits have gone for extra bases, including seven doubles and three home runs. She hit a career-best .219 last year, while producing four extra-base hits and eight RBIs in only 32 at bats.

The catchers

Two sophomores and a freshman will compete for the starting catcher position left open by the graduation of 2009 All-Big 12 selection Amanda Duran. Sophomore Ashley Guile, who missed all of 2009 with an elbow injury, is the frontrunner to be the Huskers' everyday catcher. Fellow sophomore Kirby Wright is expected to push Guile for playing time after serving as Nebraska's backup catcher last season. New to the mix is freshman Megan Southworth, who may have a hard time breaking into the catching rotation, although her bat is expected to earn her time in the lineup this season. Guile saw time at catcher as a freshman in 2008, starting 25 games behind the plate. She then redshirted last season while continuing to rehab the elbow on her throwing arm following offseason surgery. As a freshman, Guile's bat earned her 50 starts in the middle of the Husker lineup. Expected to be a middle-of-the-order hitter again in 2010, Guile batted .250 as a freshman but showed great plate discipline by drawing 25 walks, the most by a Husker freshman since All-American Jennifer Lizama walked 26 times in 1997. Defensively, Guile committed only one error at catcher, but threw out only 3-of-26 base stealers. Wright is arguably the Huskers' top defensive catcher. She earned three starts behind the plate in 2009 and was perfect in 23 chances while throwing out both runners who attempted to steal against her. Offensively, Wright earned only nine at bats last season as she adjusted to Division I pitching. Although she did not record a hit, Wright displayed a disciplined approach, drawing three walks and recording one RBI on a sacrifice fly. Last fall, Wright went 2-for-7 at the plate with a double and a run scored. Southworth comes to Nebraska after a stellar prep career at Papillion-LaVista High School, where she was a two-time state champion and a three-time all-state selection. Southworth is solid offensively and defensively. Over her final two high school seasons, Southworth hit nearly .450 with 21 doubles, five home runs and 56 RBIs. During the Huskers' fall season, Southworth went 4-for-10 at the plate with a pair of doubles and a team-high five walks. In addition to working at catcher, Southworth could also see time as the designated player or in the outfield.

The infield

Nebraska returns four infielders with starting experience, but the only loss on the infield is a big one, as four-time All-Big 12 selection Crystal Carwile started all but four games at first base over the past four seasons. The Huskers return their starting middle infielders from the past two seasons in senior shortstop Whitney Barrett and junior second baseman Julie Brechtel. Junior Heidi Foland and sophomore Jamie Gay also return, after the duo split time at third base last season. But even with both returning, freshman Gabby Banda is the frontrunner to start at third, while classmate Keela Scott will back up Brechtel at second base. Barrett is a three-year starter on the infield, including starting at shortstop each of the past two seasons. Barrett has shown flashes of potential at the plate. She hit .247 in 2008 and although that total dipped last season, Barrett still produced career-high totals of 20 runs scored, 12 RBIs, 18 walks and four stolen bases, while hitting her first career home run. Nebraska's only letterwinner ever from Alabama, Barrett is best known for her defense. She boasts a .947 career fielding percentage, including a .951 mark last year at short. She was steady all season and committed only one error over the final 18 games of 2009. Brechtel enters her third season as the Huskers' starting second baseman and teams with Barrett to give Nebraska one of the top middle infield defenses in the conference. Like Barrett, Brechtel is a solid defender, but Brechtel broke out at the plate in a big way in 2009. En route to earning her first career Big 12 Player of the Week honor and a spot on the Big 12 Championship all-tournament team, Brechtel proved to be one of the Huskers' most consistent hitters. Brechtel batted .313 in 2009 with seven doubles, six home runs and 28 RBIs. After hitting .220 with only four doubles as a freshman, Brechtel emerged to post the fourth-best slugging percentage by a sophomore in Husker history. Brechtel also showed patience at the plate, coaxing 25 walks - the fifth-highest total ever by a Husker sophomore - en route to posting a .431 on-base percentage. Her continued emergence offensively, the experience gained in her 105 career starts and her versatility to be able to hit anywhere in the lineup are valuable assets for a relatively young Husker lineup. Defensively, she has committed only 12 errors in two seasons, including a 31-game errorless streak in 2009 and a pair of 12-game stretches without an error in 2008. At third base, Foland and Gay have combined to start all but three games at the position over the last two seasons. Even so, Banda has emerged as the likely starter as Gay has worked at both first and third base, while Foland has worked primarily at first base.

The outfield

A native of Grand Island, Neb., Foland is one of the Huskers' best athletes. She turned down Division II scholarship offers in basketball to walk on with the Nebraska softball team and her potential has shown up in a variety of ways on the diamond despite relative inexperience with the sport. Foland batted .252 as a freshman and showed increased power as a sophomore. She recorded 13 extra-base hits in 2009, including tying Brechtel for team-high honors with six home runs. Foland's slugging percentage increased more than .100 and thanks to 11 walks and six hit-by-pitches, her on-base percentage was on par with her freshman season despite a dip in her batting average. Defensively, Foland owns a .906 career fielding percentage, but her athleticism could be a big asset at first base. After seeing limited action early last season, Gay emerged to make 15 starts during her freshman campaign. She started 12 of the season's final 15 games, including 11 at third base. Although she finished the season with a .196 average, Gay flashed her power potential by homering once and adding three doubles as 40 percent of her hits went for extra bases. Defensively, Gay posted a .943 fielding percentage but in Big 12 Conference play, Gay earned nine starts at third base and was perfect in 44 chances. With the emergence of Banda and an opening at first base, Gay is a likely candidate to compete for playing time at both first base and third base. Banda enjoyed a terrific fall season and proved to be a natural at third base, making her the frontrunner to earn the starting job despite the returning experience of Foland and Gay. A quick and smooth fielder, Banda most impressed the Husker coaching staff with her glove work, but she also had bright spots at the plate. A tough out, Banda hit .300 during the fall season, going 6-for-20 with a double and three RBIs. She also scored five runs and struck out only once. A natural athlete, Banda was a basketball and softball star for Angleton High School. The first Texas native to sign with Nebraska in the 17-year tenure of Head Coach Rhonda Revelle, Banda batted .412 with 46 runs scored, 10 doubles, five triples and 23 RBIs as a senior in high school while earning third-team all-state honors from the Texas Sports Writers Association. Scott, another freshman, will back up Brechtel at second base while adjusting to the Division I level. Scott is also expected to be one of the Huskers' top pinch-runners and could see some action at the plate. During the fall season, Scott was 0-for-5 with a pair of walks offensively, while scoring five runs. An intelligent student and athlete, Scott is the first Missouri native to ever sign with the Husker program. Despite missing her senior season at Liberty High School, Scott was a twotime first-team all-district selection. Sophomore Ashley Guile could also figure into the infield mix. Although she is expected to be Nebraska's starting catcher, Guile has some experience at first base and could move there when she's not catching in an effort to keep her bat in the lineup.

After losing all three starting outfielders from 2009 - including two three-year starters and one two-year starter - the outfield promises to be the most competitive position for Nebraska in 2010. A slew of Huskers will compete for starting positions and playing time in the outfield and that competition is expected to continue into the tournament portion of NU's schedule. Eight players are competing to replace the wealth of lost starting experience, including All-Big 12 performers Haley Long and Meghan Mullin. Six of those players have never started a game in the outfield, as only senior Alex Hupp and junior Crystal Gonzalez have starting outfield experience, but that experience came as freshmen in 2007 for both players. Hupp started 19 games in left field in 2007 but spent the 2008 and 2009 seasons working primarily at pitcher. Hupp is expected to be the Huskers' No. 3 pitcher this season in addition to competing for a starting outfield spot, most likely in left or right field. The most experienced outfielder on the Nebraska roster, Hupp is still relatively new to the position, but she brings big bat potential to the lineup. Although she is only a career .136 hitter, nearly half of her career hits have been for extra bases. She ranks fourth among all Huskers with seven career doubles and three career home runs, despite limited opportunities at the plate. Gonzalez is the only other Husker with outfield experience, although she has been plagued by injuries. Nebraska's top defensive outfielder, Gonzalez appeared in 30 games as a freshman in 2007, earning 23 starts in center field. Her rookie season came to an abrupt end when she tore her ACL and missed the second half of the year. Gonzalez suffered two more ACL tears, causing her to miss the entire 2008 season and all but four games of the 2009 campaign. When healthy, Gonzalez is a natural center fielder with good speed and a strong arm. Offensively, she has earned only 57 career at bats. She owns a career .211 average, but her versatility as a slap-hitter and speedy base runner could provide a boost to the Nebraska lineup. Juniors Heidi Foland and Tori Tyson will also figure into the outfield mix. Foland has been the Huskers' starting third baseman the past two seasons, but could see time in the outfield with a lack of experience at the position and the emergence of freshman Gabby Banda at third base. Foland got her first work in the outfield during the fall season and the move seemed natural for the talented athlete. She is expected to primarily work at first base this season, but could figure into the outfield mix as well. Offensively, Foland tied for the team lead with six home runs last season, while she is a career .231 hitter and has stolen 19 bases in 20 attempts. Also making a switch to the outfield this season is Tyson, who appeared in 17 games as a pitcher over the last two years. Tyson is not expected to pitch this season, instead focusing her full-time attention on the outfield. With her pitching role, Tyson's offensive impact was limited to only one at bat and a pair of pinch-running appearances over the past two seasons. Tyson is not only converting to a new position, but she is also working on becoming a hitter after primarily slapping before this season. With a renewed focus on her offensive skills, Tyson's versatility as a hitter and slapper could be a nice addition to the Husker lineup. Competing for a starting outfield job among the sophomore class are Madison Drake and Nikki Haget. Both players entered the Husker program as infielders, before being moved to the outfield. Drake made the move to the outfield prior to last season, while Haget did not make the move until midway through her freshman campaign. Drake appeared in 16 contests in 2009, scoring seven runs as a pinch-runner and stealing one base. She pinch hit only once, but she showed potential at the plate during the Huskers' fall season. Drake went 5-for-10 last fall to post a team-best .500 batting average. She also doubled, drove in three runs and drew one walk. Haget's role as the Huskers' top pinch-runner last season did not allow her to get any work defensively or at the plate. Despite an injury that kept her out of 20 straight games, Haget still pinch ran in 27 contests and scored 11 runs while stealing two bases in three attempts. During the fall season, Haget started six games and went 4-for-14 with six runs scored and a team-high five RBIs. She worked primarily in center field during the fall and as a slap-hitter, she is a natural fit for either the top or bottom of the Husker order. The primary freshman in the mix is Brooke Thomason, who was considered to be a leading candidate for a season-opening starting job before undergoing surgery following the fall season. Thomason is expected to be healthy this season and will figure prominently into the outfield rotation, although she could be limited early in the year as she continues to return to full strength. Thomason went 4-for-16 last fall with a pair of runs scored and three RBIs. She was perfect defensively in 11 chances. In her prep career at Blue Valley Northwest, Thomason earned firstteam all-state honors in Kansas' largest classification as a senior. She batted .507 as a senior, .470 as a junior and .527 as a sophomore, while finishing her career with a .498 average, 30 doubles, 17 triples, seven home runs and 81 RBIs. Fellow freshman Megan Southworth could also see time in the outfield in addition to working into the Huskers' three-catcher rotation. Southworth showed strong offensive potential in the fall and if her bat makes it hard to keep her off the field, she could land in the outfield. Overall, competition for outfield playing time will be fierce this season and head coach Rhonda Revelle said a candidate's impact on the Husker lineup could be a major factor when penciling in the lineup.

The Huskers


Whitney Barrett #

20

senior l infielder l 5-4 wetumpka, ala. l wetumpka hs

in a two-game series with national runner-up Texas A&M, including a 2-for-2 effort in the first game. Barrett continued her hot hitting with a 2-for-3 day with a run, an RBI and a stolen base two days later against Iowa State. She then finished 3-for-7 in a doubleheader with Kansas the next day. Barrett closed her hitting streak with a perfect 2-for-2 game against Missouri three days later, recording her first career triple against the Tigers while tallying a career-best two RBIs.

The most experienced player on the Nebraska roster, Whitney Barrett has appeared in 144 games in a Husker uniform, including 137 career starts. Barrett enters her third year as the Huskers’ starting shortstop in 2010, and her fourth year as a starter overall. The only letterwinner from Alabama in program history, Barrett is best known for her consistent defense up the middle. She has played error-free ball in better than 85 percent of her career games and has posted three separate stretches where she has gone at least 15 straight games without committing an error. Offensively, Barrett is a career .201 hitter, but she hit .325 during conference play and .247 overall in 2008. Barrett showed an improved approach at the plate in 2009, when she walked a career-high 18 times, nearly matching her two-year career total (21). She also produced her first career home run while totaling a career-high 12 RBIs.

freshman Season [2007]

Barrett started 39 games in her freshman season, including the final 26 at second base, while batting leadoff in 22 of those contests. She scored 12 runs and drove in six in the leadoff spot. Barrett batted .031 higher in Big 12 games than in non-conference action and hit .240 in 18 home games, scoring 10 runs, driving in four and posting a .345 on-base percentage. Barrett’s production and availability were hampered early in the season as she suffered through an eye injury and a hand injury. She was one of three freshmen who started the season opener, but she was not in the batting order due to her injuries. After recording her first career hit and RBI against DePaul on the second day of her career, Barrett matched or exceeded her career totals in runs, hits and RBIs in a doubleheader against Drake in late March. She went a career-high 3-for-4 with her second career RBI and her first extra-base hit in game one while hitting a walk-off seventh-inning RBI double to break a 3-3 tie for her first game-winning RBI. The three hits matched her career total entering the game. Barrett then scored a career-high two runs in game two and kept the momentum going that weekend with a 4-for-8 effort that included two runs and an RBI in a doubleheader against Texas Tech in her Big 12 debut. Defensively, Barrett committed just one error over her final 95 chances after committing four errors in her first 29 chances. She finished the year with a career-best .960 fielding percentage.

