SETTING THE STAGE
Kicking off its 27th season of Pac-12 play, the No. 10-ranked University of Oregon softball team (23-4) welcomes returning NCAA Regional finalist and No. 15 Stanford (22-5) to Howe Field for three games Saturday-Monday, March 23-25.
 
The Ducks come off a busy opening six weeks of action, and this week own the second-most wins in the league behind fellow WCWS returnee Arizona State (29-2).

The last two years, the Ducks have taken the season series from the Cardinal by 2-1 counts in Palo Alto in 2012 and in Eugene in 2011. Prior to that, the Cardinal ran off a 10-game win streak after it swept three-game series in ’10, ’09 and ’08.

Last week, Oregon won its home-opening doubleheader over New Mexico by 10-0 (6 innings) and 4-0 counts.

Overall this season, UO sports a 2-3 mark vs. top-25 foes with wins over WCWS returnee and then-No. 11 LSU (10-2 (5) and then-No. 14 Michigan (13-4), and losses to then-No. 2 Oklahoma (12-0 (5), then-No. 14 Florida (1-0) and then-No. 20 Hawai’i (6-5). Adding in other games vs. 2012 NCAA tourney returnees, UO is 6-3 with its victories over Long Beach State (10-1), San Diego State (3-1, 3-2) and Long Island (8-1).

Oregon opens May by hosting Seattle (Wed., May 1) and NCAA Regional finalist and No. 24 Oregon State (Fri.-Sun., May 3-5). UO then wraps up the regular season at WCWS veteran and No. 2 Arizona State (Thu.-Sat., May 9-11).

RECENT DUCK ACTION
With its 10-0 and 4-0 wins over New Mexico last Wednesday in Eugene, Duck pitchers have combined on seven one-hitters this season after back-to-back efforts by senior Jessica Moore and freshman Cheridan Hawkins.

For the series, the Ducks hit .360 and tied their season high for doubles (4) in the first game of the doubleheader. UO’s 10-0 win in the opener was eighth, double-digit run win, and its ninth victory this season in less than seven innings via the eight-run rule.


DUCK TRACKS
In the Ducks’ home opener vs. New Mexico, sophomore center fielder Janie Takeda was the only Duck to line multiple hits in both games, and now has a team-best 15 on the campaign.

In her 2-for-4 opener, she drilled her second career homer in the seventh inning – a three-run, walk-off shot. In the finale, she singled twice in her three at-bats, and added her team-leading 14th stolen base of the campaign.

On the season she ranks second nationally in batting (.500) behind Oklahoma’s Lauren Chamberlain (.507), and the Pac-12 stolen base leader (14) is 61st nationally and 60th in on-base percentage (.511).

With her 11-game hit streak, junior shortstop Courtney Ceo is one game behind Takeda for the team’s best active streak. The All-Region returnee went 1-for-3 in each game vs. the Lobos in the leadoff spot, and is the Ducks’ all-time career batting average leader (.388). On the national charts this week, she ranks top 20 in runs (16th, 1.15 per game) and batting (18th, .465), and 71st in on-base percentage (.500) and stolen bases (0.46 p/g).

In the second game vs. UNM, junior first baseman Kailee Cuico collected her team-leading fifth game-winning RBI of the season with her two-run, fourth-inning single. This week, she shares the Duck season lead in homers (7) with senior second baseman Kaylan Howard, and the pair are tied for 59th nationally. The pair also rank 68th and 138th nationally in RBI (1.04 / 0.89 p/g) and are tied for 142nd in slugging (.676).

Senior right fielder Samantha Pappas crushed her first four homers of the season in the span of four games in Orlando in early March and now ranks fifth all-time for the Ducks career-wise (34). The returning second-team All-American also stands top 10 all-time for UO in batting (fourth, .358), homers (fifth, 34), RBI (sixth, 133), hits (eighth, 201), stolen bases (eighth, 52) and doubles (10th, 33).

In the circle, senior Jessica Moore staked her fourth complete game of the season in the UNM opener, struck out four, and walked one. Ranked 21st nationally in wins (12) and 29th in ERA (1.28), she owns both of UO’s victories vs. top-25 foes this year vs. then-No. 11 LSU and then-No. 14 Michigan. The returning third-team All-American is the Duck career record holder in strikeouts (789) and wins (85).

