2005 Was been a key factor in propelling the Ducks to their third consecutive postseason appearance as her 1.30 ERA in 2005 was lowest in 10 years and also ranked fifth in the Pac-10. Also set the single strikeout record (203) while also becoming the school’s all-time strikeout leader (487). With another fine season in 2005, now ranks in the top 10 in six pitching categories and earned second-team all-Pac-10 honors. Caught fire in the last three weeks of the season, leading the Ducks to shutout wins over No. 2 Arizona, Arizona State, No. 12 UCLA and No. 21 Washington. In an impressive weekend vs. the Arizona schools, Harris pitched a complete game shutout over the Wildcats and came back the following day and pitched 14 scoreless innings in a 17-inning game vs. Arizona State. Started the following day and pitched another complete game shutout win over Arizona State. Against the Wildcats, Harris limited their potent offense to just three hits and struck out nine batters. Earned Pac-10 pitcher of the week honors for the weekend as she had 28 strikeouts and didn’t allow an earned run in 28 innings of work. In all, Harris pitched nine shutouts and ranks sixth all-time with 10 career shutouts. Led the Ducks to six of their seven conference vicotries and also guided the team to a win vs. Wichita State in the postseason.

2004  A wrist injury during the offseason hampered her progression early in the season, but eventually Harris caught her stride and once again made key contributions for the Ducks. Earned her first start of the season Feb. 13 vs. Northridge and in three innings pitched, the Eugene native allowed no hits or runs and struck out two. In a start vs. Coastal Carolina March 6 at the Speedline Invitational in Cleerwater, Fla., Harris dominated, allowing four hits and struck out 10. Unfortunately, the Ducks’ offense stalled and Harris lost the decision as Oregon fell 2-1. Her biggest day came the weekend of April 24 when Oregon hosted then-No. 1 Arizona at Howe Field. Harris came into relief in a 6-1 loss to the Wildcats on Saturday and in two and one thirds innings of work, shut down the Wildcats’ offense, allowing no hits, no runs and no walks while striking out two batters. Her impressive relief work earned her the start the following day and she continued her impressive pitching, giving up just three hits to the Pac-10’s most productive offense and striking out five in five and two thirds innings pitched. Harris and junior pitcher Ani Nyhus combined for the shutout as the Ducks won 1-0. In two appearances (eight innings) vs. the Wildcats in Eugene, Harris gave up three hits and struck out seven batters while also posting a 0.00 ERA. In Oregon’s second consecutive postseason appearance, Harris threw eight and one thirds innings and had 10 strikeouts.

2003 Displayed an uncanny amount of confidence on the mound as a freshman and wasted little time living up to the expectations after a stellar high school career. Led Oregon to back-to-back wins over ranked opponents No. 9 Florida State and No. 17 Georgia for the first time since 1993 en route to earning Pac-10 pitcher of the week honors. Harris threw 13.2 innings in the two wins, striking out nine and allowing just one run and one earned run. With a dominating season, Harris set the single season strikeout record (180) and her 17 wins is the second-best season total ever by a freshman. Harris also had six saves on the season, her most impressive at Washington May 4 when she came into the game with two outs in the bottom of the sixth inning and recorded four consecutive strikeouts to end the game. Also nabbed the save against the Huskies the day before. Pitched a one-hitter in a 2-1 win over Georgia Tech March 7 while striking out 11 batters. In her next appearnce, Harris struck out 10 batters vs. Minnesota. Had her career-best 12 strikeouts vs. Nevada April 22. Made six appearances the most by any pitcher at the Fullerton NCAA Regional site and was fourth overall at the regional with 22 strikeouts. Had her first career shutout vs. No. 17 Stanford May 10, allowing just three hits and striking out five in a 7-0 victory. Pitched five scoreless innings in a 3-0 win over Arizona State April 27 one day after leading the Ducks to a 5-2 win over the Sun Devils to mark the first time since 1998 that Oregon had won back-to-back home conference games.