Junior Season [2009]

Barrett set a slew of career highs in 2009 in her second year as the Huskers’ starting shortstop. She started 52 games at short and finished with career-high totals of 20 runs, 12 RBIs, 18 walks and four stolen bases. Although her average dipped in 2009, Barrett’s career-high 18 walks helped her post a .308 on-base percentage. She finished the year with four multi-hit games and four multi-RBI games. Defensively, Barrett posted a .951 fielding percentage while committing only one error over her final 18 games. Barrett began the season in strong fashion, going 6-for-10 with six runs scored, a double, three RBIs, three walks and two stolen bases over the first five games.

while running her career-best scoreless innings streak to 21.0. After a tough stretch, Hupp broke a four-game losing streak by not allowing an earned run in a win against Northern Iowa. She then picked up her first career Big 12 victory and shutout with a three-hitter against defending Big 12 Champion Baylor that proved to be her final win of the year. She allowed at least one earned run in six of her final nine outings, but she twice held national runner-up Texas A&M scoreless in relief appearances. During the regular season, Hupp threw five scoreless innings of three-hit relief against the Aggies and in the Big 12 Championship game, Hupp tossed a perfect inning of relief. Offensively, Hupp received at least one at bat in 17 games, including 15 starts in the lineup. She went 2-for-3 with two RBIs in her no-hitter against UNC and finished the year with one multi-hit game and one multi-RBI contest.

career Honors & Awards

» 2009 Academic All-Big 12 First Team » Three-Time Big 12 Commissioner’s Honor Roll Selection » Nebraska Hero Service & Leadership Award Alex Hupp is one of the more versatile Huskers on the roster, and she will have the opportunity to earn playing time in a variety of ways during her senior season. Hupp has earned starts in the infield, in the circle, in the outfield and as a designated player during her first three seasons. In 2010, Hupp will primarily work in the outfield, where she will compete for a starting position. She will also serve as the Huskers’ No. 3 pitcher. Hupp boasts the second-most experience of any outfielder on the roster with 19 career starts, but it’s her ability with the bat that is expected to be Hupp’s biggest key to cracking the lineup. Boasting plenty of offensive potential, the Huskers are hopeful that Hupp will have a breakout season at the plate. She enters the year fourth on the team in career home runs, while nearly 50 percent of her career hits have gone for extra bases. In the circle, Hupp is expected to add a nice complement to Nebraska’s top two pitchers, Robin Mackin and Ashley Hagemann. Nebraska hopes Hupp will respond as well as she did last year, when she went 2-0 with a career-low 1.65 ERA in a similar role.

freshman Season [2007]

Hupp started 37 games as a freshman and appeared in a total of 51 contests, seeing time in the field and in the circle. She earned 18 starts as the designated player and 19 in left field. Her best offensive performance came off the bench when she went 2-for-3 with a home run, a double and three RBIs at No. 4 Oklahoma. On the year, Hupp was NU’s top pinch-hitter, going 3-for-11 with three RBIs. She laced a two-run, pinch-hit double that gave Nebraska the lead at Hawaii in the second game of her career and went 2-for-3 against Western Illinois one month later to mark her first career multi-hit game. Hupp also scored the first two runs of her career while adding her first career home run against WIU. Hupp finished the season with two multi-hit games and three-multi RBI contests, including two multi-RBI efforts against Big 12 foes. In her first career start in the circle, Hupp tossed a one-hit shutout against Portland State, becoming the first Husker to throw a shutout in her first start since All-American Peaches James in 2001. Hupp picked up her second win by tossing 4.1 innings and allowing only one earned run against Seton Hall. She closed her pitching season by allowing one earned run in 3.1 innings against Delaware State and Western Illinois in early March.

Junior Season [2009]

Hupp saw action at the plate and in the circle in her junior season. Hupp’s offensive numbers were the best of her career despite earning only 32 at bats, the fewest of her career. She made the most of those at bats, finishing with a career-best .219 average, while totaling three doubles, one home run and eight RBIs. Each of those totals were one shy of her career highs set during her freshman season, when she earned more than three times as many at bats (104). Hupp also finished with a .406 slugging percentage that was .185 higher than her previous career high and a .316 on-base percentage that was .085 higher than her previous career best. Hupp appeared in 33 games, including seven starts. In the circle, Hupp also posted career-best numbers. After throwing 133.0 innings and emerging as the Huskers’ No. 2 pitcher in 2008, Hupp saw less action in 2009 with the return of a healthy Molly Hill and the addition of freshman Ashley Hagemann. Hupp posted a 2-0 record on the year and one shutout in two starts. She boasted a 1.65 ERA in 17.0 innings, as opponents hit just .172 against her and struck out 11 times. Hupp added her second career save while allowing only two extra-base hits all year.

In her second year as NU’s starting second baseman, Brechtel started all 54 games in 2009, as she was one of three players - and the only non-senior - to start every game. Brechtel enjoyed a breakout season after showing great potential as a freshman. She finished 2009 with a .313 average, seven doubles, six home runs and 28 RBIs. Brechtel tied for the team lead with six home runs, and she ranked among the top three Huskers in doubles, RBIs, runs scored, walks, slugging percentage and on-base percentage. Brechtel finished with 13 extra-base hits after totaling only four doubles in 2008. Her slugging percentage increased from .252 in 2008 to .500 in 2009, as Brechtel became the first Husker sophomore to slug .500 in a season since three-time All-American Ali Viola in 1996.

Foland fared well in her freshman season after choosing to play softball at Nebraska rather than pursue Division II scholarship opportunities in basketball. She started 52 games and finished with a .252 average and 11 RBIs while striking out only 15 times. Foland batted .268 in Big 12 play while scoring seven times to rank second on the team. She also led NU with four stolen bases in Big 12 games only while ranking third with two doubles and four RBIs. Overall, Foland finished the year with six multi-hit games and two multi-RBI contests, including the Huskers’ highest individual RBI total of the season (five). She was also a perfect 9-of-9 on stolen bases and hit .367 in 22 home games, adding 10 RBIs, four doubles and seven runs scored. Foland recorded a single in her first career at bat against Idaho State on the season’s first day and also drew a walk and scored a run against the Bengals. Overall, she scored runs in three of her first five games. She hit .500 at the NFCA Leadoff Classic and recorded her first multi-hit game with a 2-for-2 effort against Tennessee Tech. Foland added another multi-hit game and her first RBI with a 2-for-3 performance against Syracuse the next day.

Displaying her team-first mentality, Foland made the switch to first base to open up a spot at third for freshman Gabby Banda, while also bringing athleticism to the right side of the infield. A former Division II basketball recruit, Foland’s athleticism should allow her to make a smooth transition to first base. As a converted third baseman, Foland possesses a strong arm and good quickness as well, as she has stolen 19 bases in 20 career attempts. Offensively, Foland has shown flashes of her potential as she searches for more consistency. She led all Husker freshmen with a .252 average in 2008 and earned the nod as the final Big 12 Player of the Week that season. Foland then displayed her power last season, tying for team-high honors with six home runs and one triple, while increasing her slugging percentage .121 despite a lower batting average.

sophomore season [2009]

Foland continued to make progress in reaching her potential on the diamond during her sophomore season. She started 42 games, including 41 at third base and although her average dipped .039 from her freshman season, Foland’s power numbers took a big leap. After slugging just .296 in 2008, Foland posted a mark of .417 in 2009. Thirteen of her 27 hits went for extra bases, as she tied for team-high honors with six home runs and one triple. Foland also added six doubles after recording five doubles, no triples and no home runs as a freshman. Despite a lower average, Foland’s on-base percentage was on par with her freshman season, as she drew 11 walks and was hit by six pitches to reach base at a .306 clip. Foland also scored a career-high 22 runs while stealing a career-high 10 bases in only 11 attempts. Defensively, Foland posted a .917 fielding percentage. Foland began her season in grand fashion at the Huskers’ season-opening tournament. She hit safely in all four games, going 6-for-11 with two doubles, her first two career home runs, two stolen bases, seven runs scored and seven RBIs. Foland kept the momentum going over the Huskers’ next four tournaments to wrap up an impressive showing during the tournament portion of Nebraska’s schedule. Over Nebraska’s 20-game tournament schedule, Foland batted .286 with 13 runs scored, 19 RBIs, three doubles and five home runs. At that point in the season, Foland had already surpassed her career totals in RBIs, home runs, extra-base hits and hit-by-pitches. Although her numbers dipped over the remainder of the season, Foland finished with six multi-hit games, five games where she scored two or more runs, three multi-RBI efforts and three games where she drew at least two walks. She also committed only five errors over her final 22 games.

junior l outfielder l 5-1 pomona, calif. l diamond bar hs

Before the injury, Gonzalez hit .214, going 12-for-56 with a pair of walks. She scored five runs and was perfect on five stolen base attempts. Gonzalez finished the year with one multi-hit game. She earned the opening-game start in center field against No. 24 Auburn and recorded a hit in each of her first three games, finishing 3-for-8 with a stolen base at the Hawaii Paradise Classic. She had two hits at the NFCA Leadoff Classic, while drawing her first walk and recording her first two career sacrifices. She hit safely in a career-high four-game stretch in the middle of March and went 1-for-4 in a two-game series at World Series qualifier Baylor in the only Big 12 action of her career. Defensively, Gonzalez committed two aggressive throwing errors while living up to her billing as one of the top prep outfielders in California. She made a key play in the Huskers’ win over No. 18 Georgia, starting an inning-ending double play by throwing out the tying run at home plate in the bottom of the sixth inning of NU’s one-run victory. Gonzalez also made a great catch in the eighth inning of a victory against No. 18 California, holding onto the ball while running and leaping into the center field fence at full speed.

career Honors & Awards » Nebraska Hero Service & Leadership Award Crystal Gonzalez is hoping for a healthy return to the diamond in 2010 after suffering a slew of injuries thus far in her career. Gonzalez started the Huskers’ season opener as a freshman and went on to start 23 games in her rookie year before her injury problems began. Gonzalez missed the final 22 games of her freshman season after tearing her ACL. After rehabbing her way back to health, Gonzalez suffered a second tear of the ACL just prior to the start of her sophomore season. After redshirting in 2008 and regaining the strength in her knee, Gonzalez finally saw the field again in 2009. She appeared in three of Nebraska’s first four games last season, before tearing the ACL in her other knee and missing the rest of the season. She has continued to persevere and is poised to contend for a starting job in the outfield this season. Gonzalez is arguably the Huskers’ top outfielder, as she possesses good speed and a strong arm. Offensively, injuries have limited her opportunities at the plate, as she has 12 hits and three walks in only 66 career plate appearances. Gonzalez has worked her way back to health again and hopes to regain a year of eligibility. After using a redshirt for the 2008 season, Gonzalez hopes she can stay healthy and petition the NCAA for a sixth-year of eligibility to gain back her sophomore season.

before nebraska

A standout at Diamond Bar High School, Gonzalez was named to the All-California Interscholastic Federation Division II second team, as well as earning second-team allstate honors from Calhisports.com. An outstanding outfielder, Gonzalez was labeled as “probably the best defensive outfielder in Southern California,” by the Los Angeles Times. She hit .404 with 21 runs scored and nine RBIs as the leadoff hitter for Diamond Bar en route to garnering all-star honors from the Times. Gonzalez was also a two-time all-league selection and won two ASA national championships with the Corona Angels in addition to a pair of national runner-up finishes. Gonzalez is one of three current Huskers who played for the Angels, who are coached by Marty Tyson, the father of Husker junior Tori Tyson.

sophomore season [2009]

After returning to the field for the first time in nearly two seasons in 2009, Gonzalez saw another season cut short due to injury. She missed the second half of her freshman season in 2007 and all of the 2008 campaign while recovering from a pair of ACL injuries on the same knee. Gonzalez saw her first game action in nearly two years when she appeared in three games at the Huskers’ season-opening UNI-Dome Classic in 2009. She went 0-for-1 with a walk and a run scored at the tournament, which proved to be her only action of the season. Gonzalez suffered another torn ACL - this time on the other knee - in practice prior to Nebraska’s second tournament and missed the remainder of the year (50 games).

redshirt season [2008]

Gonzalez hoped to return to the diamond in 2008 after missing the second half of her freshman season following a torn ACL. Her hopes were not realized, as she tore the same ACL while back home in California during the Holiday break between the fall 2007 and spring 2008 semesters. Gonzalez underwent season-ending surgery when she returned to Lincoln and used her redshirt season while rehabbing her knee again.

freshman season [2007]

Gonzalez appeared in 30 of the Huskers’ first 35 games and earned 23 starts before suffering a torn ACL prior to a doubleheader with Texas Tech on the first day of April. She underwent season-ending surgery to repair the torn ACL and spent the rest of the year rehabbing the injury.

at fresno state [2006 & 2007]

Mackin starred at Fresno State for two seasons and made an immediate impact for the Bulldogs as a freshman in 2006. In her rookie year, she set school records with 19 double-digit strikeout games, 402 strikeouts and a 10.3 strikeouts-per-seven-innings average while ranking in the top 10 in five other categories. Mackin set the school record for most strikeouts in a seven-inning game with 17 against Kansas and also struck out nine consecutive Jayhawks to tie that school record. She finished the year with two no-hitters, five one-hitters and six twohitters. Mackin also defeated three ranked opponents, including No. 10 Stanford in the NCAA Regional, 10th-ranked Oklahoma and No. 22 DePaul, allowing just one earned run and only 10 hits while striking out 22 in the three outings. She ranked 14th in the nation in strikeouts per seven innings, 15th in victories and 50th in ERA. Offensively, Mackin batted .323 with 10 doubles, five homers, 31 RBIs and a .484 slugging percentage, while posting 15 multi-hit games and eight multi-RBI contests. Mackin continued to carry the workload in the circle as a sophomore, when she made a school-record 55 appearances and tied the then-school record with 36 wins. Mackin recorded a season-high 16 strikeouts against No. 2 Arizona State and threw her third career no-hitter against BYU. She went 11-1 in conference play and finished the year ranked fifth nationally in wins, 19th in saves, 20th in ERA and 39th in strikeouts per seven innings. Offensively, Mackin hit .247 with 11 multi-hit games, three home runs and 29 RBIs in her sophomore campaign. Overall, Mackin led the Western Athletic Conference in ERA, strikeouts and victories in each of her two seasons. She was two-time first-team All-WAC and was selected as the 2006 WAC Freshman and Pitcher of the Year. Mackin was also a two-time WAC all-tournament team selection, earning MVP honors while leading Fresno State to the title as a junior. Mackin earned third-team All-America and CoSIDA Academic All-America honors in 2007. A two-time NFCA All-West Region selection, Mackin was also an eight-time WAC Pitcher of the Week and earned one award as the WAC Hitter of the Week.

Robin Mackin is anxious to help the Huskers both offensively and in the circle this season, after appearing in only two games during her first year with the program in 2009. Mackin broke several Fresno State pitching records in her two-year career with the Bulldogs in 2006 and 2007, when she was an All-American on the field and in the classroom. She missed the 2008 season while training with Team Canada for the Olympics, and her first season in Lincoln lasted little more than a month, as she underwent season-ending shoulder surgery in early March. With nearly a full year to recover and rehab, Mackin has worked her way back to health. She could be a difference maker for the Huskers, as she is the most experienced and decorated pitcher on the roster, while she also owns the best offensive marks of any Husker. Mackin owns a 64-25 career record with a 1.44 ERA and 772 strikeouts in 586.2 innings, including 2.0 shutout innings at Nebraska last season. Offensively, Mackin’s .279 career average is the best mark of any Husker with at least 15 career at bats, while her career totals of 13 doubles, eight home runs and 60 RBIs are also tops among Nebraska’s 2010 roster.

redshirt season [2009]

Mackin fought an injury in her first season at Nebraska that ultimately forced her to miss the final three months of the year. Mackin appeared in only two games, including just one appearance in the circle. She pitched 2.0 innings of hitless relief against Penn State on Feb. 29, working around five walks to hold the Nittany Lions scoreless. After that game, Mackin opted for season-ending shoulder surgery. Last summer, Mackin was awarded a medical hardship for the 2008-09 season. Offensively, Mackin started one game at designated player and earned one pinch-hit at bat. She finished the year 0-for-3 and was also hit by one pitch in a fourth plate appearance.

high school

Mackin and Newmarket High School went undefeated in her four years and won four consecutive York Region championships. She went undefeated in the circle, allowing just one hit and posting a 0.00 ERA. Mackin also captained her hockey team while playing basketball and flag football. She was invited to the Top 40 Women’s Baseball national team and was a two-time national champion and three-time silver medalist in summer ball. A two-time MVP of the national tournament, Mackin was also named the two-time Pitcher of Ontario.

olympic season [2008]

Mackin and Canadian teammate Danielle Lawrie (Washington) were the only two current Division I pitchers selected to a 2008 Olympic roster. Mackin made three appearances in Beijing while helping fourth-place Canada to its best-ever finish. She posted Canada’s second-best ERA at 2.10 in 6.1 innings, allowing just one earned run while striking out three in 4.1 innings against gold medalist Japan. Mackin also allowed one run on one hit in two innings against Chinese Taipei, and surrendered one hit in recording the final out against Team USA.

junior l outfielder l 5-9 corona, calif. l corona hs

After spending her first two seasons working exclusively at pitcher, Tori Tyson is making the switch to the outfield this season. Along with the position switch, Tyson is also focusing on hitting after entering the program as a slapper. Tyson will have the opportunity to earn time in the outfield as Nebraska returns only two players with outfield experience after losing their entire starting outfield from the last two seasons. Because of her pitching duties, Tyson has appeared in only three games in a non-pitching role, twice as a pinch-runner when she scored one run and once as a pinchhitter when she grounded out. Although there will certainly be an adjustment period as she works on becoming an offensive threat, Tyson will have the benefit of focusing on offense full-time for the first time in her life. Abilities with the bat also run in Tyson’s family, as her older sister Dena was an All-American first baseman at Washington, while her father Marty is a widelyregarded hitting instructor as head coach of the Corona Angels travel team.

