Lincoln - Senior outfielder Lizzy Aumua was honored as the 2005-06 recipient of the Richard Raimondi Memorial Scholarship in an on-field ceremony prior to the Nebraska softball team’s opening game of the Husker Fall Classic against defending national champion Michigan on Friday.

 

The Raimondi Memorial Scholarship is awarded annually to a member of the Husker softball team. The scholarship was created in December of 2001 to honor the father of former NU softball player Melanie Raimondi. It was the first fully endowed scholarship for a female athlete at Nebraska.

 

Aumua is a senior sociology major who carries a cumulative 3.927 grade-point average in the classroom. A native of Santa Fe Springs, Calif., Aumua has been named to the Big 12 Commissioner’s Honor Roll in each of her two semesters at Nebraska. She is scheduled to graduate in May 2007, when she plans to move back to her native California with her husband, Wes, and attend dental school.

 

Aumua joins fellow recipients of the award Amber Burgess (2002), KoKo Tacha (2003) and Sheena Lawrick (2004).