Freshman Cheridan Hawkins struck out 13 batters in her 6.1 innings in the finale vs. New Mexico. That ‘K’ total was the sixth-best in school history and three off her personal-high in six innings vs. Boston College (15). The conference leader in opposing batting (.090), saves (3) and fewest hits allowed (18), she also stands fifth in strikeouts (95), while on national charts she is sixth in strikeouts per seven innings (10.8 avg.).

In the opener, junior catcher Alexa Peterson tied Oregon’s third-best all-time mark for doubles in a game (2) in her 2-for-2 day – her fourth multi-hit game among the last six. This week, she ranks 12th nationally in the toughest to strikeout category (1:57 at-bats), and also top 50 in batting (22nd, .456) and slugging (46th, .789).

Redshirt freshman outfielder Alyssa Gillespie continued her tear at the plate with a pinch hit in only plate appearance vs. New Mexico. Since her first collegiate hit on March 1, she has gone 9-for-13, and also walked once. In that span, she stroked a team season in hits vs. James Madison (4-for-4), and her first multi-hit game and double came vs. Boston College (2-for-2) the day before.


MORE TEAM NOTES
- Three Duck starters are hitting +.400 this season – sophomore center fielder Janie Takeda (.500, 43 H, 23 RBI, 14 SB), junior shortstop Courtney Ceo (.471, 40 H, 3 HR, 15 RBI, 12 SB) and junior catcher Alexa Peterson (.456 26 H, 4 HR, 18 RBI).

- Sophomore Janie Takeda owns the team’s best active hitting streak of the season (12 games) – one ahead of Courtney Ceo (11). Kailee Cuico saw her team-season high 18-game streak come to an end at Fresno in early March, and she also had the team’s second-longest in ’12 (13 games) behind Kaylan Howard (15). The two years prior, Samantha Pappas owned the longest streaks in ’11 (12 games) and ’10 (15).

- Duck pitchers are holding opposing hitters to a .177 hitting mark – the team’s second-best since the start of Pac-12 play, and in the same neighborhood of its best marks from 1985 and ’87 (.176 / .179).

- The Duck offense features 10 different players that have knocked in game-winning RBI’s already this year – Kailee Cuico 5, Janie Takeda 4, Courtney Ceo 3, Koral Costa 1, Sara Goodrum 1, Kaylan Howard 1, Danica Mercado 1, Samantha Pappas 1, Alexa Peterson 1, and Jamie Rae Sullivan 1.  

- Three weeks ago, the Ducks smacked +4 homers in four of their six games in the Citrus Classic en route to a 19-1 advantage on the trip. The Ducks tied their school record (6) vs. No. 14 Michigan, and also hit four against both No. 11 LSU and James Madison in five and seven innings, and three vs. Boston College in six innings.

- Season-wise, thanks to Samantha Pappas’s first four homers of the season In Orlando in early March, 11 different players have combined for 37 homers this year – Kailee Cuico (7), Kaylan Howard (7), Alexa Peterson (4), Janelle Lindvall (4), Courtney Ceo (3), Stevie Jo Knapp (2), Jamie Rae Sullivan (2), Janie Takeda (2), Koral Costa (1) and Karine Shaver (1).

- Four of those Ducks with round-trippers are frosh – Lindvall, Costa, Knapp and Shaver - and Knapp’s came in her first collegiate at-bat.

- UO is on record pace for homers per game in 2012 (1.37) as a team. The Ducks are noticeably ahead of their school-record mark from two years ago (1.22, 2011), while last year’s mark ranks third-best (1.05).


2012 DUCK-CARDINAL REWIND
After last year’s series at Stanford, outfielder Samantha Pappas picked up Pac-12 Player of the Week honors after she hit safely in every game, including a pair of two-hit efforts the last two tilts. During the series, she also posted personal season game highs in runs (2), triples (1), total bases (5-twice), homers (1-twice), walks (2) and sacrifice hits (1).

First baseman Kailee Cuico (.545 – 6-for-11) was the only Duck with multiple hits in all three tilts, and hit her fourth homer of the season in the finale. She also connected on her fourth game-winning RBI of 2012 in the first game with her first-inning sacrifice fly.

