Winners of five of its last six games, the No. 12 University of Oregon softball team (35-12, 7-8) returns to the friendly confines of Howe Field for its final two weekends of the regular season.

This weekend, UO welcomes No. 10 Stanford (36-11, 8-7) for single games each day that start Friday, May 6 at 6 p.m., Saturday, May 7 at 2 p.m., and Sunday May 8 at noon. The following week, returning national champion and No. 12 UCLA (31-13, 7-8) heads to Eugene for a three-game set on Thu.-Sat., May 12-14.

The softball world will then tune into the NCAA selection show on Sunday, May 15 at 7 p.m. PT on ESPN-U.


RECENT DUCK ACTION
In Tucson last weekend, the Ducks took the season series with eight-time national champion Arizona for the third time in the rivalry dating back to 1984. Oregon won the openers, 2-0 and 12-6, then came back from a 5-0 deficit in the finale to narrowly fall, 7-6.

The weekend before, UO topped Oregon State, 7-1, 7-4 and 8-1, for its first Civil War sweep since 1994 (and fourth since the first series in 1974).

Sporting the third-most overall wins in the Pac-10, No. 12 Oregon has posted eight wins against top-20 teams, including three top-10 Pac-10 rivals – then-No. 9 Arizona (twice), then-No. 3 ASU and then-No. 6 Washington.

In those victories:
- UO pounded out season highs in home runs (5) and hits (16) in a 12-6 win over the Wildcats, while its 2-0 shutout was its sixth win in the last 12 contests between the two teams (compared with a 16-79 mark in the series overall).
- UO one-hit the Sun Devils, 2-1, three weeks ago – then the nation’s leader in hitting (.380) and second in runs per game (8.76).
- UO beat the returning World Series advancer Huskies, 8-0, in the finale – its largest win in the series dating back to 1993.


AROUND THE LEAGUE
The Pac-10 continues to confirm its reputation as the Conference of Champions with three teams already topping the national polls this season - Arizona, ASU and UCLA. UO is one of seven league members ranked top 12 nationally this week, and the eighth and final program (OSU) received a vote in the national poll three weeks ago.

As expected before the season, the Pac-10 is unquestionably the deepest league in the nation. Since its early-April loss to UO, No. 1 ASU (45-5, 12-3) has won 12 games in a row and now leads the league by two games. No. 7 California (34-9, 10-5), has won five in a row and has moved into second in the league chase.

No. 12 Oregon (35-12, 7-8) is one of five teams separated by one game in the fight for third place. No. 10 Stanford and No. 11 Arizona are tied for third at 8-7, and UO is tied one game back with No. 11 Washington (32-10, 7-8) and No. 12 UCLA (31-13, 7-8).


SERIES HISTORY
Stanford has swept the Ducks the last three seasons, while UO won the season series in four of the previous five years. Those 2-1 Duck advantages came in 2007, ’06, ’04 and ’03, and in two of those years, head coach Mike White served as an Oregon assistant coach (2003-04).

In other years of multi-game series going back to the first in 1991, UO has won six others (’91 (2-0), ‘92 (4-0), ’93 (2-0), ’95 (4-0), ’00 (2-1), ’03 (2-1)); the two teams tied twice in 1996 (1-1), ’97 (2-2); and Stanford owned edges five other seasons (in 1998 (3-1), ’99 (3-1), ’01 (3-0), ’02 (1-2) and ’05 (2-0)).

All-time, Oregon owns a slim 31-29 lead in the series that started in 1984, while the first three-game series was staged in 1991.


RECENT DUCK HEROES
In the Ducks’ 2-0 series opening win last weekend at then-No. 9 Arizona, seniors Monique Fuiava and Kaitlin Vitek collected RBI’s with a bases-loaded walk and sacrifice fly in the seventh-inning, and Fuiava’s was her team-leading ninth game-winning RBI of 2011.

In the second game, the offense posted season highs in homers (5) and hits (16), and was led by junior Kelsey Chambers (4-for-4, 2 HR, 2 doubles).

In the finale, Fuiava launched a three-run round-tripper to move up UO career lists in homers (sixth, 26) and RBI (ninth, 101), and she also now stands fourth in doubles (36).

For the series, sophomore Samantha Pappas led UO in hitting (.500, 5-for-10, 3 BB), and three others topped .300 – Fuiava (.375, 3-for-8, 1 2B, 1 HR, 5 RBI, 4 BB), Chambers (.364, 4-for-11, 2 HR, 3 RBI, 1 SB) and freshman Courtney Ceo (.364, 4-for-11, 1 SB).

On the mound at then-No. 9 Arizona, sophomore Jessica Moore (18-7) pitched her fourth shutout of the season in the opener and beat a top-20 team for the fourth time in '11. All-time, the decision moved her to eighth for UO for wins in a season (18) and ninth career-wise in shutouts (9).