Offensively, Tyson received her only at bat of the season against California and grounded out. She also pinch ran against Missouri and scored her first career run.

Tyson was the lone Husker pitching recruit in her class and came to Nebraska from Corona High School and the Corona Angels 18-and-under gold team. Tyson benefitted from facing top-level talent year-round in Southern California. At Corona High School, Tyson earned second-team All-Mountain View league honors as a senior in 2007. As a junior, she led the league and ranked in the top 25 among inland Southern California schools with a 1.71 ERA . She finished that season allowing just 36 earned runs in 147.0 innings, while limiting opposing hitters to a meager .218 average and posting 108 strikeouts. She also contributed as a sophomore to Corona’s league championship team. Tyson played her club ball for the Corona Angels, one of the top travel teams in the nation that has produced more than 20 current Division I players. She was joined on the Angels’ squad by fellow Husker juniors Julie Brechtel and Crystal Gonzalez. With the Angels, Tyson was coached by her father, Marty. The Angels won the 2003 14-and-under ASA national championship and recorded three other top-five finishes at nationals.

sophomore season [2009]

With the return of the entire 2008 pitching staff, including a healthy Molly Hill, and the addition of freshman right-hander Ashley Hagemann, Tori Tyson saw limited action in the circle during her sophomore season. Tyson appeared in five games, compiling a 2-0 record and a 2.39 ERA. In 14.2 innings, Tyson allowed only five earned runs. She threw the second complete game of her career against South Dakota and was just one out away from polishing off her first career shutout. Tyson enjoyed some of the best outings of her career down the stretch of the season, as she allowed only two earned runs over her final 10.2 innings, including an appearance in the NCAA Tournament. She finished the year with five strikeouts, matching her total from her freshman season in 9.2 fewer innings. Tyson was perfect in seven defensive chances from the circle, and she also made one appearance offensively as a pinch runner.

Tori is a communication studies major.

freshman season [2008]

Tyson was thrown into the fire early as a freshman due to an injury to ace Molly Hill. Although she threw a total of just 24.1 innings in 2008, Tyson made 12 appearances and five starts, including eight against ranked teams and nine against NCAA Tournament squads. With Hill missing the first month of the season, Tyson started four of the Huskers’ first six games, including two consecutive starts against top-10 foes in the opening weekend. Tyson finished 1-3 in her first four starts, but her losses came at No. 5 Arizona State (second career start) to sixth-ranked Northwestern (third start) and at Louisville (fourth start). Arizona State went on to win the national title, while Northwestern advanced to NCAA Super Regional play and Louisville advanced to an NCAA Regional. After making her debut in a relief appearance against California, Tyson earned her first start against Idaho State later on opening day. She tossed 4.0 innings and allowed three runs against the Bengals to pick up the victory, becoming the fourth straight Husker hurler to win her first career start. The next day she gave Nebraska a chance to win in a two-run loss against No. 6 Northwestern, allowing only three earned runs in five innings against a Wildcat squad that was averaging 10.0 runs per contest entering the game. 44

Jamie Gay proved too talented to keep on the bench last season, as she cracked the starting lineup late in the year and went on to appear in 33 games, including 15 starts. Gay started 11 of the final 15 games at third base in 2009, and she is expected to compete for playing time not only at third base this season, but also at first. Gay earned the most at bats of any freshman last season and generally made the most of her opportunities. Although she finished with a .196 batting average, four of Gay’s 10 hits went for extra-bases, including three doubles and one home run. She was the only freshman to record an extra-base hit in 2009, while she added 10 runs scored and five RBIs, including five runs and three RBIs during the Big 12 Conference season. Defensively, Gay worked at first base during the fall season and her learning curve at the position is expected to be quick. At third base last season, Gay committed only four errors while posting a .943 fielding percentage. In Big 12 play, Gay earned nine starts at third and was perfect in 44 chances.

when she hit her first career home run - a three-run shot that marked her first career multiRBI game. During Big 12 play, Gay picked up five of her 10 hits on the season, two of her three doubles, her only home run and walk, and three of her five RBIs. In the postseason, Gay pinch hit and drove in the Huskers’ lone run in an NCAA Tournament loss at No. 18 Tennessee. The RBI highlighted Gay’s success in her rookie year against ranked teams, as she hit .313 (5-for-16) with a pair of doubles, four runs scored and an RBI against top-25 opponents. She was also perfect defensively in 25 chances against ranked foes.

As a senior, Gay batted .495 with 16 doubles, two home runs and 30 RBIs. She set Beatrice records for average, hits and doubles and ranked second in Class B in hits and doubles, fifth in average and sixth in RBIs. Gay helped lead Beatrice to a runner-up finish at the state tournament, where the Lady Orange lost to four-time state champion Elkhorn, led by fellow Husker sophomores Ashley Hagemann and Nikki Haget. In the championship game, Gay gave Beatrice an early lead by hitting a first-inning home run off Hagemann. In her junior season, Gay was a second-team Super-State selection while batting .444. She was also a standout on the tennis court, as she went 19-1 with her lone loss coming in the state finals of the Class B No. 1 doubles tournament. Gay was Beatrice’s No. 1 singles player as a freshman, sophomore and junior. She went 24-5 and advanced to the quarterfinals of the state tournament as a junior following a 30-7 mark with a fourth-place state finish as a sophomore. Gay also advanced to the second round of the Class B state tournament as a freshman.

freshman season [2009]

Gay saw the most action of any of the Husker freshman position players in 2009, as she appeared in 33 games and earned 15 starts. Gay emerged over the latter half of the season, as she started 12 of the final 15 games, including 11 at third base and one as the designated player. Gay finished her freshman season with a .196 average, but four of her 10 hits went for extra-bases. She recorded three doubles and one home run to post a .314 slugging percentage. Gay also drove in five runs, while scoring 10 times. Defensively, Gay posted a .943 fielding percentage, but in the Big 12 season, Gay earned nine starts at third base and was perfect in 44 chances. Gay was hit by a pitch in the first plate appearance of her career on the first day of the season, but she didn’t earn her first official at bat until a month later. She scored her first run as a pinch-runner against UNLV in the second weekend of the season. Gay picked up her first career hit - a double- in a pinch-hitting role against North Dakota. She then earned her first career start in the next game, going 0-for-4 but recorded three putouts and six assists without an error in the infield. Gay saw limited action again until making mid-week starts against South Dakota and South Dakota State in mid-March. She went 0-for-3 but scored a run against the Coyotes before finishing 1-for-2 with a run scored and her first career RBI against the Jackrabbits. Gay made a statement in her Big 12 debut, picking up her first career multi-hit game with a 2-for-3 effort that included a double and scoring the game-winning run against a ranked Texas squad. She then helped NU secure a sweep in the series with a 1-for-2 effort with a walk and a run scored in game two. Gay kept rolling in the next game at Iowa State,

She recorded NU’s first walk, hit and RBI of the year against California in the season opener, then added NU’s first extra-base hit the same day against Idaho State. She hit safely in the first four games of the NFCA Leadoff Classic, adding a pair of doubles, three RBIs and the first three runs scored of her career. Guile enjoyed a breakout performance in seven games in Las Vegas, finishing with a .444 average (8-for-15) in the desert with five RBIs and a .600 on-base percentage. She recorded her first three multi-hit games in Las Vegas and also drove in a career-high three RBIs against Southern Utah. Guile burst onto the scene in Big 12 play, recording three of NU’s six hits in a two-game series at Texas in the opening weekend of conference play. She hit safely in both games as part of a career-best six-game hitting streak where she went 9-for-19 with four RBIs. Later in the league slate, she hit her first career home run, a game-tying, seventh-inning solo shot against Kansas. Defensively, Guile committed only two errors in 180 chances, including only one at catcher.

career Honors & Awards » 2008 Big 12 Commissioner’s Spring Honor Roll Ashley Guile (pronounced GUY-ole) will be welcomed back to the Nebraska lineup in 2010 after redshirting last year following offseason elbow surgery. Guile was the Huskers’ top freshman hitter in 2008, as her bat earned her starts at catcher, third base, first base and designated player as a rookie. This season, Guile is the top candidate to win the starting catching job. She started 25 games behind the plate in 2008 after Amanda Duran was lost for the season with a broken hand. With Duran and her All-Big 12 numbers lost to graduation, Guile will be counted on to not only solidify the catcher position, but also to help replace some of the Huskers’ lost offensive production. One of three Olathe East High School products to sign with Nebraska the last decade, Guile spent all of her freshman season batting in the middle of the Husker lineup, and she is expected to resume that role this season. She hit .250 as a freshman with six doubles, a homer and 18 RBIs. Her disciplined plate approach helped her post a .383 onbase percentage, as she coaxed 25 walks, the most by a Husker freshman in 12 years.

before nebraska

Guile is the third Olathe East player to sign with Nebraska since the 2003 season. She was a four-time state champion at Olathe East and was named a 2006 first-team high school All-American by the NFCA along with Husker senior Alex Hupp, also an East graduate. Guile was a repeat selection as a first-team All-American in 2007. As a sophomore, Guile’s .624 on-base percentage in 2005 was an Olathe East record, a notable accomplishment for a program that has produced more than a dozen Division I players. She also boasts two of the top four season averages in school history, the top on-base percentage (.624 in 2005), the fourth-best slugging percentage (.864 in 2006), second-most RBIs (35 in 2006), third-most hits (45 in 2006), second-most doubles (14 in 2006 and 2007) and fourth-most triples (4 in 2006 and 2007). Guile enjoyed an outstanding junior season in 2006, hitting .556 with 14 doubles, 35 RBIs, a .556 on-base percentage and an .864 slugging percentage. As a senior, she hit .507 with 14 doubles, four triples, 30 RBIs and an .826 slugging percentage while striking out just once in 69 at bats.

redshirt season [2009]

Guile was expected to be a major contributor for Nebraska in 2009, but never saw the field. Guile was slowed early in the season while recovering from offseason elbow surgery on her throwing arm, and she elected to sit out the season as a redshirt. Although the injury limited her ability to work on certain aspects of her game, Guile focused on her conditioning and fitness levels and got into the best shape of her career.

freshman season [2008]

Guile immediately stepped into the middle of the Husker order, while earning starts at catcher (25 games), third base (3 games), first base (1 game) and designated player (21 games). She started the first 36 games before a concussion sidelined her in the middle of April and caused her to miss her only three games of the year. Guile led the team with 25 walks, the most by a Husker freshman since three-time All-American Jennifer Lizama walked 26 times in 1997. Guile’s .383 on-base percentage ranked third on the team and was first among non-slappers. She drew more walks (25) than strikeouts (22) and was the only Husker to accomplish that feat. In clutch situations, she hit .294 with two outs while producing six RBIs. Guile finished the year with seven multi-hit games and three multi-RBI contests.

Hagemann won again a week later with a two-hitter against South Dakota State that marked the first shutout of her career. During the Big 12 slate, Hagemann was 0-2 with a 3.36 ERA, but she allowed only three hits and struck out seven in 8.1 innings, as conference opponents hit only .107 against her. Hagemann’s final two outings came in the NCAA Tournament, when she allowed two runs on four hits in 4.2 innings against ranked opponents Tennessee and Jacksonville State. On the season, Hagemann allowed only 10 hits and struck out 15 in 13.2 innings against ranked foes.

In the circle, Hagemann will work with Robin Mackin in a primary two-pitcher rotation for Nebraska. Hagemann was dominant at times last season, as she posted the second-best strikeoutsper-seven innings total and opponent batting average in the Big 12. She was hurt by the long ball though, as 20 of the 31 runs she allowed came directly off home runs. But after an offseason of development and maturity, Hagemann could be poised to limit those big hits and produce a breakout season. Offensively, Hagemann earned only 14 at bats as a freshman, but she is expected to contribute more this season. Hagemann batted .286 in 2009 with a .333 on-base percentage. During the fall season, Hagemann hit .462 with a .769 slugging percentage and three RBIs.

Hagemann set Nebraska Class B career records with 1,088 strikeouts, 86 victories, 67 shutouts, 14 consecutive shutouts, 170.0 consecutive shutout innings and 17 no-hitters. She owns the Class B season records with nine no-hitters as a senior, while ranking eighth in ERA with a 0.34 mark as a junior and ninth with a 0.38 ERA as a senior. Hagemann also struck out 20 batters to set the Class B record for strikeouts in a seven-inning game, while offensively, Hagemann’s 50 RBIs during her junior season are a Nebraska high school record, regardless of class. In her senior season, Hagemann led Elkhorn to a Class B state record 30-1 finish. Hagemann went 25-1 with a 0.38 ERA as a senior and posted 346 strikeouts in 163.2 innings. Her ERA was the lowest in the state, while her 25 wins and 346 strikeouts both ranked second in the state. At the plate, Hagemann hit .536 (37-for-69), with 10 doubles, six home runs and 37 RBIs.

Hagemann posted a 6-4 record with a 3.07 ERA in 2009. She showed her potential by tossing one shutout, while posting two double-digit strikeout games and throwing a pair of one-hitters in only 12 starts. Opponents hit just .189 against her, as Hagemann posted the second-lowest opponent batting average of any pitcher in the Big 12 Conference.

career Honors & Awards » Two-Time Big 12 Commissioner’s Honor Roll Selection Nikki Haget did not earn an at bat or see the field defensively as a freshman in 2009, but the sophomore is still expected to be among the top contenders to win a starting outfield spot in 2010.

One of two Elkhorn High School graduates among the Husker sophomore class, Haget began her freshman season working in the infield. Knowing Nebraska would lose its entire starting outfield after the season, Haget began working in the outfield midway through the year in the hopes of earning a starting job as a sophomore. Although competition is expected to be fierce in the outfield – and Head Coach Rhonda Revelle may even use a rotation early in the season – Haget started six games in center field during the Huskers’ eight-game fall season. She was perfect defensively in four chances, while hitting .286 with six runs scored and a team-best five RBIs. One of only two slap-hitters on the roster, Haget’s speed and small-ball approach could be a nice addition to the top or bottom of the Husker lineup.