Catcher Alexa Peterson posted a pair of 2-for-4 days, and collected a game-winning RBI with her third-inning, one-run double in the finale.

Then-senior DP/outfielder Christie Nieto drilled her second homer of the season in the finale - a three-run round-tripper.

Jessica Moore won both of her starts in the opening and final games by 8-5 and 12-8 scores. For her 14 combined innings, she struck out 11, and walked seven. In the second game of the series, Karissa Hovinga staked a complete game in the one-run, 7-6 loss to the eventual NCAA Regional advancer.


ANOTHER STRONG START
UO (23-4) has staked +21 wins in its first 27 games for the fourth straight season under head coach Mike White. Last year’s World Series advancers went 21-6 in that stretch in 2012, and his previous two Super Regional qualifiers staked marks of 23-4 in ’11 and 22-5 in ’10.

DUCK 2013 TEAM PREVIEW
Boasting arguably its deepest roster ever, the World Series returnee Ducks return starters at seven of the eight field positions, and both of its pitchers from last year - senior Jessica Moore and sophomore Karissa Hovinga.

The returning Third-Team All-American from Sutter, Calif., Moore is already the school career record for wins (85) and strikeouts (789), and owns its top-three season strikeout totals (256, 2012; 238, second ‘10; 224, third, ‘11).

Hovinga made three appearances for the Canadian National Team in the World Championships last summer and won both of her starts.

UO sports another All-America returnee in senior Samantha Pappas – the first Duck outfielder to claim All-America honors with her second-team national nod in 2012.

In January, Moore and Pappas were tabbed to the 2013 USA Softball Player of the Year Top 50 Watch List. Subsequent finalist lists will be released on April 10 (Top 25), May 8 (Top 10) and May 22 (Top 3), while the winner will be announced on May 28 before the Women’s College World Series.

Six other Duck returnees have earned various conference and region honors - senior outfielders Allie Burger (All-Region Second Team, All-Pac-12 Freshman Team) and infielder Kaylan Howard (All-Pac-12 Second Team, All-Region First Team), and junior infielders Courtney Ceo (All-Region Second Team, All-Pac-12 Freshman Team), Kailee Cuico (All-Region Second Team) and Alexa Peterson (All-Region First Team, Pac-12 All-Freshman Team) and sophomore outfielder Janie Takeda (Pac-12 All-Freshman Team).


NEW TO THE FOLD
The Ducks said farewell to four seniors last season, yet welcome a talented seven-person newcomer class that featured four players on the ESPN.com Top 100 recruit list – third-most nationally.

That quartet includes catcher Janelle Lindvall (#9, Stevenson Ranch, Calif.), left-handed pitcher Cheridan Hawkins (#11, Anderson, Calif.), infielder Danica Mercado (#27, Temecula, Calif.) and utility player Koral Costa (#63, San Pedro, Calif.).

UO’s other three heralded additions include infielders Stevie Jo Knapp (Chino Hills, Calif.) and Karine Shaver (Waipahu, Hawai’i), and redshirt freshman outfielder Alyssa Gillespie (Hillsboro, Ore.) – a former Gatorade prep state player of the year.


UPCOMING OPPONENT NOTES

No. 15 Stanford (22-5, 0-0)
This week, Stanford ranks second nationally in triples (0.52 per game), and also stands top 50 in ERA (12th, 1.53), fielding (14th, .977), win-loss percentage (21st, .815) and scoring (50th, 5.56 runs per game).

IN THE POLLS
This week, Oregon claimed its eighth straight top-10 national ranking in the regular season’s sixth editions.

Holding steady in the NFCA version, and dropping one spot in the USA Softball edition, No. 10/10 UO was one of three top-10 ranked teams in the Pac-12 this week with a pair of fellow WCWS returnees - No. 2/2 Arizona State and No. 6/5 California.

Overall, Oregon was one of eight league members that ranked top 25 nationally in the USA SB/NFCA polls this week with No. 12/13 UCLA, No. 17/17 Washington, No. 15/16 Stanford, No. 16/22 Arizona and No. -/24 Oregon State.

