Freshman Season [2014]
Rachel Arthur was one of Nebraska’s most versatile players as a freshman, earning playing time on both the infield and the outfield. Arthur started the season opener at shortstop, while also earning a pair of starts in right field and one start as the Huskers’ designated player. Overall, Arthur appeared in 13 games as a freshman, as she also saw action as a defensive replacement and pinch runner.

Although she primarily earned playing time for her defense, Arthur did earn four plate appearances on the season. She was hitless in three at bats but produced one walk and one RBI, while scoring a pair of runs. While starting the season opener against UTEP, Arthur drew a bases-loaded walk in her first career plate appearance, producing her first career RBI. She scored her first career run on Feb. 23 against Boise State and scored again two weeks later against San Jose State on March 7.

Defensively, Armstrong committed only one error in 10 chances at shortstop. Off the field, Arthur was named to Nebraska’s 2014 Tom Osborne Citizenship Team.
