2010 (Senior)
Anna White started every game of her senior season to close a career that saw her perform as one of NU’s most important midfielders. White started 65-of-77 career matches and provided strong defense and offensive assistance from the midfield.

White contributed her second career assist on Sept. 10 in a 3-0 victory at Arizona, while she also attempted 15 shots on the season. Defensively, the senior helped shut out five opponents as Nebraska went 13-7-1 and finished third in the Big 12 race.

2009 (Junior)
Following 12 starts in each of her previous two seasons, White started all 20 games for the Huskers and became one of the team's most reliable players in 2009. Her aggressive defense helped NU to three shutouts on the season.

White also got herself in the offensive flow with six shots on goal, including two each against Villanova and Baylor and one against Oklahoma and Missouri. She totaled 19 shots overall, more than doubling her sophomore total of nine.

2008 (Sophomore)
A gritty competitor, White appeared in 19 games and made 12 starts during the 2008 season. White posted a goal in Nebraska's 2-1 upset of No. 8 Texas and added her first career assist in the regular-season finale against Iowa State on Oct. 31.

2007 (Freshman)
White completed the 2007 season as one of several freshmen who made major contributions to the Huskers. White played in 17 games, making 12 starts, but a midseason shoulder injury limited her effectiveness.

White displayed a physical style early in the season, as her control of the midfield helped the Huskers to early home wins, including a 5-1 victory over Saint Louis on Sept. 21.

White was in and out of the starting lineup until her performance against Lamar on Oct. 12. White cranked out four shots against the Cardinals, putting three on goal, including her first career goal. White was a starter for the final six games of the season, accumulating 24 shots, including 11 on goal.

White also gained statewide honors as the 2005 Class 1 Co-Offensive Player of the Year in Missouri, the 2006 All-Western District Offensive Player of the Year, the 2007 Class 1 Co-Player of the Year and a three-time all-conference and three-time first-team all-district selection.