Megan Southworth is the lone in-state player among this year’s freshman class. One of three catchers on the 2010 roster, Southworth will work her way into the catching rotation, but her offensive potential could lead to additional playing time in the outfield.

Brooke Thomason will be slowed early in her freshman season as she recovers from offseason foot surgery. Once healthy, Thomason is a strong candidate to earn a starting spot in a crowded, but inexperienced Husker outfield. A standout for Blue Valley Northwest High School, Thomason was a .498 career hitter in high school, breaking the Huskies’ previous career mark of .496 held by 2000 Olympic Gold Medalist Christie Ambrosi.

Future Huskers

twin sisters tatum & taylor edwards sign letter of intent with nebraska

Talented twin sisters Tatum and Taylor Edwards each signed a National Letter of Intent to play softball at Nebraska beginning in 2010-11, Head Coach Rhonda Revelle announced during the 2009 fall signing period. The twins are battery mates, as Taylor is a catcher and Tatum is a pitcher and outfielder. The sisters are among the best recruits to ever sign with the Huskers, as each has been a three-time all-state selection entering their senior seasons in 2010 at Vista Murrieta High School in Murrieta, Calif. “We are extremely excited about what the Edwards twins bring to our program,” Revelle said. “They are competitive, spirited and they have winning in their blood. Tatum and Taylor will be outstanding additions to the Nebraska softball program.” Playing in a talent-rich Southern California area that annually produces hundreds of Division I softball players, the twins have still managed to separate themselves from their talented peers. Tatum was selected as the California Freshman of the Year in 2007 by CalHiSports.com, while the site named Taylor the California Junior of the Year in 2009. A two-time Under Armour All-American, Taylor was also honored as the EA Sports National Junior of the Year last spring while being named a first-team EA Sports All-American. Through three seasons at Vista Murrieta, the twins have put up impressive numbers. Tatum boasts a career record of 41-11 in the circle with a 1.10 ERA. Offensively, Tatum is a career .363 hitter with 26 home runs, 21 doubles and 103 RBIs. Taylor has batted at least .500 in each of her first three prep seasons. She boasts a .539 career average with 29 home runs, 25 doubles, 107 RBIs and a .985 slugging percentage. Last spring, the Edwards twins combined to slug 24 home runs - a total that was more than 301 of the 309 schools in the southern section produced as a team, according to

reported statistics from MaxPreps.com. Behind the Edwards twins, Vista Murrieta was the top-ranked team in its division for most of the season. The Broncos earned the top seed for the CIF Southern Section Division II playoffs before finishing as the runner-up. Vista Murrieta finished with a 27-5 record, won its second straight Southwestern League title the first two championships in school history - and finished with a No. 9 overall ranking in the state of California according to CalHiSports.com. In the summer, the twins play their travel ball for Marty Tyson and the Corona Angels. The twins will join three Angels teammates on the Husker roster next season in Julie Brechtel, Crystal Gonzalez and Tori Tyson. At the 2008 ASA Gold National Tournament in Oklahoma City, the twins helped lead the Angels to a national runner-up finish, the Angels’ best-ever finish at the 18-and-under national tournament. The twins were also part of Angel teams that recorded second-place finishes at the 2007 14-and-under national tournament and the 2005 12-and-under national tournament, along with a third-place showing at the 2006 14-and-under national tournament. Both Tatum and Taylor were also invited to the 2007 adidas Futures Top 100 camp. With their talent and experience, Revelle expects both players to make a major contribution when they arrive on campus. “Each of them has the ability to come in and have an immediate and significant impact on the success of our program,” Revelle said. “They both can change the game with one swing of the bat. Defensively, Tatum can shut down an offense from the circle, while Taylor can shut down the speediest of base stealers. We are ecstatic that they have chosen the University of Nebraska.”

When Nebraska began its search for a head coach following the 1992 season, the program was in need of an enthusiastic, high-character individual who would return the Husker softball program to its perch among the sport’s elite. NU found that person in Rhonda Revelle, who returned to her alma mater in 1993 on a mission to build on Nebraska’s illustrious past and re-establish the Huskers as a national power. Consider it mission accomplished. The numbers speak for themselves: 650 victories; 15 All-Americans; 14 NCAA Tournament appearances; 12 top-25 national finishes; 10 Academic All-Americans; six Big 12 titles; six coach-of-the-year accolades; four Olympians; three 50-win seasons; and two Women’s College World Series berths. These are elite numbers putting Revelle into an elite group of collegiate coaches. The National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) agreed in December of 2009, when it selected Revelle for induction into the NFCA Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame has been in existence for nearly 20 years, but has only selected 53 coaches for enshrinement. With Revelle's individual legacy even further enhanced, she is now determined to continue raising the bar for one of the nation’s elite programs. The Huskers were voted the 12th-best program of all-time by the NFCA in 2003 and Nebraska was recognized as the 10th-winningest NCAA program ever by CBS College Sports in 2007. Under Revelle's guidance, Nebraska became only the 10th program ever to win 1,000 NCAA games in 2009. In charge of a rising, nationally recognized top-10 program, Revelle is anxious to return NU to the World Series, where the Huskers’ seven all-time appearances rank seventh in NCAA history. Entering her 18th season in 2010, Revelle owns nearly every Nebraska coaching record. With a Nebraska career record of 650-342, Revelle is the winningest and longest-serving head coach in Husker history. It took her just three seasons to lead NU to the then-winningest season in school history and a first NCAA Tournament berth in seven years, but Revelle’s connection with Husker softball goes back much further. Revelle has not only added to Nebraska’s legacy as one of the nation’s elite programs, she helped build that legacy as a player for the Big Red from 1982 to 1984. Originally from Eugene, Ore., Revelle’s first tour of Lincoln helped establish Nebraska as an elite program. She helped lead the Huskers to an appearance in the first-ever NCAA Women’s College World Series in 1982, and on the strength of that early success, the Huskers returned to the World Series two seasons later, finishing third in 1984 after Revelle had graduated. Future Husker teams built upon the solid foundation Revelle helped lay, and Nebraska quickly emerged as a national power on the diamond, finishing as the national runner-up at the 1985 World Series before finishing third in 1987 and fifth in 1988. After advancing to five of the first seven World Series ever contested, Nebraska fell on hard times in the early 1990s. Back-to-back losing seasons in 1991 and 1992 prompted a coaching change that brought Revelle back to Nebraska as the Huskers’ head coach. Barely a decade removed from helping Nebraska emerge into a dominant program as a player, Revelle spent the 1993 and 1994 seasons once again laying the foundation for the Huskers’ return to national prominence. Nebraska’s re-emergence onto the national scene began to take shape in Revelle’s third season, when she was named the 1995 Big Eight Conference and NFCA Midwest Region Coach of the Year. The honor came after Revelle guided Nebraska to a then-school-record 43 victories and a final No. 18 ranking in the inaugural USA Today/NFCA Coaches poll. With Revelle at the helm, the Huskers have become a mainstay in the national rankings, as Revelle guided NU to a spot among the nation’s top 25 in each of the first 12 years the poll existed. Nebraska was one of only six schools around the country to be ranked among the nation’s best in every final poll during that stretch. Revelle posted another 40-win season in 1996 before the program really began to take off. In 1998, Nebraska’s return to national prominence was complete as the Huskers’ enjoyed their first championship season in a decade. That season, the Huskers won a school-record 80 percent of their games while 56


returning to the Women’s College World Series for the first time since 1988. Revelle picked up Big 12 Conference Coach-of-the-Year honors after Nebraska swept through the league with a perfect 20-0 record en route to capturing the conference regular-season and tournament titles. To this day, the Huskers are the only team in the 14-year history of the Big 12 to ever put together a perfect regular season. The 1998 season was the beginning of one of the most successful decades in program history. From 1998 to 2007, Revelle led her team to the NCAA Tournament every season and the Huskers were nationally ranked nine times in those 10 seasons, including seven seasons ranked in the top 15. During that decade, Nebraska won more than 70 percent of its games, averaging more than 43 wins per season while the NCAA selected the Huskers to host five NCAA Regionals. Revelle's teams also won six Big 12 titles in that 10-year span and added five more runner-up finishes while totaling nine All-Americans and six academic All-Americans. Following the record-breaking 1998 season, Nebraska nearly made a return to the World Series before falling one win short the next season. The Huskers finished 35-21 in 1999 but caught fire in the postseason, finishing as the runner-up at the Big 12 Tournament before winning four games in the NCAA Tournament. The Huskers split the first two games with Arizona State before losing a 4-2 decision in the championship game with a trip to the World Series at stake. Revelle then put together three consecutive 50-win seasons from 2000 to 2002, marking the only three 50-win seasons in school history. The streak started with a school-record 52 wins in 2000 and ended with a fifth-place finish at the 2002 Women's College World Series. In 2000, Nebraska finished second in the regular-season Big 12 standings before winning the Big 12 Tournament. During the conference season, Nebraska twice defeated Oklahoma, a notable accomplishment since the Sooners went on to win the national championship while finishing with a 66-8 record. Nebraska made a regional final for the fourth straight year in 2000 but fell short of another World Series appearance. The next season, Nebraska swept through the Big 12 Conference, finishing 16-2 to win the regular-season title. Revelle led the Huskers to a then-school record 18 straight victories, but Nebraska again came up short in the postseason while finishing with a No. 14 final ranking for the second straight season. The Huskers would not come up short again in 2002. Revelle's team quickly established itself as a national title threat, as the Huskers posted a school-record 23-game winning streak while beginning the season with a remarkable 34-6 record. During the hot streak, Revelle's Huskers spent six consecutive weeks ranked fourth in the polls. Nebraska then swept through NCAA Regional play to advance to the Women's College World Series. The Huskers' dropped a 1-0 heartbreaker to Arizona in the opener before rebounding with a 1-0 win over Michigan. NU was then eliminated with a fifth-place finish following a 4-3 loss to Florida State. The 2003 season once again saw Nebraska rise to new heights. The Huskers opened the season ranked in the preseason top five for the first time in school history. Revelle's team quickly ascended to the No. 3 spot in the poll, spending three consecutive weeks in the highest spot a Revelle-coached team has ever achieved. Nebraska was close to another trip to the World Series, but each of the Huskers' final 13 losses on the season were by two runs or less and Nebraska had to settle for a No. 13 final ranking and a loss in the NCAA Regional semifinals at Bowlin Stadium. Revelle's Huskers would again be selected as an NCAA Regional host in 2004 and 2005. The 2004 Huskers swept the Big 12 Conference regular-season and tournament titles but received a tough draw when the NCAA Tournament pairings were released. Narrowly missing out on a national seed in the final season of eight-team regionals, Nebraska was unable to get by a tough California squad in the regional finals, as the Huskers ended their season with a 45-17 record and a No. 14 ranking, while the Bears went on to finish as the national runner-up. Nebraska fell victim to a tough schedule in 2005, as Revelle's team finished just 36-23 but the Huskers were still highly regarded enough to earn the No. 25 spot in the final poll. Nebraska was selected to host an NCAA Regional, but the Huskers were eliminated with a pair of one-run losses after winning their opener. Revelle's Huskers rebounded with a stellar 2006 season in what may have been one of Revelle's best coaching efforts. Nebraska did not feature an All-American in 2006, but that didn't stop the Huskers from finishing 44-12 and posting the program's third-best singleseason winning percentage. Revelle's Huskers came together as a team to finish as the Big 12 regular-season runner-up while advancing to a ninth consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance and finishing the season ranked 14th in the final poll. The 2007 Huskers featured one of the top pitching staffs in school history, as Nebraska finished ninth nationally in ERA. NU finished with a 37-20 record and was selected to host a fourth NCAA Regional at Bowlin Stadium in the span of five seasons. After a disappointing finish in 2007, Revelle was faced with a challenging outlook the next season. The 2008 Huskers were the youngest group in school history with no seniors for the first time ever and 12 players with one season or less of collegiate experience. The youth, combined with a flurry of injuries led to a 25-28 finish that marked Nebraska's first losing season since 1994, Revelle's second season as Husker head coach. 57

Tabbed as a preseason dark horse to advance to the World Series by ESPN.com, Nebraska began to pull together late in the season, as the Huskers nearly made a run to the Big 12 title. The Huskers advanced to the Big 12 postseason title game by winning three straight games, including an upset of No. 7 Oklahoma. Needing a victory to earn an automatic berth to a 14th straight NCAA Tournament, Nebraska fell to eventual national runner-up Texas A&M. Speaking of success in the conference tournament, the Huskers have been a force in postseason play, advancing to the Big 12 Championship game seven times in the tournament’s 14-year history. Overall, Revelle’s Husker squads have recorded a regular-season or postseason championship or runner-up finish 13 times in the league’s 14-year history. The Huskers made it back to the postseason in 2009, finishing 35-19 and earning a trip to the Knoxville (Tenn.) Regional. Nebraska posted a 10-game improvement in the win column from 2008 to 2009 while finishing fifth in a tough Big 12 Conference that sent seven teams to the NCAA Tournament. Revelle picked up her 650th win at Nebraska in the Huskers' win in the first game of the NCAA Tournament, while four of her players earned All-Big 12 accolades, seven earned academic All-Big 12 honors and Molly Hill earned a repeat selection as a CoSIDA Academic All-American. In addition to success on the field, the Huskers have seen a dramatic increase in fan support under Revelle. NU has called Bowlin Stadium home since 2002, and the Huskers have finished in the top 10 nationally in average attendance in six of the seven seasons since the stadium opened. The 2004 Huskers attracted a school-record 19,103 fans and led the nation with an average increase of 340 fans per game, while finishing third in total attendance and fourth in average attendance (955). Media exposure for the program has also seen a dramatic rise, as Revelle has continued to build Nebraska softball into one of the premier programs in the nation. The Huskers are regulars on national television, appearing on ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, Fox Sports Net and CBS College Sports Television in the last five seasons. Nebraska also has every home game broadcast live on Huskers.com or the Husker Sports Network, as well as select road games and the entire Big 12 and NCAA tournaments. Revelle has also emerged as a leader in the realm of women’s athletics at Nebraska and beyond. She is the winningest female coach across all sports in Nebraska history, while she is the only Big 12 coach who has also served in an administrator role, as she was Nebraska’s Senior Woman Administrator for more than two years. Revelle also worked diligently to establish the first fully endowed scholarship for a female student-athlete at Nebraska and the Husker softball program now boasts two fully endowed scholarships. She has been an active member of the softball community on the national and regional levels. The 2007 recipient of the Dr. Barbara Hibner Trailblazer award, Revelle has served on numerous NFCA committees and is a two-time president of the organization. Off the field, Revelle is an active member of the Lincoln community, as she was named the 2003 Downtown YMCA Co-Volunteer of the Year and has served as chairperson for several charitable campaigns, including the UNL United Way Combined Campaign, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Light the Night campaign, the Downtown YMCA Strong Kids campaign, the YMCA Cycle-a-Thon for Strong Kids campaign and the Lincoln Youth Council "Let ‘Em Play" campaign. Under Revelle, the 2005 United Way Combined Campaign raised its highest dollar amount ever. A former Nebraska pitcher from 1981 to 1983, Revelle was a member of the 1982 team that made the school’s first-ever appearance in the WCWS and won its first-ever Big Eight

She served as the pitching coach, recruiting coordinator and camps and clinics director. Before taking the position at San Jose State, Revelle spent one year as an assistant coach at Cal State-Hayward and two seasons - including her only other stint as head coach - at Nebraska Wesleyan. During the spring of 1997, Revelle and associate head coach Lori Sippel were honored for their efforts in coaching, playing and promoting softball in Nebraska by being inducted into the Nebraska Softball Hall of Fame.

