  • EUGENE — The Oregon softball team has signed Nebraska transfer and Keizer native Hailey Decker, head coach Mike White announced on Thursday.
    "We are extremely excited to have Hailey on board," White said. "She will make an immediate impact in the middle of our lineup. We recruited her heavily out of high school and it's very nice to be able to bring an in-state player back to Oregon."
    Decker will be a junior next season for the Ducks and can play immediately. The NCAA does not require softball players to sit out a season when transferring.
    Last season Decker started all 62 games for the Huskers and was named first team all-Midwest Region and first team all-Big Ten after leading Nebraska with a .369 batting average, 21 doubles and 53 RBIs. The infielder also hit 14 home runs, which would have led the Ducks.
    Oregon fans may remember Decker and Nebraska from the NCAA Super Regional series in Eugene in 2013. Then a freshman, Decker went 3-for-10 with two doubles in Nebraska's three-game series win over the Ducks.
