Kaylan Jablonski was a four-year standout for Omaha Skutt High School, leading the SkyHawks to the first two state championships in school history in 2011 and 2013. A four-time Omaha World-Herald All-Nebraska selection, Jablonski garnered first-team honors as a sophomore, junior and senior, and she was the team’s honorary captain as a senior. Also a four-time, first-team Class B all-state selection, Jablonski was one of the top dual-threat (pitching and hitting) players in state history, and she was tabbed as the nation’s No. 50 overall recruit by Student Sports.
Jablonski finished her career with a .557 batting average, an all-class state record, bettering the .514 mark of current Husker Alicia Armstrong. Jablonski also set Class B career records with 25 home runs and 137 RBIs. Forty-three percent of her 201 career hits went for extra bases. In the circle, Jablonski posted an 81-14 career record with a 1.50 ERA and 891 strikeouts in 556.0 innings.
Jablonski led Omaha Skutt to its second state title in three years as a senior in 2013. She posted a 23-2 record for the 28-4 SkyHawks, posting a 0.81 ERA with 278 strikeouts and just 22 walks in 155.2 innings. Jablonski allowed only one run in a five-hit performance in a 2-1 state championship victory over York. At the plate, she batted .610 with 36 walks in her senior season. Her performance earned her a third straight spot on the All-Nebraska first team, and she was a first-team Lincoln Journal Star Super State honoree.
As a junior in 2012, Jablonski helped Skutt to a third-place finish in the Class B state tournament. She boasted a 23-5 record in the circle with 256 strikeouts in 163 innings, while batting .654 with 13 home runs and 52 RBIs. For her efforts, she was a first-team All-Nebraska selection and a second-team Super State pick.
Jablonski excelled offensively and in the circle while leading Skutt to its first Class B state championship as a sophomore in 2011. She was 22-2 in the circle with a 0.90 ERA and 232 strikeouts in 148.1 innings. In her first season as Skutt’s ace, Jablonski allowed just 58 hits. She led the 29-4 SkyHawks in hits (49), while posting a .521 batting average with nine doubles, three home runs, 18 stolen bases and 35 runs. Jablonski earned the first of three straight appointments to the All-Nebraska first team following her sophomore season.
As a freshman in 2010, Jablonski split time in the circle and in the outfield. She produced a .420 batting average (34-for-81) with 22 RBIs, 17 runs scored and three triples. In the circle, Jablonski finished with a 13-5 record with one save, a 2.05 ERA and 125 strikeouts in 99 innings. Despite her freshman status, Jablonski earned first-team all-state accolades and second-team All-Nebraska honors.
Following her career, Jablonski joined fellow freshmen Gina Metzler, Taylor Otte and Madi Unzicker as participants in the Nebraska Coaches Association All-Star Game. Jablonski earned the win in both games of the doubleheader, tossing 8.0 scoreless innings and adding a home run and a triple.
Jablonski played her travel ball for Nebraska Gold, the same team as fellow freshmen Gina Metzler and Madi Unzicker. Nebraska Gold is coached by Kaylan’s father, Dick, and is assisted by Gina’s father, Brad, and Madi’s father, Travis. Kaylan produced nearly 30 wins, 20 home runs and 100 RBIs and hit better than .400 while helping Nebraska Gold qualify for the Premier Girls Fastpitch national championship in the summer of 2013, when the team finished in the top 20. Previously, Jablonski had helped Nebraska Gold qualify for ASA Gold Nationals.
Coach Revelle on Kaylan:
“Kaylan is a fierce competitor who wants the ball when the game is on the line. A natural leader, Jablonski can equally impact the game as a pitcher or as a hitter. Kaylan has trained herself with an intensity that we have rarely seen in a high school athlete, and we couldn’t be more proud to add Kaylan Jablonski to the Nebraska Softball family.”