CoSIDA ACADEMIC ALL-AMERICANS

Coach Revelle has done her part to add to NU's nation-leading total of 26 CoSIDA Academic All-Americans. She has had 10 players earn academic All-America honors in her 17 seasons, a total that ranks third nationally during that span among all active Division I coaches. FRESNO STATE

UCLA

Q: What do you enjoy most about coaching at Nebraska? A: The sense of tradition, pride and community. From the players right on through to the fans, it is one big TEAM effort. As a coach, there is a tremendous responsibility to ensure that “the pride of Nebraska” stays intact. Q: What is your coaching philosophy? A: Our coaching philosophy is that we are a team-first program. From the administrators, support staff and coaches to the players and fans, we believe that love is the greatest source of motivation. By that, I mean love for the game, love for one another and the will to do the hard work it takes to be a champion.

2008 OLYMPIANS

Among active Division I coaches, only Arizona and Team USA Head Coach Mike Candrea and Fresno State Head Coach Margie Wright had more current or former players selected to a 2008 Olympic roster. Coach Revelle was one of only five active coaches to have more than one pupil participate in the Beijing Olympics.

Q: You've restored NU to the upper echelon of collegiate softball. What have been the keys to your success? A: The quality of student-athletes has been the single greatest reason for our success. Their work ethic, talent and willingness to put the team first have been the cornerstone of this program's emergence. I have also been blessed to have what I consider the best staff any head coach could ask or wish for. Without them, we would not be where we are. We do not care who gets the credit. We just care that the job gets done and gets done with the highest standard.

Associate Head Coach Lori Sippel is a truly accomplished player and coach. She has extensive experience, including on the international level, where she is one of only 133 worldwide members of the International Softball Federation Hall of Fame. As a head coach, she most recently guided Team Canada to a fourth-place finish at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, China, Canada's best finish ever. Arguably the most dominant pitcher in Nebraska history, Sippel competed for the Huskers from 1985 to 1988, earning All-America honors twice as well as academic All-America honors and a nomination for the prestigious Honda Award. Her success as a player has translated into the coaching field, where she is widely regarded as one of the top pitching coaches in the nation, as well as one of the top international coaches as the head coach of Team Canada. Sippel has developed three All-America pitchers at Nebraska, including Peaches James in 2004. Jenny Voss (1998) and Leigh Ann Walker (2000) have also earned All-America honors under Sippel's tutelage. Sippel will be working with another All-American in 2010 in Robin Mackin. Mackin was a third-team NFCA All-American in 2007 at Fresno State, but will have the opportunity to work extensively with Sippel for the first time in 2010, as she missed nearly all of the 2009 season - her first in Lincoln - after undergoing shoulder surgery. Over the past 10 seasons, the Husker pitching staff has compiled at least 350 strikeouts eight times, while posting eight of the top nine single-season marks in school history. NU broke the single-season record in 2001 when the staff tossed 502 strikeouts. Also in 2001, Walker increased her career total to 858 strikeouts, breaking Sippel's 13-year-old NU record of 838. In 2004, James topped that mark, finishing her career with a remarkable 947 punch outs, including a school-record 394 strikeouts in 2004. Another of Sippel's prized pupils, Ashley DeBuhr fell just short of breaking James' record in 2007, finishing a stellar career with 936 strikeouts while averaging the most strikeouts per seven innings of any pitcher in school history. In 2009, Molly Hill finished her career with more than 700 strikeouts, becoming only the sixth Husker pitcher to reach the plateau. Five of the other six were coached by Sippel, while the sixth is Sippel herself, who struck out a then-school-record 838 batters in her illustrious career. Under Sippel's instruction, James improved each season and became one of the top pitchers in the nation. James was drafted by the Texas Thunder of the National Pro Fastpitch League, where she was an all-star and finished with a 13-3 record and a 0.88 ERA in 2004, shortly after completing her Husker career. In 2005, DeBuhr became just the second player in school history to record 300 strikeouts in a season when she struck out a Nebraska sophomore-record 335 batters. Under Sippel's tutelage, DeBuhr showed remarkable improvement from her freshman campaign where she threw only 36.2 innings to earn secondteam All-Big 12 honors in 2005. A year later, DeBuhr continued to flourish, as she struck out 304 batters to become the only player in school history to record 300 strikeouts in more than one season. DeBuhr finished the season with a 26-10 record and a 1.50 ERA while tossing 12 shutouts in 32 starts. DeBuhr was not the only Husker hurler to benefit from Sippel's expertise in 2006. Hill also excelled and posted a record of 18-2 to set the school record with a .900 winning percentage as a freshman. Under Sippel's instruction, Hill was able to contribute immediately at the Division I level after pitching in the smallest class of high school softball in Nebraska. The Huskers boasted one of the top staffs in the country in 2006, finishing with a team ERA of 1.65, 17 shutouts and 476 strikeouts, the second-highest total in school history. Sippel helped DeBuhr rank 22nd in the nation in strikeouts per seven innings (9.3), 23rd in wins (26) and 44th in ERA (1.50). As a staff, NU ranked ninth in winning percentage and 20th in ERA. With Sippel's help, the staff topped nearly all of those totals in 2007, while finishing ninth in the nation in ERA. Hill showed dramatic improvement, finishing as just the third underclassman in Big 12 history to post the league's lowest ERA while finishing seventh in the nation with a 1.05 ERA. DeBuhr and Hill also combined to rank among the national leaders in every NCAA category. 60


After missing most of the 2008 season while preparing Team Canada for the Beijing Olympics, Sippel helped Nebraska post the second-best staff ERA in the Big 12 in 2009. Hill earned first-team All-Big 12 honors, as she finished fourth in overall ERA, but led the conference in ERA in league-only games. Overall, during the competitive Big 12 season, Sippel's staff allowed nearly one fewer run per game than any other team. Sippel has coached more All-Big 12 selections than any other coach in the Big 12. Since the league was formed in 1996, a conference-high 16 pitchers have earned All-Big 12 status in only 14 years, including a Big 12-best 12 first-team selections. In addition to tutoring the Husker pitchers, Sippel works with all phases of the program, including coaching the outfielders, recruiting, film study and administration. Sippel was recognized for her contributions to the program when she was promoted to associate head coach on Aug. 5, 2002. Sippel had served as an assistant coach for the previous 13 seasons. "Lori is an elite pitching instructor in a category with a select few," NU Head Coach Rhonda Revelle said. "But she is more than a pitching coach. She is a coach in all aspects of this program." A two-time All-American as a player at NU, Sippel holds four NU single-season and five career records. On April 9, 1986, she threw the first seven-inning perfect game in NU history with a 2-0 win over Drake. It stood as the only seven-inning perfect game in Husker history until Peaches James tossed a perfect game against Oklahoma on May 14, 2004, under Sippel's tutelage. As a freshman in 1985, Sippel won Big Eight Tournament MVP honors, as the Huskers claimed their second-ever league title. That season, the Huskers made their third appearance in the WCWS and had a school-best second-place finish. Sippel opened the 1985 Series with a no-hitter against Louisiana Tech and was 2-2 in the NCAA Tournament. In 1987 and 1988, Sippel captained the Huskers to two more College World Series appearances, where Nebraska finished third and fifth, respectively. Sippel claimed two more conference tournament MVP awards. Sippel was a first-team CoSIDA Academic All-American, the GTE Academic All-American Softball Player of the Year and a Honda Award nominee in 1988. On April 30, 1995, Sippel's No. 16 jersey became the first retired by the Nebraska softball program. A 13-year member of the Canadian National Team, Sippel was inducted into the Canadian Softball Hall of Fame in 1993. In 1994 she helped the Canadians qualify for the 1996 Olympics with a fourth-place finish at the World Tournament, and in 1990 she was on the team that finished sixth at the World Tournament. Sippel played for Canada in the 1996 Summer Olympic Games in Columbus, Ga., in softball's debut as an Olympic sport. She helped 3-4 Canada to a fifth-place finish. Sippel was also involved with the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece, and the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia, serving as a color commentator for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's softball telecasts. After hanging up her cleats following the 1996 Olympics, Sippel came out of playing retirement in 1998 to compete for Canada in the World Championships in Japan. Sippel pitched a one-hit shutout and struck out 12 against Italy in the fifth-place game to qualify Canada for its second straight Olympic Games. She again retired from Team Canada in 1999, and her Canadian jersey has since been retired. Sippel then moved into a coaching role with Team Canada and accomplished much with the squad after being named head coach in March of 2005. The Canadians finished second to the United States at the 2005 Pan-American Qualifying Tournament in December 2005 and Sippel guided Team Canada to a 2-1 upset victory of Team USA at the World Cup of Softball on July 19, the Americans' first loss in international play since 2002. In the summer of 2006, Sippel guided the Canadians to an Olympic berth by virtue of a fifth-place finish at the World Championship in Beijing, China. Team Canada also added a second-place finish at the Canada Cup, as well as a third-place finish at the II World Cup of Softball, where Sippel's team defeated traditional power Australia in back-to-back games to earn third place. After leading Team Canada to one win shy of a medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Sippel earned the distinction of participating in the Olympics as both a player and a coach, a remarkable accomplishment considering softball was not added as an Olympic sport until 1996. Sippel's international legacy grew larger in 2005 when she was one of three Canadians selected for induction into the International Softball Federation Hall of Fame. Sippel was formally inducted into the Hall of Fame at the 2006 Canada Cup. In the spring of 1997, Sippel and Revelle were both inducted into the Nebraska Softball Hall of Fame. A true testament to her accomplishments, Sippel is enshrined in the hall of fames of her alma mater, her native country and at the most elite international level. An international guest speaker, Sippel graduated from NU in 1988 with a degree in special education. She returned to her alma mater in 1990, after serving one season as an assistant coach at Kansas.

The Huskers showed great improvement under Miller in 2009. Her instruction had an immediate impact, as the Huskers scored at least 10 runs in each of their first three games in 2009, matching a feat that had been accomplished only one other time in the 34-year storied history of Husker softball. Nebraska went on to set a school record for sacrifice flies (15), hit batters (48), walks per game (3.4) and number of players hitting a home run (10) in Miller's first season, while one individual record was also set in Miller's inaugural year. The Huskers also finished with the third-best on-base percentage (.382) in program history in 2009, while averaging the fifth-most runs per game (5.64) and finishing with the sixth-best batting average (.277). Miller's Colorado State teams were known for their power, and Nebraska showed much-improved power in 2009. The Huskers hit 31 home runs in 2009 after homering only 29 times the previous two seasons combined (14 in 2007 and 15 in 2008). Nebraska hit three home runs in the same inning for

the first time in seven seasons in 2009, while totaling six multi-home run games after combining for only two multi-homer games the previous two seasons combined. A school-record 10 players homered on the season, as no more than nine players had ever homered in one season prior to Miller's arrival. Perhaps more impressively, sophomores Julie Brechtel and Heidi Foland led the team with six home runs each after neither recorded a home run in their freshman season. Overall, seven of Nebraska's nine returning hitters (excluding slappers) recorded career-high home run totals in 2009 and either matched or exceeded their career total entering the year, including three seniors. The Huskers also showed great discipline at the plate, drawing 181 walks in only 53 games to average a school-record 3.4 walks per game. Nebraska posted its first game with at least 10 walks since 2002, while the Huskers had three games with eight-or-more walks, matching the combined total from the previous five seasons combined. It was a balanced effort as seven of the Huskers' 11 returning batters posted a career-high walk total, including senior Meghan Mullin, who coaxed 29 walks in 2009 after walking only 25 times in her first three seasons combined. Mullin tied a school record with four walks in a single game while walking in six straight plate appearances, which is believed to be a school record. Overall, Nebraska had three players draw at least 25 walks in 2009, tying for the highest mark in school history. It was the fourth time a Husker team had three players draw 25 or more walks in the same season, but each of the previous three teams' schedules featured at least 10 more games than the Huskers played in 2009. Combined with a school-record 48 hit batters, Nebraska finished with a .376 on-base percentage in 2009, its highest total in 12 years and the third-highest mark in school history. Three Husker hitters earned All-Big 12 status in Miller's first season, the most at Nebraska in three seasons. Brechtel also earned Nebraska's lone spot on the Big 12 Championship all-tournament team, while picking up the Huskers' only Big 12 Player-of-the-Week award in 2009. Brechtel enjoyed a breakout season under Miller's instruction, batting .313 with 30 runs scored, seven doubles, six homers, 28 RBIs and a .500 slugging percentage in 2009. As a freshman, she hit just .220 with 10 runs scored, four doubles, no homers, 16 RBIs and a .252 slugging percentage. Prior to coming to Lincoln, Miller spent the previous eight seasons as an assistant coach at Colorado State, where she served as the Rams’ hitting coach, recruiting coordinator and camps director, while also instructing the catchers. After a successful stint in Fort Collins where she established herself as one of the country’s premier hitting coaches, Miller has continued each of those duties in Lincoln. "We feel very fortunate to have Diane on the Nebraska softball coaching staff," NU Head Coach Rhonda Revelle said. "Diane has a proven track record as a hitting coach, as her hitters at Colorado State over the last several years ranked among the best in the nation in several offensive categories. She did a tremendous job with our hitters in her first season here, as we showed great improvement and were a much more potent lineup." A native of Greeley, Kan., Miller helped Colorado State’s hitters re-write the CSU and Mountain West Conference record books. A total of 14 school records fell during Miller’s eight seasons. Each of the Rams’ top-five single-season marks for doubles, home runs and slugging percentage were established during Miller’s tenure. Colorado State also claimed four of the top five single-season school marks for batting average, runs scored, hits and RBIs under Miller’s guidance. On the conference level, Colorado State established a total of 44 MWC offensive records while Miller was at the school. Additionally, the Rams led the league in doubles three times, batting average and slugging percentage twice, and hits and total bases once in Miller’s eight seasons. 62


Nationally, CSU featured one of the nation’s most powerful offensive attacks in Miller's final three seasons. Colorado State was the only team in the country to rank in the top 20 nationally in home runs per game, doubles per game and slugging percentage each of the last three years. The Rams also ranked in the top 20 nationally in average three times in her last four seasons, including a pair of top-five finishes. Over the last five years, Colorado State displayed power and a knack for scoring runs that was nearly unmatched in Division I. In the final 2008 NCAA statistical rankings, Miller’s last Colorado State team ranked fourth in Division I in home runs per game (1.33), sixth in doubles per game (1.69), seventh in slugging percentage (.522), ninth in scoring (5.92 runs per game) and 14th in batting average (.313). The Rams ranked among the nation’s top home run-hitting clubs for the fourth time in five seasons in 2008. Miller had previously guided CSU to final home run rankings of fifth in 2007, 11th in 2006 and eighth in 2004, as the Rams slugged at least 53 home runs in each of those seasons. In Miller's last five years, Colorado State averaged more than 55 home runs per season. Prior to Miller’s arrival, no Colorado State team had ever hit more than 25 home runs in a season in 26 years of Ram softball. Colorado State also ranked in the top 20 nationally for doubles in four of her last five seasons, while Miller’s hitters produced the Rams’ eighth highest single-season doubles totals in school history, including a school-record 96 in 2004. Miller's last five teams averaged nearly 85 doubles per season, while prior to her arrival, no Colorado State team had ever recorded 70 doubles in a season. The powerful production led the Rams to average more than five runs per game over the past five seasons. The offense produced at least 220 runs in each of the past five years while producing four seasons with more than 265 runs, including 302 runs scored in only 51 games in 2008. Individuals have also seen great success under Miller’s guidance. Lauren Cusick ended her stellar career by earning her fourth all-conference honor in 2008. As a senior, Cusick hit .393 with 15 doubles, 20 home runs, 42 RBIs, 61 runs scored and an .863 slugging percentage. Cusick is one of 12 Rams who broke a Mountain West Conference offensive record during Miller’s eight seasons in Fort Collins. Cusick, a 2008 Easton second-team All-American, led the Mountain West in home runs, runs scored and slugging percentage in 2008, while ranking second in the nation in home runs per game, third in runs per game, fourth in total home runs and eighth in slugging percentage. In her time at Colorado State, Miller helped coach 23 all-conference selections, including two freshmen of the year and two players of the year. CSU hitters also earned 14 player-of-the-week awards under Miller. On a national and regional level, Miller helped instruct 12 All-West region selections, one NFCA second-team All-American and four Easton All-Americans, including two first-team selections. Prior to entering the coaching profession, Miller was a three-time All-America catcher at Missouri Southern State College and led her team to an NCAA Division II national championship in 1992. In the fall of 2002, Miller was inducted into the Missouri Southern State College Hall of Fame along with every member of the championship team. In November of 2003, she was inducted into the school’s Hall of Fame as an individual student-athlete. Miller earned her undergraduate degree in education from Missouri Southern in 1992, and later received her master's of arts degree from the University of Nebraska-Omaha in 1995. She received her first coaching job at UNO from Mary Yori, the older sister of Nebraska women’s basketball head coach Connie Yori.

