Lincoln Southwest grad Hannah Davis transferring to Nebraska

Hannah Davis, who starred at Lincoln Southwest, was named Nebraska Gatorade Player of the Year in 2017.

Lincoln native Hannah Davis is transferring from Kansas State to join the Husker women’s soccer team, Nebraska announced Wednesday.

“I am so excited to come back home and play in Lincoln for my last two years,” said Davis, who will have two years of eligibility at NU. “Finishing my career for a team that I grew up watching is a dream come true. I can’t wait to start working with the staff and be a part of an amazing Husker team!”

Davis, who starred at Lincoln Southwest, was named Nebraska Gatorade player of the year in 2017.

“We are excited to have Hannah return home and become a Husker,” coach John Walker said. “She is a goal scorer, has pace and has some good natural attacking instincts. She has had some injuries and getting her back healthy will be a priority this spring. I know her best soccer is ahead of her and we are going to see that during these next two seasons here at Nebraska. I think she can become a dangerous player for us.”

During her three-year career with the Wildcats, Davis scored four goals and tallied six assists in 38 games. She earned Big 12 All-Freshman honors in 2017.
