2004 —  As Goodell enters her senior season, she has quietly established herself as one of the best defensive second basemen in the Pac-10. Her ability to make diving catches or turn a double play — Oregon led the conference with 32 double plays ahead of Oregon State (23) — highlighted an impressive junior campaign in which she started 58 games and also earned second-team Pac-10 all-academic honors (3.12 History). Continually making her make as a stingy defender, Goodell often matched her play in the field with timely hitting. In a 4-0 win over then-No. 3 California (Oregon’s first in Berkeley since 2000), the Ducks turned a season-high three double plays (which they matched two weeks later at UCLA) and Goodell finished the game 2-for-2 with a run scored, a double and an RBI. The following day at Stanford, Goodell was 1-for-1 with a sacrifice and two diving plays in the bottom of the fifth inning that kept the Cardinal off the base paths as Oregon pitcher Ani Nyhus faced the minimum number of batters and allowed just one runner to reach base in a 1-0 victory to begin the season 3-0 in conference play. Goodell finished Oregon’s trip to the Bay Area 3-for-5 (.600) with two walks and a sacrifice while the Ducks also had four double plays in the three games. Perhaps no weekend was bigger in Goodell’s career than Oregon’s trip to Seattle and Los Angeles, April 16-18. Goodell opened the weekend by leading the Ducks to a 2-1 win over then-No. 5 Washington with a solo home run in the seventh inning to end the Huskies’ unbeaten conference streak. The following day, the Roseburg native was 1-for-3 with an RBI to guide the Ducks to a 4-3 win over UCLA — their first at Easton Stadium since 1999. On Sunday, with Oregon trailing 2-0 to the Bruins, Goodell hit a two-run home run in the top of the fifth inning to tie the game and force extra innings. Goodell finished the weekend 3-for-10 (.300) with two home runs, four RBI and two runs scored. Led Oregon to its 14th consecutive win of the season — a school record — when she drove in the winning run with an RBI single in the bottom of the seventh inning vs. Northwestern at the Speedline Invitational. Voted team’s best defensive player.

2003 — Was a consistent defensive presence all season for the Ducks, starting 53 of 54 games at second base. In the first three Pac-10 games of the season, Goodell hit 4-for-12 (.333) with three runs scored, and three RBI, including a 2-for-3, two home run performance in the opener at Oregon State which led to her first Pac-10 player of the week honor. Capped the regular season by going 2-for-4 with a home run, a run scored and two RBI in two games vs. Stanford. But, throughout the season, it was her defense that continually led Oregon, most memorably her double play in the eighth inning against No. 4 Michigan that secured the Ducks’ 8-7 win and their third victory over a ranked opponent. Continued her consistent defensive play into the postseason, committing just one error at the NCAA Regionals while also going 4-for-7 (.571) with two RBI, a run scored and two double in the final two games of the tournament. Hit three of her four doubles in the postseason, including one in the tournament opener vs. Penn State.

2002 — Played in 30 of 54 games and started 24 games as a freshman and made huge strides as the season progressed and into spring workouts. Hit the first home run of her career Mar. 2 vs. Southern Utah and finished the game, 2-for-3 with two RBI and a run scored. The day before, Goodell was equally impressive, going 2-for-3 with a run scored and an RBI en route to tallying a season and career-high two doubles in the game. Played sparingly in Pac-10 play, but late in the season had her second home run of the season against Hawaii and finished the game 1-for-3.
