OT - Billie Andrews


Recommended Posts

We have another Nebraska young lady who is dominating on the softball field.  She is a graduate of Gretna high school.  She has 11 home runs in 16 games thus far and has a .462 batting average.  It is extremely encouraging to see our Nebraska athletes doing well in their respective sport.

Biilie continues to dominate on the softball field.  She ranks first nationally with 14 home runs this season and she is already tied for 10th placed for the most home runs by a husker in a season. The lady Huskers still have 32 games left this year.  The all time record by a lady husker in a season is 22 home runs by Ali Viola in 1998.  It will be fun to see how she does for the remaining part of the season.

Tinpanalley - I have been keeping an eye on these girls since your post. This team is pretty nice! I'm getting into it. Right now they're undefeated in the B1G and our valued neighbors to the East are scheduled for a game tomorrow.

Billie has been stalled at 17 home runs for a while.  Teams are not pitching to her.  In one three game series, she was walked 10 out of 11 at bats.  Her 17 home runs puts her tied for 5 place with most home runs in a season.  

 

The team is playing very well right now.  Their two two pitchers are super seniors and have been pitching well as of late.  

 

Actually Ferrel is a super senior, Wallace is a senior and can come back next year.

This team is unbelievable.  They swept Minnesota 3 - 0 this weekend scoring 29 runs and 36 hits.  Shut them out the first two games.  The third game, Huskers were down 8 - 1 after the top of the third inning and came back to win 11 - 8. 18 game win streak.  Still not rated in the polls but this may change after this weekend.  Does the lack of being ranked sound familiar?

 

GO BIG RED.

Bracket for for Big Ten Softball Tournament.  Like our side of the bracket.  We didn't play Illinois this year.  Will be interesting to see if we can beat them assuming higher seeds when their games.  Not sure how Michigan got the fourth seed when they finished fifth in the league.  They are the hottest team right now.  Northwestern will have their hands full if they play each other.

They actually finished tied for fourth.  Big Ten was slow to update standings.

Huskers Win, Huskers Win, Huskers Win, beat PennState 3-1.  Billie Andrews hit a 2 run double to put the Lady Huskers in the lead.  Will play Illinois or Ohio State tomorrow.
