Team Armstrong

As a thank you for her hometown’s support, Alicia Armstrong wore an orange ribbon every game day. The former Nebraska Softball standout had a battle tested career, but she persevered through injuries to play shortstop for the Huskers all four years of her career. Alicia drew inspiration from her parents, Bill and Gina, who attended every game the Huskers played (more than 240 games). Their only goal was be a reassuring face in the crowd for their daughter.
