2006 Season Outlook
Trisha Tannahill returns to anchor a talented Nebraska outfield in 2006. In her final season, Tannahill will again be an integral part of the Husker offense after earning All-Big 12 honors each of the past two seasons.
Tannahill rebounded from a slow start to the 2005 season to finish with a .275 average. She also showed the most power of her career, hitting a career-high three home runs, one more than her two-year total entering the season. Tannahill also showed patience at the plate, drawing 15 walks en route to posting a .347 on-base percentage.
Batting in the middle of the Huskers' order, Tannahill drove in 25 runs a season ago, including 13 two-out RBIs. She also finished with 14 extra-base hits and her proven production and added power have her poised to be one of the most potent bats in the lineup.
One of three seniors that hail from the state of Kansas, Tannahill is one of the most consistent Huskers, according to Coach Rhonda Revelle. That consistency, combined with Tannahill's increased power make her a prime candidate to hit third or fourth in the Husker lineup in 2006.
Besides being a power threat, Tannahill also brings good speed to a fast Nebraska team, as she was 23-of-27 on stolen bases the past two years. Tannahill's speed also helps her defensively, where she has been very solid. Her speed gives her great range to go along with a great arm, as Tannahill committed only three errors in 72 chances last season.
