COLUMBIA — Cheyenne Baxter decided to come closer to home to continue her softball career, according to a Missouri Athletics news release.

Baxter is transferring after her freshman year at the University of Nebraska at Omaha to join the Tigers. Baxter is a native of Norborne.

"I'm excited to come to Mizzou because I love the atmosphere in Columbia," Baxter said. "Most of my family is made up of Missouri alums, and it's basically been a dream of mine to play for Mizzou."

She pitched 46 1/3 innings with 15 strikeouts and 21 walks in 2014 while going 4-1 with a 3.78 ERA.

"We're so thankful to have landed Cheyenne," Missouri coach Ehren Earleywine said. "Not only does she have great potential, but she's an in-state kid who will take great pride in playing at Mizzou."

In May, the Missouri softball team announced the departure of four players, including freshman starting pitcher Casey Stangel to the University of Washington.
