Nebraska softball star Jordy Bahl is not going to have the kind of season many envisioned.

Already a national champion and All-American from her time at Oklahoma, Bahl transferred to the Huskers with high hopes for 2024. Unfortunately, those hopes have been cut short.

In her debut for Nebraska, Bahl injured her knee and had to be helped off the field during the Puerto Vallarta Challenge. On Tuesday, the star pitcher confirmed a serious ACL injury and announced she will redshirt while missing the rest of the season.

“In Game 1 of opening weekend, in Puerto Vallarta, I experienced an injury to my ACL that is going to cause me to support the Red Team in a different way than anticipated for the 2024 season,” wrote Bahl. “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. 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.”

Bahl did conclude that she’s “not going anywhere” and would be back with the team in 2025:

A Nebraska native, Bahl returned to the state with a lot of fanfare after two All-American seasons and two national championships with Oklahoma. She was the ace for the Sooners with a 44-2 record, 0.99 ERA and 397 strikeouts for the program.
