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.