The 2009 NU coaching staff ranks as one of the nation's best. Led by Head Coach Rhonda Revelle, an NFCA Hall of Famer, the Huskers have won six Big 12 titles and advanced to 14 NCAA Tournaments, including two Women's College World Series. Individually, Revelle has coached 14 NFCA All-Americans and 10 CoSIDA Academic AllAmericans in 17 seasons. The totals on the left tell the story of hitting coach Diane Miller, who is in her second season at Nebraska. In her final five seasons at Colorado State, Miller directed an offense that ranked in the top 10 nationally in home runs three times and averaged nearly six runs per game. In 2009, Miller helped the Husker offense set three school records while averaging nearly five runs per game and hitting more homers in her first season than the team had hit the previous two seasons combined. The rankings on the right represent the expertise of pitching coach Lori Sippel, who is in her 21st season at Nebraska. Sippel, who also guided Team Canada to a fourth-place finish at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, has produced more All-Big 12 pitchers than any other school while ranking in the top 10 nationally in ERA twice since 2004.

Under Osborne's leadership, the Husker bowling team brought home Nebraska's 24th alltime national title in 2009, while the volleyball team won another Big 12 title and advanced to the NCAA semifinals. Across the board, Husker programs have started an upward trend in the Big 12 and national standings the past two years. Husker student-athletes produced a stellar year in 2008-09. Nebraska had six CoSIDA Academic All-Americans, bringing NU's nation-leading total to 271, while also setting a conference record with 172 academic All-Big 12 selections across all sports. Since retiring from football in 1997, Osborne has found several ways to stay active in his home state. His most visible post-coaching foray came in the political arena, as he served three terms in the U.S. House of Representatives from Nebraska’s third congressional district from 2000 to 2006. He also made a gubernatorial bid in 2006. A native of Hastings, Neb., Osborne served as a senior lecturer at Nebraska in the College of Business Administration, teaching leadership and business ethics, in the fall of 2007. He completed the fall semester while working in the athletic department. Osborne has also worked as a consultant for local college athletic departments over the past two years. Widely known for his leadership, integrity, honor and compassion, Osborne has poured time and effort into building a unique mentoring program within the state. The TeamMates program, founded by Tom and his wife, Nancy, in 1991, provides support and encouragement to school-aged youth with the goal of seeing children graduate from high school and pursue a post-secondary education. Osborne still actively provides leadership in the college football ranks despite being away from the sideline for a decade. He is currently a voter on the coaches poll for the Master Coaches Poll. While he may hold a key position that molds the future of Nebraska Athletics, many will remember Osborne for his legendary service to the program as a football coach. Osborne was named Nebraska’s 25th head coach following the 1972 season and worked the sideline for 25 years, the longest tenure in school history. Under Osborne’s direction, the program achieved remarkable success, exceeding any in its rich history. The Cornhuskers mounted a 255-49-3 record under Osborne, good for a winning percentage of .836. The 255 victories are the sixth-most all-time among major college football coaches while the winning percentage ranks fifth all-time. His achievements were so highly regarded that the National Football Foundation waived its three-year waiting period so that he could be inducted into its Hall of Fame in December of 1998. He is one of only four coaches in history to have the mandatory three-year waiting period waived. Osborne’s coaching career came to a poetic end in the 1998 Orange Bowl. In his final game, the Huskers defeated No. 3 Tennessee, 42-17, giving him a share of a third national title in his final four seasons. The victory left Osborne as the first coach in college football history to retire as a reigning national champion, along with the nation’s best active winning percentage. Osborne guided the Huskers to back-to-back titles in 1994 and 1995, then capped his career by sharing the 1997 title with Michigan. Nebraska’s back-to-back national titles in 1994-95 made Osborne the first coach to accomplish that feat since Bear Bryant led Alabama to titles in 1978-79. Under Osborne, NU became just the second school all time and the first since Oklahoma in 1955-56 to post back-to-back perfect national championship seasons. In fact, Osborne’s last five Nebraska teams put together the best five-year run in collegiate football history with an amazing 60-3 record, including five consecutive 11-win seasons. Osborne-coached Nebraska teams captured 13 conference crowns, including six of his last seven seasons on the sideline. All 25 of his Husker teams won at least nine games and went to a bowl, while 15 won 10-or-more games. In the classroom, Osborne’s teams were just as successful as they were on the field. Under Osborne’s guidance, the Husker football program totaled 65 CoSIDA Academic AllAmerica awards in 25 years, averaging more than two selections per season. To put Osborne’s dedication to developing complete student-athletes in perspective, he accumulated more football Academic All-Americans in his 25 years as coach than any other football program in the nation has produced in its history. Notre Dame has produced the second-most football academic All-Americans all-time, totaling 50 selections dating back to 1952. Prior to becoming head coach, Osborne spent five seasons under Devaney, helping the Huskers win back-to-back national championships in 1970 and 1971. In 1973, Osborne succeeded Devaney, who also served as Nebraska’s Athletic Director from 1967 to 1993. Osborne and his wife, Nancy, have three adult children, Mike, Ann and Suzanne and four grandchildren.

osborne » athletic director A Hall of Fame football coach returned to his roots on Oct. 16, 2007, to become the 13th athletic director at the University of Nebraska. Tom Osborne accepted the position at the time because, Osborne said, “Harvey Perlman asked me.” Perlman, UNL’s chancellor, asked Osborne to lead the program where he had served so productively as head football coach. Two months later, on Dec. 20, 2007, he announced that the word “interim” had been removed from Osborne’s title, and he would remain athletic director for the foreseeable future. Holder of master’s and doctorate degrees from the University of Nebraska in educational psychology, Osborne said he probably would not have considered coaching if he had not met Bob Devaney, who convinced him to become a volunteer graduate assistant on his staff. “Bob epitomized the value of loyalty, and I will always be grateful for the confidence he showed in me,” Osborne said. “Because of his leadership and empowerment as a coach and an athletic director, I was fortunate to serve 25 years as head coach.” Devaney put Osborne in charge of the offense that won two national titles and allowed him to concentrate on three areas he thought were important – a strong academic program for student-athletes, a strength and conditioning program and a more formalized program to attract walk-on players. Each area has grown into an important asset for all 23 Nebraska sports programs, which Osborne now oversees. Within months of his Athletic Director appointment, Osborne quietly re-established an athletic department mission based on five core values – integrity, trust, respect, teamwork and loyalty.

» associate a.d./senior woman administrator

A member of the Nebraska Athletics senior administration since May 2003, Marc Boehm (pronounced BAME) serves as executive associate athletic director and is the top assistant to the athletic director. Boehm fulfills the director's responsibilities in his absence and also serves as the department's chief operating officer. Boehm oversees the efforts of several areas within athletics, including marketing, media relations, HuskerVision, facilities and events. Boehm also oversees the Nebraska men's and women's basketball programs and the Husker soccer program. He also played a major role in the athletic department's negotiations for its contract extension with IMG College Sports. To date, it is the largest multi-media rights contract in college athletics. As the primary administrator for the NU basketball programs, Boehm played an integral role in the hiring of Doc Sadler to be the Huskers' new coach on Aug. 8, 2006. Sadler had the Huskers on the brink of the postseason in the final weeks of the campaign and then signed a recruiting class ranked among the top 15 in the nation by several services. Boehm has worked tirelessly with Fox Sports Net and the Big 12 Conference to provide the men's basketball team with an extensive television package each of the past three seasons. His efforts in providing a fan-friendly atmosphere at the Bob Devaney Sports Center have also led to an increase of more than 20 percent in attendance at women's games over the past five seasons. Under Boehm's guidance, the teams have combined for eight postseason appearances in the past five years. The women's team advanced to the second round game in the NCAA Tournament for the third time in school history in 2008, after making its second straight trip to the Big Dance. Coach Connie Yori's Huskers have made six consecutive postseason tournament appearances. The men have seen recent success as well, reaching postseason play three times during Boehm's tenure, including a trip to the 2009 Postseason NIT. Boehm's efforts to enhance NU's gameday atmosphere were not restricted to the basketball programs. He was instrumental in conceptualizing and developing the Husker Nation Pavilion, which quickly became the premier pregame event around home football games. Boehm also took the lead role in obtaining First National Bank and Ameritas as premier sponsors for the Nebraska Athletic Department for a combined deal worth more than $7 million over a three-year period. First National Bank and Ameritas joined ALLTEL, Pepsi and adidas as premier corporate sponsors for Husker athletics. Boehm held the same position at Pittsburgh from 1997 to 2003. Boehm assisted in the rise of the Panthers' basketball program with the men's team posting back-to-back Sweet 16 appearances in the NCAA Tournament. During construction of the Panthers’ new athletic facilities, Boehm played a central role in Pitt's athletic teams moving to the UPMC Sports Performance Complex, Heinz Field and the Petersen Events Center. Boehm served as interim athletic director at Pittsburgh for nearly five months before coming to Nebraska. During that time, he hired new men's (Jamie Dixon) and women's basketball (Agnus Berenato) and soccer (Sue-Moy Chin) head coaches for the Panther program. Under Dixon's direction, the Panthers have advanced to eight straight NCAA Tournaments, while Berenato has rejuvenated the women's program with three straight NCAA Tournament appearances from 2007 to 2009. Boehm also spent five years as associate executive director of the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. He directed and managed a 125-member fund-raising committee of Arizona business people responsible for generating more than $4.5 million in cash and in-kind partnerships. Previously he spent four years as associate executive director and public relations director of the Sun Bowl from 1987 to 1991. Born in Grand Island, Boehm earned his bachelor's degree in communications from Kansas State in 1984 and added a master's degree in sports management from St. Thomas (Fla.) University in 1985. Boehm and his wife, the former Janelle Broderick of Minot, N.D., have three boys, Broderick, Christian and Lukas John.

A member of the Nebraska Athletic Department since 1979, Pat Logsdon was promoted to senior woman administrator on March 7, 2008, in addition to her duties as associate athletic director for administration.

Previously, Logsdon spent six seasons as NU’s director of football operations, the first female in Division I to serve in that capacity. She handled organization of all recruiting functions, supervised compliance activities and coordinated all football administrative operations, including travel and practice operations. Logsdon served three years as assistant to the director of football operations and 14 seasons as the football recruiting secretary. Logsdon received a bachelor’s degree in education from Nebraska in 1989. She is married to Rob Logsdon.

He oversaw OSU’s Olympic sports programs as well as the training and strength and conditioning, wrestling, men’s and women’s track and field and men’s and women’s tennis programs. Burton came to Nebraska from Texas Tech, where he served as an associate athletic director for compliance for one year. While at Texas Tech, Burton helped complete the NCAA investigation into the Red Raider athletic department and analyzed the entire compliance system at the institution. He also helped identify and implement financial aid and eligibility systems, including changes in personnel and restructuring of the compliance department. Burton, who was a member of the NCAA Division I women’s soccer committee for three years and was a member of the NCAA Division I bowling committee, served as a legislative administrator for the NCAA from 1989 to 1993. At the NCAA, he was involved in the development of legislation, interpretation of regulations and reviewed legal issues related to the application of the association’s regulations. He served as an NCAA liaison to committees and conducted comprehensive education to several intercollegiate athletic conferences. He has served on the National Association of Athletic Compliance Coordinators Executive Committee and the subcommittee of Big 12 Directors of Compliance. He received his bachelor’s degree in finance from Nebraska in 1985 and his juris doctorate from the Nebraska College of Law in 1989.

2009 Season Review


2009 Season Review Molly Hill was a first-team CoSIDA Academic All-American and a first-team All-Big 12 selection in 2009

A return trip to the NCAA Tournament highlighted a successful season for the 2009 Nebraska softball team. After qualifying for 13 consecutive NCAA tournaments from 1995 to 2007, NU missed out on the postseason in 2008. But led by the largest senior class in program history, the Huskers made it back into the NCAA Tournament in 2009. Along the journey back to the postseason, Nebraska posted its best single-season turnaround since 2000, winning 10 more games in 2009 than it did in 2008. The Huskers also recorded their 1,000th win of the NCAA era, making Nebraska one of only 10 programs nationally to win 1,000 games since softball became an officially sanctioned NCAA sport in 1982. Head Coach Rhonda Revelle, who completed her 17th season at Nebraska in 2009, also picked up her 650th career victory during the season, and the Huskers’ opening win in the NCAA Tournament marked Revelle’s 650th victory at her alma mater. The postseason berth capped a season-long quest to restore the tradition of a proud program that ranks in the top 10 all-time in NCAA Tournament wins (51), NCAA Tournament appearances (19) and Women’s College World Series appearances (seven). In getting back to the postseason, several school records fell while Nebraska added to its nation-leading total of CoSIDA Academic All-Americans. Four Huskers earned All-Big 12 recognition, including first-team selection Molly Hill and second-team honorees Crystal Carwile, Amanda Duran and Meghan Mullin. Hill, Carwile and Mullin were all repeat all-conference selections, while Carwile became the eighth Husker to be a four-time All-Big 12 pick since the conference was formed in 1996. Sophomore Julie Brechtel was also honored as a Big 12 Championship all-tournament selection and added Nebraska’s lone Big 12 Player-of-the-Week award in 2009. In the circle, Hill was a two-time Big 12 Pitcher-of-the-Week selection, while freshman Ashley Hagemann earned the same honor following the first weekend of her career. The Huskers also excelled off the field. Hill was named a first-team CoSIDA Academic All-American, giving Nebraska 26 all-time selections, a total that leads all softball programs and ranks second nationally among all female sports (the Husker volleyball program ranks first). Hill became NU’s seventh first-team honoree and sixth repeat selection. Mullin joined Hill as a first-team academic all-district selection and at the conference level, seven Huskers were named to the academic All-Big 12 team. The seven selections were the most for Nebraska since 1999, while six Huskers earned first-team accolades, the most since 2002. Back on the diamond, Nebraska posted impressive offensive totals while returning to its proud tradition of pitching success. Under the direction of first-year hitting coach Diane Miller, Nebraska showed more patience and power at the plate. The Huskers slugged 31 home runs in 2009 after managing just 29 home runs the previous two seasons combined. Ten Huskers homered on the season, marking the highest total in the 34-year history of the program. Nebraska established three team offensive records in 2009. In addition to totaling a school-record 15 sacrifice flies, the Huskers were hit by a school-record 48 pitches and NU’s average of 3.35 walks per game was easily the highest in program history. The hit batters and walks helped Nebraska post the third-best on-base percentage (.382) in school history to go along with the sixth-best batting average (.277). More baserunners combined with increased power meant more runs for Nebraska. The Huskers scored 251 runs on the season, totaling at least 250 runs scored for just the second time in the last five years. NU averaged 4.65 runs per game, the fifth-highest total in program history.