For comparison's sake, a complete list of Pac-12 rankings from the previous USA SB/NFCA edition follows: No. 2/2 Arizona State, No 5/6 California No. 9/10 Oregon, No. 12/12 UCLA, No. 16/18 Washington, No. 18/16 Stanford, No. 19/14 Arizona and No. -/23 Oregon State

Six other Duck non-conference foes in 2013 were also tabbed top 25 this week by USA SB/NFCA – No. 1/1 Oklahoma, No. 3/3 Florida, No. 13/12 LSU, No. 14/14 Michigan, No. 20/23 Hawai’i and No. 25/20 Nebraska.

Overall in the top five, No. 1/1 Oklahoma, No. 2/2 Arizona State, No. 3/3 Florida and No. 4/6 Alabama held steady for the second straight week. No. 5/4 Texas A&M improved two spots in the NFCA version and one in the USA Softball edition after it swept Arkansas last week (2-1, 7-3, 9-1).

Altogether, Oregon has now been ranked for 47 straight polls by USA Softball and 42 by the NFCA, and its week-by-week USA SB/ NFCA rankings in that stretch follow: 2013 – Preseason 6/5, 2/12 7/9, 2/19 9/11, 2/26 12/10, 3/5 8/9, 3/12 9/10, 3/19 10/10. 2012 - Preseason 11th/16th, 2/14 19/19, 2/21 21/19, 2/28 18/18, 3/6 15/18; 3/13 14/17; 3/20 15/17; 3/27 16/17; 4/3 17/18; 4/10 15/19; 4/17 14/18; 4/25 15/16; 5/2 12/13; 5/9 12/13; 5/16 12/12; 6/12 5/5. 2011 - Preseason 14th/14th, 2/15 14th/14th, 2/22 13th/13th, 3/2 13th/13th, 3/9 15th/14th, 3/16 16th/15th, 3/23 15th/16th, 3/30 14th/15th, 4/5 15th/16th, 4/12 17th/17th, 4/19 19th/21th, 4/26 16th/19th, 5/3 12th/17th, 5/10 11th/14th, 5/17 11th/12th, 6/15 14th/15th. 2010 - 3/8 25th/-; 3/15 25th/-; 3/22 21st/-; 3/29 21st/ RV; 4/5 17th/ RV; 4/12 17th/23rd; 4/19 18th/20th; 4/26 19th/20th; 5/3 20th/22nd; 5/5 20th/22nd; 5/10 21st-t/22nd; 6/15 14th/14th.

PICKS OF THE PAC-12
In early March, freshman pitcher Cheridan Hawkins was rewarded with Pac-12 Softball Pitcher of the Week honors for her impressive weekend in the Citrus Classic.

Helping lead the Ducks to a 6-0 run in the Orlando-hosted event, she logged UO’s second-highest strikeout tally ever (15) in her six-inning shutout of Boston College. That tally was one shy of the school record, and her only hit allowed came with one out remaining (while she only walked one).

In the tourney finale vs. James Madison, the Anderson, Calif., native struck out six, walked one and allowed only two hits vs. the Dukes who picked up votes in last week’s national poll.

Against returning NCAA tourney advancer Long Island, she struck out all six batters she faced in her two innings of relief.

For the third straight weekend she kept her tourney ERA below 0.50 after she logged 0.00 ERA’s the previous two weekends. She allowed only one earned run on the weekend, which ended a 39.0 streak of innings without allowing an earned run. Among the team’s six games combined, she led in ERA (0.45), wins (2), innings (15.2), strikeouts (29) and opposing batting average (.078).

Her award marked the 38th pitcher/player honor in school history, ninth overall in the tenure of head coach Mike White (and the fourth for a Duck pitcher).

Among the current roster, junior outfielder Samantha Pappas and pitcher Jessica Moore are two-time recipients, and sophomore catcher Alexa Peterson and junior outfielder Allie Burger received similar nods in 2011 and ’10, respectively.


SKED CRED
The Ducks face another grueling regular season slate in 2013 with 32 of its 55 games this spring against 16 returning tournament qualifiers from last year’s NCAA tournament field.

