LINCOLN, Neb. — Jordy Bahl, the softball pitching star who transferred to Nebraska after winning two straight national championships at Oklahoma, will miss the rest of the season after injuring her knee during the Cornhuskers’ opener last week.
Bahl posted to social media that she injured the ACL in her left knee while delivering a pitch against Washington at an event in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, on Feb. 8.
“With a heart thankful for God’s plan and timing, I will be redshirting this year, and looking forward to a season of growth and learning from a different point of view,” Bahl posted Tuesday. “I’m thankful for the support of my family, friends, coaches, and staff. I’m truly blessed to have so many wonderful and loving people in my life. I’m not going anywhere. See you in 2025.”
Bahl will apply for a medical hardship for the 2024 season. If granted, she will have two seasons of eligibility remaining.
The two-time All-America pitcher shocked the college softball world last June when — just a week after leading Oklahoma to a third straight national championship and was named Most Outstanding Player in the Women’s College World Series — she announced she would transfer to her home-state school.
Bahl grew up in the Omaha suburb of Papillion and strongly considered going to Nebraska out of high school before picking the powerhouse Sooners. She went 44-2, won two national titles and was Big 12 pitcher of the year and a first-team All-American each year.