In the circle, Nebraska rebounded from a sub-par 2008 campaign to finish with the second-best ERA in the Big 12 in 2009 (1.95). The Huskers allowed 89 fewer runs in 2009 than they did in 2008, while holding opponents to a meager .218 batting average. Nebraska also surrendered just 20 home runs on the season, including only two in Big 12 play, which is believed to be a conference record. Hill’s first-team All-Big 12 selection carried on the rich tradition of Husker pitchers earning postseason accolades. With Hill’s selection, Nebraska increased its Big 12-leading total to 16 all-conference pitchers in the first 14 years of the league. Hill was also Nebraska’s 12th first-team All-Big 12 pitching selection, which is the highest total in the conference. Hill was one of seven seniors for Nebraska in 2009, the most in program history. That came in stark contrast to 2008 when the Huskers were without a single senior for the only time in the 34-year history of Nebraska softball. The leadership of the senior class and its desire to restore the program’s tradition fueled the Huskers’ return trip to the NCAA Tournament. The season began indoors on an Astroturf football field at the UNI-Dome Classic in Cedar Falls, Iowa. After an offseason of work with Coach Miller, the Husker hitters were anxious to step into the box and once they did, the results were apparent. Nebraska totaled 34 runs while going 4-0 at the tournament, tying a school record in the process by scoring at least 10 runs in three straight games. As good as the offense was, Hagemann was the star of the weekend, as she threw a one-hitter in her career debut, striking out 19 batters, a Nebraska record for a seven-inning game. For her efforts, she became the first Husker freshman pitcher since 2001 to earn the honor of Big 12 Pitcher of the Week. Nebraska then took a step up in competition two weeks later, when the Huskers traveled to California to compete in the prestigious Cathedral City Classic. NU played four of its five games that weekend against NCAA Tournament teams, opening with a run-rule victory over NCAA Tournament qualifier UNLV to start a season 5-0 for the first time since 2003. The Huskers finished the tournament with a 2-3 record after losing a pair of games to No. 12 Northwestern and eventual national champion Washington on the final day of the event. The Huskers dropped a third straight game to a ranked team at the NFCA Leadoff Classic, falling to UMass, 3-0. Nebraska rebounded to close the month of February with a 5-2 victory over Penn State to conclude the rain-shortened classic. The win came with disappointing news, as All-American transfer pitcher Robin Mackin elected to undergo season-ending surgery after throwing her first – and only – 2.0 innings of the season against the Nittany Lions. Even without Mackin, the Huskers rolled through the month of March. Nebraska entered March with a solid 7-4 record, but by the time the month was complete, the Huskers had already matched their 2008 victory total by boasting an impressive 25-7 record. That marked the second-best 32-game record in school history and was fueled by an 18-2 March record that included three separate six-game winning streaks and a ninegame winning streak at Bowlin Stadium. The impressive month began on the road, as Nebraska swept through the Wichita State Shocker Invitational by posting a 4-0 record. The Huskers earned two run-rule victories in the event while outscoring their opponents 38-7. NU then wrapped up its tournament travels back in California at another prestigious event, the Judi Garman Classic. The Huskers finished an impressive 4-1 at the tournament, 72


tying for the best record among the 17-team tournament field that included nine ranked teams and four top-10 squads. Brechtel stole the show in her return to her hometown of Fullerton, as she earned Big 12 Player-of-the-Week honors for her effort at the tournament. In five games at the classic, Brechtel led all hitters with a .583 average, while adding seven RBIs and five runs scored. Riding the momentum of a terrific weekend, the Huskers opened the home portion of their schedule with a pair of hard-fought, extra-inning wins over a North Dakota State squad that went on to win the NCAA Norman Regional. The Huskers then swept a doubleheader from South Dakota that capped the second six-game win streak and gave NU 13 wins in 14 games. In game two, Mullin walked four times to tie the school record for walks in a game. Overall, she drew walks in six consecutive plate appearances, which is believed to be a school record. The Huskers opened Big 12 play at 19th-ranked Texas A&M, losing a heartbreaker in game one before rallying for an extra-inning victory in game two that marked NU’s first win at College Station since 2000. In game two, Nebraska trailed 1-0 with two outs and nobody on in the top of the seventh inning before senior Brittany Pascale got the rally started with a walk on a 3-2 pitch. Pinch-hitter Alex Hupp followed with a single before pinch-hitter Kelli Linke scored pinch-runner Nikki Haget with an RBI single to tie the game. In the ninth, Brechtel led off with a single before Heidi Foland followed with a double. Pascale brought Brechtel home with a sacrifice fly and Foland scored on a squeeze from Hupp to cap the 3-2 win. Nebraska ventured back into non-conference play in the midweek, sweeping a doubleheader from South Dakota State by the combined score of 16-0 in two run-rule wins. The next day was more difficult for the Huskers, as they managed to get by a scrappy Drake squad. In game one, Nebraska trailed 2-0 in the fifth inning before the Huskers scored four runs off three home runs in the span of four batters. In game two, Drake led 4-3 heading into the sixth inning before Nebraska rallied for four runs to earn its 18th win in 20 games. The Huskers closed March with a doubleheader split with Oklahoma State at Bowlin Stadium. Nebraska again needed a late rally in game one, scoring four times in the sixth inning to come back for a 6-3 win. In game two, Oklahoma State broke a scoreless tie with two six-inning runs that proved to be the only runs of the game. The loss to the Cowgirls started a four-game losing streak for the Huskers that included a pair of one-run losses at 12th-ranked Oklahoma in the only Big 12 series of the season when Nebraska was swept. The Huskers got back in the win column at Kansas on April 8, winning game one of a doubleheader. But in game two, Nebraska lost a seventh-inning lead for just the fourth time in six years, losing by one on a walk-off, two-run single. The Huskers bounced back from that defeat with a two-game sweep over No. 20 Texas on Easter weekend. Jamie Gay was the sparkplug in game one, as she made her Big 12 debut by doubling and scoring the game-tying run. In game two, Linke stepped up, finishing with a career-high five RBIs in Nebraska’s 5-2 win. That proved to be the Huskers’ only sweep of the conference season. Nebraska split with Iowa State, winning 10-0 in five innings before losing 4-3 two days later. Two weeks later against Texas Tech, the Huskers won 8-0 in five innings before again falling 4-3 in the second meeting. In between those two unusual series was a contest at NCAA Regional champion Baylor, where the Huskers lost 4-3 in 10 innings in game one before winning 1-0 in game two in an outstanding performance from Hill. Nebraska’s final three midweek games all came against teams from the Missouri Valley Conference. The Huskers split a doubleheader with Northern Iowa, as a season-high five errors allowed the Panthers to win game two. One week later, the Huskers traveled to Omaha and topped Creighton 3-1 thanks to a home run from Brechtel and a two-run single from Carwile. The Huskers closed the regular season at Missouri against a Tiger squad that went on to become the Big 12’s lone representative at the Women’s College World Series. Nebraska opened the series by handing Missouri its worst loss of the regular season, 6-1, behind the only home runs of the season from Linke and Whitney Barrett. The Tigers came back to win 5-0 in game two, despite recording only three hits. Postseason play began at the Big 12 Championship, where the Huskers earned the No. 5 seed and faced a rematch with Texas. After limiting the powerful Longhorn offense to only three runs in the two regular-season meetings, Texas exploded for 10 runs in Oklahoma City to win a 10-5 slugfest. Brechtel and Foland highlighted the loss with backto-back home runs, as Brechtel finished 2-for-3 with a homer and two RBIs to earn a spot on the all-tournament team. NU was sent to Knoxville, Tenn., for its 19th all-time NCAA Tournament appearance. The Huskers opened the regional with a 4-2 nine-inning win over eventual regional champion Jacksonville State. Nebraska led Tennessee 1-0 in its next game, before the Lady Vols rallied for a 5-2 win. The Huskers then saw their season come to a close with a 4-1 loss to Jacksonville State.

Nebraska finished the season with a 35-19 record, including a 9-9 mark in Big 12 play that led to a fifth-place finish. Nine of the Huskers’ losses came by just a single run, including eight of NU’s nine conference defeats. Nebraska scored 121 more runs than its opponents in only 54 games, winning by an average of more than two runs per game. Along the way, Nebraska posted 11 run-rule victories after combining for only six run-rule wins over the previous two seasons. With the season complete, Nebraska said goodbye to the largest senior class in program history. The seven-player group combined for 141 wins, three NCAA Tournament appearances and two Big 12 runner-up finishes over the last four years. Individually, the seniors combined to earn a total of nine All-Big 12 awards and two CoSIDA Academic AllAmerica certificates. Collectively, they helped restore the tradition of Husker softball with a return to excellence in 2009.

Huskers Reach 35 Wins, Return to NCAA Tournament

After winning only 28 games and falling one game short of an automatic NCAA Tournament bid in 2008, Nebraska posted 35 wins and earned an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament in 2009. The Huskers have won at least 35 games in 11 of the past 12 seasons while advancing to postseason play in 14 of the last 15 years.

Hill Earns Second Straight CoSIDA All-America Honor

Molly Hill became the sixth Husker to repeat as a CoSIDA Academic All-American, as she was a first-team selection in 2009 after earning third-team honors in 2008. With Hill's latest selection, Nebraska has produced more academic All-Americans (26) than any other softball program in the country, while ranking second nationally (behind Nebraska volleyball) among all female sports. Hill graduated in May with a degree in speech language pathology. She earned her degree in four years and posted a cumulative grade-point average above 3.950. Hill earned eight spots on the Big 12 Commissioner's Honor Roll in her career, three first-team academic All-Big 12 selections and three ESPN the Magazine Academic All-District VII accolades.

Four Seniors Earn All-Big 12 Recognition

Crystal Carwile highlighted a list of four Husker seniors named to the 2009 All-Big 12 first or second team. Carwile joined classmates Amanda Duran and Meghan Mullin on the second team, while Molly Hill was a first-team selection. Carwile earned All-Big 12 honors every year of her career, becoming the eighth Husker to be a four-time All-Big 12 selection. Carwile was a second-team selection in 2006 and 2007 and a first-team pick in 2008. She tore her ACL in the first game of the 2009 season, but returned to start 51 games. A .307 hitter on the year, Carwile tied for the team lead with 36 RBIs, as she became the first Husker ever to lead NU in RBIs all four seasons. In the circle, Hill was Nebraska’s lone first-team honoree after earning second-team honors in 2007. Hill finished her senior season with a 25-15 record and a 1.66 ERA. She ranked third in the league in wins and innings pitched, fourth in strikeouts and ERA and fifth in shutouts. In Big 12 games only, Hill tied for the conference lead in shutouts, while finishing second in wins and ERA. Hill’s battery mate, Duran garnered the first All-Big 12 award of her career. A native of Tucson, Ariz., Duran made the most of her only full season as a Husker. Duran transferred to NU prior to the 2008 season, but missed more than half of the year with a broken hand. She returned in 2009 to lead the team with a .364 average, 11 doubles and 36 RBIs, while ranking third in the league in on-base percentage and seventh in walks and batting average. Defensively, Duran threw out the highest percentage of base stealers of any catcher in the conference. Mullin earned a spot on the All-Big 12 second team for the second straight year. After posting the Huskers’ top batting average in both 2007 and 2008, Mullin finished second with a .333 average in 2009. She led NU with 57 hits, 44 runs scored, 29 walks and 20 stolen bases while ranking fourth in the conference in walks, fifth in runs, sixth in stolen bases and 14th in batting average.

Brechtel Named to Big 12 All-Tournament Team

Julie Brechtel was one of 13 players selected to the 2009 Big 12 Softball Championship all-tournament team. Brechtel was honored for her outstanding game in the Huskers’ 10-5 loss to Texas. Against the Longhorns, Brechtel finished 2-for-3 with a home run and two RBIs. She also added a walk and a run scored. Julie Brechtel

Huskers Claimed Four Big 12 Weekly Awards

Milestone Moments

After winning only one Big 12 weekly award in 2008, three Huskers were honored with four awards in 2009. Molly Hill was named Big 12 Pitcher of the Week twice, while Ashley Hagemann earned the first award of the season following an outstanding debut weekend. Julie Brechtel was named the Big 12 Player of the Week on March 16.

Crystal Carwile and Molly Hill ended their careers in elite company in Husker history by reaching several impressive career milestones. Carwile ranks in the top five on four Husker career offensive charts, while Hill earned a spot among the top six on five NU career pitching charts. Below is a breakdown of the duo's career milestones: Crystal Carwile Milestone Carwile’s Career Total Huskers to Reach Milestone Rank 20 Hit-by-Pitches 23 2 1st 140 RBIs 141 3 3rd 30 Home Runs 32 4 3rd 40 Doubles 41 5 t-4th

Seven Huskers Named Academic All-Big 12

Nebraska was well represented on the 2009 academic All-Big 12 softball teams, as seven Huskers were honored, including six first-team selections and two three-time honorees. The seven total selections represented Nebraska’s highest total since 1999 (also seven selections in 2001, 2002 and 2005), while the six first-team honorees were the Huskers’ most since 2002. Molly Hill and Meghan Mullin headlined the group, as each was named to the first team for the third time in their careers. Haley Long, Alex Hupp, Julie Brechtel and Heidi Foland all earned academic All-Big 12 honors for the first time in their careers and each was a first-team selection. Crystal Carwile was also a first-time honoree, as she earned a spot on the second team.

Huskers produce 10-Game Improvement from 2008

With a victory in the first game of the NCAA Tournament, Nebraska posted a doubledigit win improvement from one season to the next for only the sixth time in program history. The Huskers won 10 more games in 2009 (35) than they did in 2008 (25). The last Nebraska team to post a double-digit win improvement prior to the 2009 squad was the 2000 Huskers, which won 52 games after winning 35 games in 1999.

