Billie Andrews continues to receive recognition ahead of the 2023 season with the latest honor coming from D1Softball on Tuesday, as she was named No. 6 on the Top 10 shortstops.

Andrews was named No. 58 on D1Softball’s Top 100 list earlier this month. The sophomore also received honors from Softball America, who named Andrews No. 45 on its Preseason Top 100 list as well as a preseason third-team All-American as an at-large selection. 

Andrews earned a spot on the Extra Innings Extra Elite 100 at the No. 46 spot. The native of Gretna, Neb., was also listed at No. 8 on the Extra Innings preseason shortstops list earlier this month. 

Andrews is coming off of a record-breaking sophomore season in 2022. The second-team All-Big Ten selection recorded 20 home runs during the year, setting a sophomore school record and finishing the season ranked 13th in the NCAA. Andrews was named an NFCA third-team All-Midwest Region selection and was voted the Nebraska Female Athlete of the Year. The Gretna, Neb., native finished the 2022 campaign with a .330 batting average which included 59 hits and 51 RBIs. Andrews started every game at shortstop for the Huskers and finished the year with a .925 fielding percentage helping Nebraska to its first Big Ten Tournament title. 

The junior was also a leader in the classroom, claiming CoSIDA Academic All-District first team honors. Andrews was named a Big Ten Distinguished Scholar and was an Academic All-Big Ten honoree.
