Husker softball signs six, including four from Nebraska

LINCOLN — Omaha Skutt pitcher Kaylan Jablonski, Papillion-La Vista outfielder Gina Metzler, Wahoo infielder Taylor Otte and Millard South catcher Madi Unzicker signed their letters of intent to play softball at Nebraska on Wednesday.

The Huskers also signed infielder Laura Barrow of Kearney, Mo., and pitcher Caitlin Bartsch of The Woodlands, Texas.

Combined, the group has won 10 state championships and added two runner-up finishes.

Jablonski set Nebraska’s all-class career batting average record and produced Class B home run and RBI records, while Unzicker is the state’s all-time home run leader. Both Jablonski and Unzicker were three-time, first-team All-Nebraska selections, while Unzicker was just the fourth player in state history to be a four-time, first-team All-Nebraska honoree. Otte was named to the All-Nebraska team as both a junior and senior.

Barrow and Bartsch also earned all-state honors.

“This is an exceptional class both on the field and in the classroom,” Revelle said. “They are athletic, driven and are passionate about being Huskers. From the day they committed, they have continued to work every day to get better.

“They are proud of the rich tradition of Nebraska softball and are intent on adding to the team’s success. We look for this high-character group to have an immediate and lasting impact on the Nebraska softball program.”