Mullin Ties School Single-Game Walk Record

Meghan Mullin tied a school record in game two of a March 24 doubleheader with South Dakota, as she walked in each of her four plate appearances. The only other player in school history to walk four times in a game was Sheena Lawrick on Feb. 19, 2005, against Texas-San Antonio. Mullin then walked twice in her first two plate appearances in her next game at No. 19 Texas A&M, giving her what is believed to be an NU record of six consecutive walks. She finished the year with 29 walks to tie for ninth place on the Husker season chart.

Big 12 Turnaround

After tying for ninth in the final 2008 Big 12 standings and earning the No. 10 seed at the Big 12 Championship, Nebraska made a terrific turnaround in 2009, finishing fifth in the league standings with virtually the exact same roster. With five more conference victories from 2008 to 2009, Nebraska posted the third-best improvement of any team in the 14-year history of the Big 12 Conference. The Huskers became only the second team in league history to be the 10th seed in the conference tournament one year and then be a top-six seed the next season. The Huskers were poised for an even bigger turnaround were it not for several narrow losses. In its nine conference losses, NU suffered seven one-run defeats, including two in extra innings and four in the opponent's final at bat. Overall, the Huskers either had the lead or the game was tied in the sixth inning in seven of their nine losses.

Nebraska Records 1,000th NCAA Win

Since softball became an official NCAA sport in 1982, Nebraska has posted 1,001 victories, winning its 1,000th game at Women’s College World Series qualifier Missouri on May 2. Although no official statistic is kept for victories in the NCAA-era, according to research from CBS College Sports conducted in 2007, the Huskers are only the 10th program to post 1,000 wins in the NCAA era. The nine other teams that have reached 1,000 NCAA wins are UCLA, Arizona, Florida State, Cal State Fullerton, LouisianaLafayette, California, Texas A&M, Oklahoma and East Carolina.

Husker Offense Sets School Marks in Miller's First Season

The Nebraska offense posted impressive totals in 2009 in its first year under the direction of hitting coach Diane Miller. The Huskers set school records for most sacrifice flies and most hit batters in a season, while posting the highest walk-per-game average in the 34-year history of the program. NU also posted the third-highest on-base percentage in Husker history in 2009, while averaging the fifth-most runs per game. Below is a breakdown of where the 2009 offense ranked in the NU record books: Category 2009 Total Rank Hit-By-Pitches 48 1st Walks Per Game 3.35 1st Sacrifice Flies 15 1st On-Base Percentage .376 3rd Walks 181 4th Runs Per Game 4.65 5th RBIs Per Game 3.87 5th

Homering Huskers

Ten players hit at least one home run in 2009, marking the first time in the 34-year history of the program that 10 players homered in the same season. The previous high had been nine players homering in both the 1998 and 2004 seasons. 75

» second place

» fifth place (tied) The 1982 season marked softball’s first year as an NCAA sport and the inaugural Women’s College World Series was held at Seymour Smith Field in Omaha. A field of 16 teams competed in regional play, with the eight winners advancing to the World Series. Head Coach Nancy Plantz made sure the hometown Huskers would be a part of the inaugural event, as she guided her team to a 33-14 record and Nebraska’s first-ever Big Eight championship. After taking 2-of-3 games from Missouri in the Mideast Regional, NU finished 1-2 in Omaha to tie for fifth place.

NCAA Midwest Regional (Lincoln, Neb.) Missouri W, 1-0 (11) Missouri L, 0-1 Missouri W, 4-1

In 1985, Nebraska posted its best finish in school history, advancing to the Women’s College World Series title game before finishing runner-up to UCLA. The Huskers breezed to the title game behind the arm of Lori Sippel, as Nebraska outscored its first three opponents 13-1. In the championship game, 3,180 fans watched as Janet Pinneau recorded a walk-off RBI single in the bottom of the ninth inning to give UCLA the title. In the World Series opener, Sippel tossed the fourth no-hitter in World Series history against Louisiana Tech. Despite her no-hitter, Sippel did not earn a spot on the all-tournament team, but the Huskers had four players who did, including Ginger Cannon who had a tournament-best five RBIs. In the regular season, Nebraska finished 38-11 and won its second straight Big Eight championship.

After missing the 1983 event, the Huskers finished in a third-place tie at the 1984 Women’s College World Series. Wayne Daigle guided Nebraska to a 39-13 record and a Big Eight championship, setting a school record for victories that would stand until 1987. The Huskers’ path to Omaha was not easy, as NU needed 18 and 14 innings to post one-run victories over conference foe Oklahoma State in the Mideast Regional. At the World Series, NU posted a 2-2 record. The Husker offense posted a World Series-high .248 average, but Nebraska’s 1.22 ERA was nearly one run higher than the ERA of any of the other seven teams. Denice Feldhaus, Ann Schroeder and Peg Richardson were named to the all-tournament team as Richardson (.500) and Schroeder (.455) were the top two hitters at the World Series.

In the event’s final appearance in Omaha, Ron Wolforth led his first Husker team to the Women’s College World Series in 1987. Led by second-team All-Americans Lori Sippel and Lori Richins, the 1987 Nebraska Cornhuskers were the first team in school history to win 40 games in a season, as their 41 victories stood as the school record until 1995. In the postseason, NU defeated familiar foe Fresno State in finishing in a tie for third place at the World Series. Sippel finished with a 0.50 ERA at the World Series, earning a spot on the all-tournament team.

The NCAA Tournament field expanded to 20 teams in 1988, but that did not stop the Nebraska Cornhuskers from advancing to the program’s second consecutive Women’s College World Series, and NU’s fifth appearance in the first seven years of the event. The Huskers captured their fifth consecutive Big Eight championship during the regular season and traveled outside of Nebraska for the World Series, which was contested in Sunnyvale, Calif. Nebraska posted a 1-2 showing in Sunnyvale, finishing in a tie for fifth place. Lori Sippel posted an individual best 0.00 ERA to lead Nebraska to a World Series-low 0.30 team ERA. Despite the strong pitching performances, outfielder Margie Ogrodowicz was the Huskers’ lone all-tournament selection.

Nebraska advanced to the Women’s College World Series out of a 64-team field for the first time in 2002. The 2002 Cornhuskers are also the only one of NU’s seven World Series teams to advance to the event by winning a regional away from Lincoln. In the regular season, Nebraska posted its third straight 50-win season, finishing with a 50-14 record. The Huskers breezed through the Iowa City Regional, before losing two tough one-run games in Oklahoma City. Seventh-seeded Nebraska fell to No. 2 Arizona in the opener, before defeating sixth-seeded Michigan. The Huskers were then eliminated by No. 8 Florida State. In a pitching dominated event, Nebraska’s .191 average ranked third, while the Huskers‘ 1.40 ERA ranked sixth.

Head Coach Rhonda Revelle, who was a starter on NU’s 1982 inaugural Women’s College World Series team, returned her alma mater to the championship event in 1998, the final season that featured a 32-team field. The Huskers established a school-record .800 winning percentage, finishing with a 48-12 record. NU swept both the regular season and postseason Big 12 titles, finishing a perfect 20-0, including the only undefeated regular season in conference history. Led by three first- or second-team All-Americans, Nebraska tied for fifth place at the World Series in Oklahoma City. A potent Husker offense hit just .086 in the event, but Ali Viola slugged a home run in her final career at bat, marking Nebraska’s second home run in 25 all-time World Series games.

Nebraska softball boasts one of the richest traditions in the history of NCAA Division I softball. As the chart above illustrates, the Huskers rank seventh all-time with seven appearances in the Women’s College World Series. NU boasts an all-time World Series record of 11-14, as the 11 victories rank as the eighth most in NCAA history. Individuals have also seen success, as 10 Huskers have earned a spot on the WCWS All-Tournament team, a total that ranks in the top 10 in NCAA Division I history. Four coaches have led a Nebraska team to the World Series, including current Head Coach Rhonda Revelle, who has taken two Husker squads to the NCAA’s championship event. Nebraska has finished in the top three in three of its seven appearances, while finishing in the top five in every appearance.

day

echo-hawk

One of the greatest hitters in NU history, Denise Day held nearly every offensive record at NU until recent years. A two-time CoSIDA Academic All-American, Day still ranks in the top five in several Nebraska career categories, including batting average (.336-fifth). Day held the all-time home run mark with 28 until 1997. Originally from Pennsylvania, Day earned first-team All-America honors following her senior campaign after hitting .359 with a then-school record 11 homers. In 1985, Day helped NU finish second at the WCWS and earned the prestigious Honda Broderick Award for her achievements.

Tobin Echo-Hawk's first All-America honor came in 1995 after hitting .405 with a schoolrecord 22 doubles. She led the Huskers to a then-school record 43-win season and was named a second-team All-American. As a senior in 1996, Echo-Hawk hit .340 and scored a record 61 runs to earn an at-large berth on the team. In 1994, she hit an amazing .439 and slugged seven homers, but wasn't named to an All-America team. Echo-Hawk ranks among the top three on six NU offensive career charts, including batting average (second, .379), hits (first, 266), runs scored (third, 168), doubles (tied for first, 48) and total bases (third, 378).

richins

viola

Lori Richins became NU's second first-team All-American in 1986 after hitting .297 with six home runs. Richins added a second-team All-America nod the next year after hitting .261 with four homers. Many of Richins' career totals rank in the Husker record book, including batting average (.284-20th). Originally from Chico, Calif., Richins helped the Huskers to a 156-43 record during her career at NU, including a second-place national finish and two third-place ties. Richins was also named to the CoSIDA Academic All-America team on three occasions.

Nebraska's first three-time All-American, Ali Viola owns a storied place in Husker history. Viola also ranks among the greatest offensive players in NCAA history. At the conclusion of her career, Viola’s 53 homers ranked fourth in NCAA history (currently ranks 21st) and her .760 slugging percentage ranked seventh (currently ranks eighth). Viola capped her career in 1998 with a 22-homer performance en route to a second conference player-of-the-year award. Not surprisingly, Viola owns many career NU records, including batting average (.418), home runs (53), RBIs (213), total bases (478) and slugging percentage (.760). Viola owns the top three single-season marks in total bases and RBIs. She also set single-season records for hits (87, 1995), home runs (22, 1998), slugging percentage (.865, 1998) and walks (40, 1998).

SIPPEL

mccoy

Lori Sippel posted arguably the most impressive pitching season in NU history in 1987. She went 20-3 with a 0.38 ERA and six saves to lead NU to a WCWS semifinal appearance. But Sippel's greatest achievement might have been her 1988 NCAA Athlete-of-the-Year award, given to her based on both scholastic and athletic ability. In her career, Sippel racked up 73 victories, 695.1 innings pitched, a 0.54 earned-run average, 838 strikeouts, 39 shutouts, 80 complete games, 16 saves and 10 no-hitters, which all stood atop the Husker career charts until 2000. Despite these numbers, Sippel never captured first-team All-America honors, earning second-team honors in both 1986 and 1987.

In just two years, Christie McCoy established herself as one of the top power hitters in NU history. McCoy slugged 17 homers during her All-America campaign in 1998, which ranks second in the Husker record book. She finished her career with 26 homers, the seventhhighest total in Nebraska history, and a .642 slugging percentage, which ranks second on the Husker career chart. McCoy ranks seventh on the Nebraska all-time chart with a .332 batting average.

ogee Kim Ogee became the Huskers’ 10th NFCA All-American when she earned third-team honors in 2002 after leading the Huskers to the Women’s College World Series. The Omaha, Neb., native led the Huskers in nine offensive categories, including batting average (.356) and steals (31), while starting every game in center field as a junior. Ogee broke the NU career record for stolen bases on April 16, 2003, when she recorded her 92nd steal. She ranks among the top five on several career charts, including at bats (first, 795), games played (first, 258), hits (tied for second, 263), runs (second, 182), doubles (tied for first, 48), total bases (fourth, 369) and walks (third, 115).

Jennifer Lizama joined Ali Viola as the only three-time All-Americans in school history, earning first-team honors in 1999 and second-team recognition in 1997 and 2000. One of the greatest all-around players in Nebraska history, Lizama rewrote the NU record books, finishing her career ranked among the top six on 14 career charts and setting then-career records in at bats (710), games played (232), stolen bases (91), runs scored (199) and walks (124). Lizama ranks second all-time at Nebraska with 47 career home runs, which ranked 11th in NCAA history, but is no longer in the top 25. She slugged two home runs in a single game on three occasions, a feat accomplished at Nebraska only by fellow All-Americans Ali Viola and Christie McCoy.

Jenny Voss became the first in a long line of great Husker pitchers to earn first-team All-America honors in 1998, when she not only eclipsed the never before touched 30-win barrier, but finished with an amazing 40 wins. Voss' 40 wins in 1998 were tied for sixth in NCAA history (currently ranks 17th). She ended the season by hurling 101 consecutive scoreless innings, over a stretch of 14 games. Voss shattered many Husker season pitching records, including victories (40), complete games (46) and innings pitched (340.1). Voss ended 2000 with career records in victories (110), innings pitched (1,073) and complete games (127). She also ranked among the top 15 all-time in NCAA history in games pitched, games started, innings pitched and victories.

Peaches James finished her Husker career by earning second-team All-America honors in 2004. In her senior season, James finished with a 37-9 record and a 0.70 ERA. She set single-season Nebraska records with 394 strikeouts and 18 shutouts. James was named the Big 12 Player of the Year and earned Big 12 Tournament MVP honors. In the Big 12 Tournament, James was dominant, throwing the second perfect game in school history against 19th-ranked Oklahoma. For her career, James is the Nebraska all-time strikeout (945) and shutouts (44) leader and ranks in the top 10 in every pitching category, including ranking second with 98 victories.

Steffan

Leigh Ann Walker earned second-team All-America honors as a sophomore, when she finished with a team-best 1.58 ERA and 233 strikeouts. Walker became the Nebraska career strikeouts leader May 17, 2002, in Nebraska’s NCAA Regional win over Iowa. Walker struck out six Hawkeyes in six innings to break Lori Sippel’s 14-year-old mark of 838 career strikeouts. Walker, who in 2000 became the third Husker to record two 20-win seasons, ended her career ranked among the NU leaders on several other charts, including victories (third, 81), winning percentage (second, .764), innings pitched (fourth, 670), earned-run average (10th, 1.62), shutouts (fifth, 27), saves (sixth, eight) and complete games (eighth, 55).

One of the fastest players in school history, Anne Steffan batted .388 with a schoolrecord 32 stolen bases in her final season at Nebraska. She earned third-team All-America honors for her efforts that included a .430 on-base percentage, 80 hits, 41 runs scored and a school-record 26-game hitting streak. In an outstanding senior campaign, Steffan recorded a multi-hit game a remarkable 25 times in 59 games in 2005. She left NU with the third-highest career average in school history and also ranked second on the career stolen base chart. Steffan went on to become a two-time All-NPF selection for the Chicago Bandits in the National ProFastpitch League.

The Nebraska softball program leads the nation with 26 all-time CoSIDA Academic All-America selections. The Huskers’ 26 selections are six more than any other softball program has produced. Nebraska softball trails only the Husker volleyball program for the highest total of CoSIDA Academic All-Americans among all female sports in the country. On the conference level, Nebraska’s 26 selections tower above the rest of the Big 12, as no other league school has produced even 10 CoSIDA Academic All-Americans. In fact, Head Coach Rhonda Revelle has coached more academic All-Americans at Nebraska than any other conference school has produced in its history. Overall, the University of Nebraska is the national leader with 271 CoSIDA Academic All-Americans across all sports. 84