Among the Ducks’ 35 opponents, UO will face four other WCWS returnees in national runner-up Oklahoma, Arizona State, California and LSU.

The Ducks will take on three other Super Regional advancers (Arizona, Michigan, Washington), four more NCAA Regional finalists (Florida, Oregon State, San Diego State, Stanford) and five other NCAA tourney qualifiers (Hawai’i, Long Beach State, Long Island, Portland State and UCLA).

Among the team’s 18 other foes this spring, six others were recent NCAA tourney advancers, including Nebraska (’11, ’10, ‘09), Western Michigan (’11), Virginia (’10), Cal Poly (’09), Cal State Fullerton (’09) and UNLV (’09).


2012 – ANOTHER MEMORABLE SEASON
Last spring, Oregon (45-18, 13-9) ended the season ranked a best-ever fifth nationally in the USA Softball and NFCA polls – also the third straight season it ended the slate top 15 in both. Oregon opened the campaign tabbed No. 11 and No. 16, respectably, and stood top 25 all season long.

UO staked its second-most wins ever (45) and placed third in the nation’s top softball conference. The Ducks staked back-to-back top-three Pac-12 finishes for the first time since the Pac-12 expanded to eight teams in 1994. Oregon also beat every league rival in the same season for the third time in that stretch.

Among other conference notes, UO won season series vs. both UCLA and Arizona for the second straight season and third and fourth times ever vs. the 11- and eight-time national champions, respectively. Oregon also topped Stanford in the season series for the second straight year and ninth time overall.

Making its 14th-ever regional trip (and hosting for the first time ever), UO went 3-0 for the third straight year under head coach Mike White, thanks to its mid-May wins at Howe Field vs. Portland State (7-3) and BYU (6-4, 4-1). In late May in Austin, #11 seed Oregon registered its first-ever NCAA Super Regional victories en route to a 2-1 mark and upset of #6 seed Texas (L: 3-1; W: 5-4 (8 innings), 10-6).

Under White, Oregon is now 12-7 in the postseason since 2010 thanks to its 6-3 mark in 2012. In comparison, it went 25-21 in its 11 combined prior postseason trips since 1989.

Overall, UO went 25-15 against NCAA tourney advancers, and 16-13 vs. top-25 teams in 2012, including a 1-0 win mid-April vs. then-No. 1 California (its second upset of a top-ranked foe in White’s tenure).

Last year's Duck offense broke school records for RBI (335) and runs (363), and stood second all-time in batting (.308), doubles (90) and total bases (824), and third in hits (520), walks (207), runs per game (5.76), doubles per game (1.43) and RBI per game (5.32). In the circle, the Ducks' 45 wins in a 63-game season ranked second-best all-time behind its 54 victories in in 1989’s 72-game campaign.


HOME SWEET HOWE
Oregon points towards another impressive home schedule this season after it swept its home-opening doubleheader vs. New Mexico in early March.

Later this spring, UO also points towards three-game home league series vs. Stanford (Sat.-Mon., 3/23-25), Utah (Tue.-Wed., 4/2-3), Arizona (Fri.-Sun., 4/12-14) and Oregon State (Fri.-Sun., 5/3-5), and another non-conference doubleheader vs. Seattle (Wed., 5/1).

The Ducks come off one of their most exciting home slates in 2012, after they went 16-8 in the friendly confines of Howe Field. Oregon hosted its first-ever postseason games and went 3-0 in NCAA Regional play with wins over BYU (twice) and Portland State. In prior months, the Ducks won season series vs. then-No. 14 UCLA (2-1), Boise State (3-0), Portland State (2-0) and Seattle (2-0), and tied season series (1-1) with recent national champions and then-No. 5 Arizona State and then-No. 7 Washington. UO also upset its second top-ranked foe in head coach Mike White’s tenure (California, 1-0), and added another win vs. a top-10 foe and World Series returnee in Missouri.

Sporting a 12-4 home record in 2011, UO ended 15- and 10-game losing streaks to then-No. 12 UCLA and then-No. 10 Stanford in that May, and took each season series for the first time since 2005 and ’07, respectively. In mid-April, UO celebrated its first series sweep of Oregon State since 1994, and third ever. Two weeks before, Oregon’s 2-1 win vs. then-No. 3 ASU in early April marked its seventh top-10 ranked Pac-11 victim at Howe Field the past two years. Earlier this season, UO went 4-0 in non-conference action vs. Weber State (6-1, 6-2) and Utah State (11-3, 9-0).

