Infielder Smetter Named Third-Team All-American

Nebraska softball’s Ashley Smetter cemented her status as one of the top incoming freshmen in the nation yesterday, when she was named a third-team prep All-American by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association. 

Smetter, a four-year letterwinner at Lincoln Southwest, was named a Super State First Team selection in 2020 and 2021. 

In her senior campaign, the second baseman hit .493 with 27 stolen bases and 63 runs, leading the Silverhawks to their second state title in four years.