Junior Samantha Skillingstad (9-3) got the win in relief in the middle game and now ranks 10th all-time for Oregon in career wins (32).


SEASON SCORECARD
In its first four, three-game series in Pac-10 play, UO has swept Oregon State, 3-0; topped then-No. 9 Arizona, 2-1; went 1-2 vs. a pair of top-10 teams - then-No. 3 Arizona State (W 2-1, L, 2-0, 10-5) and at then-No. 6 Washington (W, 8-0; L, 3-2, 4-2) - then dropped all three games at then-No. 13 Cal (5-0, 2-0, 5-2).

In other top-20 tilts, UO opened the year with wins vs. then-No. 16 BYU (5-0) and then-No. 19 Texas A&M (3-2). In Las Vegas the next week, it handed World Series returnee and then-No. 9 Hawai’i its first loss of the season (13-5, 5 innings). Two weeks later in Orlando, it split with then-No. 1 Alabama (10-0 loss, 5 innings) and then-No. 17 Louisiana-Lafayette (5-2 win).

Against 2010 NCAA tourney returnees, UO is 11-10 overall this season with added wins vs. Illinois (2-1), Illinois State (6-0, 6 innings) and North Carolina (1-0), and a loss to Virginia (3-2).


CARDINAL SEASON REVIEW
In Pac-10 play this year, the Cardinal has won Pac-10 series vs. OSU (3-0), then-No. 11 Washington (2-1), and then-No. 6 UCLA (2-1), and lost series to then-No. 12 California (1-2) and then-No. 7 Arizona (0-3).

In its 28-4 non-conference run, the Cardinal’s key wins came over then-No. 23 BYU (7-4), then-No. 3 Tennessee (5-0) and then-No. 24 Kentucky, while its four non-conference losses came to then-No. 9 Hawai’i (6-1), Nebraska (3-2), Memphis (2-1) and San Diego State (3-2 (8)).

Team-wise, Stanford stands top 50 nationally in win-loss pct. (19th, .761), batting (24th, .318), stolen bases (23rd, 1.74 p/g), ERA (24th, 1.83), fielding (32nd, .971), doubles (43rd, 1.39 p/g) and scoring (43rd, 5.52 p/g).

All-America junior infielder Ashley Hansen made the USA Softball Player of the Year Top 25 Watch List in April, and leads the nation in doubles (0.46 p/g). She also ranks top 30 this week in toughest to strikeout (second, 1:49.3), batting (fifth, .486), on-base pct. (12th, .55) and slugging (28th, .811).

Other Cardinal players ranked top 60 nationally include sophomore pitcher Teagan Gerhart (saves, 26th, 3; wins, 34th, 20; stolen bases, 41st, 0.52 p/g; ERA, 44th, 1.61; strikeouts, 45th, 197) and junior outfielder Sarah Hassman (stolen bases, 11th, 0.67 p/g; runs, 11th, 1.15 p/g; on-base pct., 52nd, .506)

Earlier this year after the team’s 2-1 weekend vs. UCLA, Hansen and Gearhart were named the Pac-10 Player and Pitcher of the Week in early April. Hansen hit .615 with two doubles and 2 RBI, and Gerhart, struck out 12 in her 13 innings.

Glancing back at last year’s honor roll, Hansen was a second-team All-American and a first-team All-Pac-10 pick with Hassman, while Gerhart and pitcher/infielder Jenna Rich were All-Pac-10 Freshman Team choices.

Fifteenth-year head coach John Rittman (634-288-3) has led Stanford to 14 straight winning campaigns, 13 consecutive NCAA trips, 11 40-win seasons, a pair of World Series trips and one conference title.


HOME SWEET HOWE
In mid-April, UO raised its home season record to 8-2 after its first sweep of Oregon State since 1994. Two weeks before, Oregon’s 2-1 win vs. then-No. 3 ASU in early April marked its fourth, top-10 ranked victim at Howe Field in as many Pac-10 series (going back to 2010). 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.


FURTHER UP DOWN THE ROAD
Next week, the Ducks wrap up the regular season vs. No. 12 UCLA (Thu.-Sat., May 12-14), while the 64-team NCAA selection show follows on Sunday, May 15 at 7 p.m. PT on ESPN-U.

Each weekend of the postseason is double-elimination play with 16, four-team regionals held Thursday-Saturday, May 19-22; eight, two-team, two-day Super Regionals held Thursday-Sunday, May 26-29, and the Women’s College World Series in Oklahoma City, Okla., Thursday-Wednesday, June 2-8.

IN THE POLLS
In this week’s 13th edition of the national polls, the Ducks jumped to No. 12 and No. 17 nationally by USA Softball and the NFCA.

