Carlie Muhlbach Commits to Nebraska
When Carlie Muhlbach (2025) announced her commitment to Nebraska it ended a long process that she had thought about since she was 4-years old. The Gretna High School junior committed to the Huskers on September 3rd, just two days after college coaches are allowed to contact high school juniors. “There were various schools that I was interested in, but Nebraska was always at the top of my list”, said Muhlbach.
Nebraska felt like home and Muhlbach loved how that feeling she got when she was on campus. The Husker facilities and coaches were also a major factor in her commitment. “The facilities were amazing, the program was great, and the coaches were phenomenal”, said Muhlbach. “It seemed like I had known them for years when I first talked to them!”.
Nebraska coach Rhonda Revelle and the Huskers are getting a competitive teammate that can hit for power. Muhlbach leads Gretna, the No. 1 ranked team in Nebraska, in home runs (8) and slugging percentage (.980) while primarily playing catcher, but also filling in at various other positions.
Muhlbach’s love for softball started at a young age. A 4-years old she started playing T-ball and grew into playing travel or club softball from there. She played on multiple travel teams before joining the Nebraska Gold 16u National team. One of her fondest memories was when her Nebraska Gold team won the World’s Fastpitch Champions Tournament in Kansas.
“The hard work, dedication, and commitment really paid off for everyone in the end! It was a fantastic way to wrap up our season”, said Muhlbach.
Outside of softball Muhlbach throws the shot put and discus in track. She also enjoys spending time with her dad watching movies, sports, and traveling.
