LINCOLN, Neb. —

Nebraska takes a young but tested softball team into the Women's College World Series.

The Cornhuskers (45-14) open against Washington (43-15) on Thursday in Oklahoma City.

No team in the WCWS has more freshman contributors than the Huskers, who at No. 14 are the lowest remaining seed left in the NCAA tournament.

Emily Lockman is an All-Big Ten second-team pick and the No. 2 pitcher behind All-American Tatum Edwards. Hailey Decker homered in her first at-bat and has started every game at second base. Alicia Armstrong is an all-conference second-teamer at shortstop and is batting a team-leading .347.

Leadoff batter Kiki Stokes is one of the fastest players in program history and has turned in several spectacular defensive plays in left field the past month.
