Four Big Ten Awards for Huskers Softball

Four Big Ten Awards for Huskers Softball

(Lincoln, NE) – Four Nebraska softball players were honored by the Big Ten with all-conference and other season awards. Senior Billie Andrews would earn All-Big Ten honors for the fourth straight year as she was named All-Big Ten First Team for the 2024 season. She is one of two players in program history to earn All-Big Ten four times and the second to make All-Big Ten First Team three times in her career.

Senior Sydney Gray was announced as All-Big Ten Second Team for the first all-conference award of her career. During the season, Gray also earned three Big Ten Player of the Week awards, tying the conference record for most in a season.

Nebraska freshman Samantha Bland also earned All-Conference for her performance this season when she was named to the Big Ten All-Freshman team. The versatile freshman started games this season in left and center field, plus shortstop and second base.

Finally, junior captain Mckinley Malecha received the Big Ten Sportsmanship award for the Huskers after playing in 28 games and starting four this season. Earlier this year, Malecha was also named to Nebraska’s 2024 Tom Osborne Citizenship Team.
