Ali Viola Bio
Nebraska's first three-time All-American, Ali Viola owns a storied place in Husker history. Viola also ranks among the greatest offensive players in NCAA history. Her 53 career homers rank fifth in NCAA history, and her .760 career slugging percentage ranks sixth. Viola capped her career in 1998 with a 22-homer performance en route to a second conference player-of-the-year award.
Not surprisingly, Viola owns many career NU records, including batting average (.418), home runs (53), RBIs (213), total bases (478) and slugging percentage (.760). Viola owns the top three single-season marks in total bases and RBIs. She also set single-season records for hits (87, 1995), home runs (22, 1998), slugging percentage (.865, 1998) and walks (40, 1998).
Many of Viola's home runs came in clutch moments for NU. Fittingly, Viola smashed a homer in her final at bat at the 1998 WCWS.