In 2010, the Ducks went 14-5 in the friendly confines after they rattled off a 12-0 start, then staked at least one win in every home series against the nation's top conference. Oregon's perfect early season run included its first-ever sweep of then-No. 13 Cal in April. The following weekend, UO beat its first top-ranked team, then-No. 1 Washington, since 2004, with its 4-0 victory against the returning national player of the year Danielle Lawrie. Oregon’s other league home victories came vs. then-No. 3 Arizona (2-1) in nine innings when Neena Bryant hit a two-run shot off another of the nation’s top pitchers, Kenzie Fowler.


NATIONAL / REGION / PAC-12 HONOR ROLL
Last May, Oregon was one of five programs nationally (and three in the Pac-12 with ASU and UCLA) that placed all six of its NFCA All-Region nominees on first and second teams, and senior Samantha Pappas and Jessica Moore went on to score second- and third-team All-America honors. UO now has 10 all-time All-America honors altogether, and Pappas was the first Duck outfield recipient, while Moore was the fourth Oregon pitcher.

Altogether during third-year head coach Mike White’s tenure, the Ducks have claimed seven of their 19 first-team all-time selections (and six of its 25 second-team choices) in the honor dating back to 1988. Oregon’s previous All-Region selection record (5) came in ’89, the year it advanced to the Women’s College World Series. That team featured four first-team and one second-team selections.

Among conference honors, 11 players were honored to various All-Pac-12 teams in 2012. All-time for Oregon, UO has racked up 21 first-team honors and 37 second-team selections in the award based on a vote by league head coaches.

TOP DUCK PROFILE
Fourth-year head coach Mike White is widely regarded as one of finest-ever U.S. National Team players and pitching mentors. The 2009 International Softball Congress (ISC) Hall of Fame selection, also is well-known in the area as an integral part of two of Oregon’s greatest teams in 2003 and ‘04 and one of the West Coast’s top prep coaches.

Sporting a program-best 71.2 winning percentage as its head coach, White has compiled a 146-59 mark already after leading the Ducks to its second-ever World Series trip, and its first-ever Super Regional trips the last three seasons.

In 2011, UO tied for third in the final conference standings (42-16, 11-10) after it won league series against then-returning national champion and No. 12 UCLA (2-1), No. 10 Stanford (2-1), at then-returning national runner-up and No. 9 Arizona (2-1), and vs. Oregon State (3-0). UO’s Civil War sweep of OSU was its third ever and first since 1994, and it tied its largest winning margin in the Duck-Husky series with its 8-0 win at then-No. 6 Washington.

The Ducks went 3-0 in the NCAA Regional at State College, Pa., with wins over Albany (3-1), Fordham (2-0) and Penn State (3-1), then advanced to the Super Regional before it fell to eventual NCAA runner-up Florida in Ganesville.

In his first year at the helm, Oregon went 36-21 in 2010 – nearly reverse the previous year’s mark (16-34) – and staked its most Pac-10 wins (8) since its 10 in 2003 and ’04. Oregon beat five different Pac-10 teams – No. 1 Washington, No. 3 Arizona, No. 9 Arizona State, No. 13 California (3 times and its first-ever sweep in the series) and OSU (2) – for the first time since topping all seven in ’04.

The Ducks opened the postseason by upsetting then-No. 7 ranked / No. 8 seeded Georgia Tech twice in Atlanta in the regional, and ultimately ended the year ranked 14th nationally in both polls.

His recent Duck success led to an invite to join the U.S. National Team coaching staff as an assistant coach in the summer of '12. Team USA went 9-1 in the ISC Women's World Championship against the world's best, en route to a silver medal before narrowly losing to Japan, 2-1, in the 10-inning finale.

In his prior Duck stint as an assistant coach, the Ducks lowered their ERA from 3.01 the season prior to his arrival to 2.12 and 1.68, respectively, while its strikeout totals of 347 and 394 – then the best two in school history – far outdistanced its 223 total from 2002.

