The Bellevue University softball program, under the direction of head coach Michala Cimino, announced today the signing of outfielder/second baseman Madi Geary (Omaha, Neb./Millard South HS) to continue her athletic and academic careers at BU beginning in the fall of 2019.
Geary, the daughter of Greg and Toni Geary, earned Metro Conference all-division honors in 2018 while receiving honorable mention accolades in 2016 for Millard South High School under coach Steve Kerkman. She finished sixth in the state for home runs with five, helping lead the Patriots to the 2016 Nebraska State Class A softball title.
Geary finished her career at MSHS with a .362 batting average, six home runs, 18 doubles, 41 RBIs and 7 stolen bases.
"We are excited to add such a caliber of an athlete as Madi who can play different roles and her enthusiasm for the game will be contagious," said Cimino.
In the classroom, Geary earned NCPA academic all-state honors and was a three-time Metro Conference all-academic selection.
Geary played club softball for Nebraska Gold under coaches Scott Gerdes and Larry Swift, helping her team to a sixth-place finish at the 2018 ASA 18U Nationals in St. Louis, Mo.
Both her parents were collegiate athletes at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Mother, Toni, was an All-American second baseman for the Mavericks and holds the UNO records for runs scored (209) and most hits (322) and ranks fourth with a .388 career batting average. Father, Greg, was a three-time all-conference outfielder for the Mavericks.
Geary becomes the second signee in the 2019-20 class, joining earlier signee pitcher Cory Carrillo (Newbury Park, Calif./Newbury Park HS).
The Bruins will open the 2019 season at the Cowtown Classic in Fort Worth, Texas on Feb. 8-9.
