Savanah Uveges will get to play one more season with the Husker soccer team after her medical hardship was awarded, the school announced Thursday.
It will mark the sixth season at Nebraska for the Bartlett, Illinois, native, but just her third where she will play. After arriving on campus for the 2014 season, Uveges did not see playing time during her first three years in Lincoln.
The 5-foot-10 midfielder redshirted her freshman season, then missed all of 2015 and 2016 due to injury. Finally, in 2017, Uveges played in 17 games for the Huskers, including eight starts, and scored her first career goal.
She started all 21 games for NU in 2018 as she tallied 20 points on the season (eight goals, four assists) and received third team All-Big Ten honors.
“I couldn’t turn down the opportunity to play with this team one more year,” Uveges said in a statement from the university. “We have some unfinished business to take care of in 2019 and this is the team to do it! Go Big Red!”
