Pair of Southwest softball players named high school All-Americans
Emma Kauf and Abbie Squier of Lincoln Southwest were named All-Americans by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association Tuesday.
Kauf was named the Diamond/NFCA Catcher of the Year and a first-team All-America catcher. She is the first Nebraskan to be honored twice as a first team selection, earning the honor at second base last season. She’s headed to play collegiately at Georgia Tech in the fall.
Abbie Squier, a junior, was a third team All-America selection in the outfield.
Both Kauf and Squier helped the Silver Hawks win a Class A state title in 2018.
Jayme Horan of Millard South was also recognized as third team All-America at first base.
