Different level, same success

 

Winning seasons are something the UNO softball program has become accustomed to.  Since 1988, the Mavs have had a winning season every year and average 42 wins per season during that span.


Summit League knows UNO softball is a force

Before the school year began, there was speculation Omaha softball might have been the program best equipped to succeed in the first year of full-time Summit League participation.  Conference head coaches confirmed that belief last Friday when the Mavs were voted fifth out of nine teams in The Summit League preseason poll.
UNO received 38 points in the poll, just two points away from fourth-place Kansas City and six from third-place Western Illinois.  North Dakota State received eight of nine first place votes, and is the overwhelming favorite to win the conference with 64 total points.

Mathewson finds a home, freedom at UNO

When Allie Mathewson stepped into the batter's box for her first at bat of the season, and her first at bat as a Maverick, her shoulders may have been heavy with expectation.  The former Nebraska Gatorade Player of the Year had an illustrious high school career that included a .542 batting average her senior year and a .462 career average overall.
Mathewson was named the honorary captain of the Lincoln Journal Star Super-State team in 2011, and twice received All-Nebraska honors from the Omaha World Herald.  As a freshman at Creighton, Mathewson earned her way onto the All-Missouri Valley Conference Second Team.
But if Mathewson was feeling any pressure, it didn't show.  She put whatever weight of expectations there may have been into a swing that sent a pitch over the left field fence.