His first-year pupils included then-freshman Amy Harris who set a single-season strikeout record (180) his first season, while senior Andrea Vidlund led the nation in saves and set a Pac-10 record (11). The next season, newcomer Ani Nyhus was an All-Pac-10 First Team and NCAA Regional All-Tournament choice and two-time conference pitcher of the week. The junior college transfer notched 20 wins (25-12), rewrote the program’s single-season strikeout record (202) and pitched a no-hitter vs. Utah State. Catcher Jenn Poore was also an All-American and All-Pac-10 Second Team honoree in ’04 and drafted into the National Pro Fastpitch (NPF) league.

Since then, he continued to live in Eugene with his family and remained active as an assistant coach for one of the nation’s top programs at Marist High School during the 2008-09 seasons. The program ended 2009 ranked 22nd nationally by USA Today and won consecutive 4A state titles after identical 29-1 seasons. He also coached the Northwest Thunder and Northwest Bullets Amateur Softball Association of America (ASA) youth club teams and served as a private instructor for various elite players of all levels.

As a player, the New Zealand native became a U.S. citizen in 1994 and helped the two national teams claim two gold medals, two silver medals and one bronze in his four trips with New Zealand and two with the United States

In 2000, he helped guide the USA to a bronze medal in the World Championships when he went 2-0 with a 0.89 ERA and 19 strikeouts. In 1999, the U.S. won the silver medal at the Pan Am Games, and he was 3-2 with a 0.68 ERA and 35 strikeouts. He also played on three silver medal Pan-American Games teams in 1995, 1999 and 2003.

Among other honors, the multiple Amateur Softball Association of America (ASA) MVP pitcher and All-American helped lead teams to five ASA national titles and five ISC World Club Championships, and was the 2002 ASA Player of the Year.


MORE LOVE FOR THE DUCK STAFF
Oregon’s highly-regarded staff also includes two other talented coaches that sport equally impressive playing resumes.

White first shared the field with the U.S. National Team as a teammate to third-year assistant coach Blake Miller – a 15-year pro-player, and a member of U.S. National Teams since 2001. As a collegiate coach the past 12 years, Miller has worked with two All-Americans and nine Academic All-Americans, and guided four teams to regional bids and one Junior College World Series trip. His resume includes stops as a head coach at Texas A&M-Kingsville the past three seasons and at Darton College (2006-07) and as an assistant coach at East Tennessee State (2005), Missouri Western State (2004) and Mesa State (2001-03).

The Ducks welcome another of the nation’s most respected coaches and players in first-year assistant coach Chelsea Spencer. A four-year starter for California, the All-America shortstop led the team to a Pac-12 and NCAA title, two more NCAA runner-up finishes and a fourth World Series bid. Afterwards, she was a professional player for six seasons, and four-time All-NPF selection. Her lengthy resume also includes four seasons as the Chabot Community College Head Coach (2006-10) and two seasons as a Michigan State assistant coach (2011-12).


THE ‘CONFERENCE OF CHAMPIONS’
The Pac-12’s moniker is validated by the fact the eight Pac-12 schools have combined to win 24 of the 31 softball NCAA national championships, including the six of the last seven by four different teams. Last year, the Pac-12 advanced five three of the eight World Series qualifiers were from the Pac-12 (#1 seed California, #3 seed Arizona State and #11 seed Oregon); two more teams advanced to the Super Regional (#13 Arizona, #16 Washington); two others were NCAA Regional Finalists (Oregon State, Stanford), and another made the postseason (UCLA).

In January’s Pacific-12 Conference Softball Coaches Preseason Poll, Oregon scored a best-ever third-place position and trailed fellow WCWS returnees California (first) and Arizona State (second). Other teams’ rankings in the nine-team conference included Washington (fourth), Arizona (fifth), Stanford (sixth), UCLA (seventh), Oregon State (eighth) and Utah (ninth).

In recent years under fourth-year head coach Mike White, UO has scored back to back third-place Pac-12 finishes in 2012 and ’11 after it was tabbed seventh in the league preseason polls. The Ducks also bettered their preseason league position (seventh) in his first season when the team placed  sixth in 2010.
