Coach Revelle on Keana:  “From the first swing we saw from KP (Keana Pola), we knew we wanted her to be a Husker softball player.  As we got to know her, we knew we wanted her to become a member of the Nebraska family.  This high-character, high-integrity person is also a really good softball player, who we look forward to getting on campus.  KP has been a part of a national championship team, and that kind of experience is invaluable.   We are anxious for her to bring that winning attitude to the University of Nebraska.”