Oregon has now been ranked for 24 straight editions by USA Softball and 19 straight polls by the NFCA. UO's week-by-week NFCA/USA SB rankings this year follow: 4/26 (16/19), 4/19 (19/21), 4/12 (17/17), 4/5 (15/16), 3/30 (14/15), 3/23 (15/16), 3/16 (16/15), 3/9 (15/14), 3/2 (13/13), 2/22 (13/13), 2/15 (14/14), Preseason (14/14).

Among this week's two editions, nine Duck foes were ranked top 25 (USA SB / NFCA) - Arizona State (1/1), Alabama (5/6), California (7/8), Stanford (10/10), Arizona (13/11), Washington (11/13), UCLA (14/12), Texas A&M (22/22) and Louisiana-Lafayette (25/24).

Three other Duck opponents – BYU, Illinois State and Pacific - received vote(s) in at least one poll.

Overall in both editions, Arizona State ranked first in both polls for the second straight week after it swept Oregon State at home. Michigan held steady at No. 2 after beating Wisconsin twice; now No. 3/5 Tennessee swept Arkansas; No. 4/3 Texas went 2-1 against Oklahoma; No. 5/6 Alabama didn’t play because of the area tornado/thunderstorm damage last week, and 6/4 Florida swept South Carolina on the road.

POWER SURGE
Oregon’s long-ball bats have continued to spark the offense as 12 players have combined to sock 62 homers (for a 1.32 home run per game ratio). Compare that with last year’s total (51) in 57 games by 13 players that ranked fourth-most overall in school history. From a historical standpoint, UO’s highest overall total (69) came in a 69-game season in 1999 (for a 1.0 per game ratio).

With her two homers vs. then-No. 9 Arizona last week, junior Kelsey Chambers now has a career-high 10 homers this year – one away from the eighth-best mark all-time for UO in a season (11).

The week before, senior Kaitlin Vitek hit three homers vs. Oregon State to also give her a career-best (8), and tie for second on the team with senior Monique Fuiava .

Other Ducks that have cleared the fences include sophomore Samantha Pappas (7), freshman Kailee Cuico (6), junior Christie Nieto (5), freshmen Courtney Ceo (5) and Alexa Peterson (4), junior Lindsey Chambers (3), and sophomores Kaylan Howard (3), Jessica Moore (2) and Allie Burger (1).

On the career list, Fuiava stands sixth all-time for the Ducks (27), while Pappas hit 11 homers last year and tied for eighth all-time for UO in a season.

Three Ducks have connected on three grand slams this year: senior Monique Fuiava in a win at PSU, junior Christie Nieto vs. then-No. 9 Hawai’i, Kailee Cuico vs. UNLV. In prior years, Fuiava connected on a grand slam as a freshman vs. Cal Poly, and last year a pair of then-freshmen turned the trick - Samantha Pappas vs. Idaho State and Kaylan Howard in a NCAA regional win at then-No. 7 Georgia Tech.


AT AN ALL-TIME HIGH
Under head coach Mike White ’s tutelage, the Duck pitching staff is on another near season-record pace for strikeouts (359, 304.0 innings (1.18 K/Inning)). The current record belongs to the same staff last year (470, 381.2 innings (1.23 K/Inning)) that easily topped the former mark (394, 432.2 innings, 57 games) set White’s former crew in 2004.

ON THE CHARTS
Last weekend at then-No. 9 Arizona, senior Monique Fuiava launched a three-run round-tripper to move up UO career lists in homers (sixth, 26) and RBI (ninth, 101), and also stands fourth now in doubles (36).

On the mound, junior Samantha Skillingstad was credited with her 32nd career win and now ranks 10th all-time for UO career-wise.

Sophomore Jessica Moore (18-7) pitched her fourth shutout of the season in the 2-0 opening win, and the decision moved her to eighth all-time for UO for wins (18) and ninth career-wise in shutouts (9). She has also struck out 155 batters this season - ninth-best all-time for Oregon - a category she already owns the school record in from last year (238).

For comparison’s sake last year, the Ducks ranked 33rd nationally in batting (.299) and 34th in slugging (.460), and 47th in home runs per game (0.89).

On the individual front in ‘10, outfielder Allie Burger ranked 72nd in batting (.387), and right fielder Samantha Pappas stood 82nd nationally in batting (.383), 88th in RBI (0.84 per game), 90th on-base percentage (.472), 123rd in slugging (.641) and 131st in home runs (11).

Jessica Moore was equally easy to find last season on the final NCAA pitching stat charts in strikeouts (36th, 8.7 per 7 inning average), total strikeouts (46th, 238), ERA (52nd, 1.86) and fewest hits allowed (160th, 6.38 per 7 innings). The Sutter, Calif., native ranked 11th nationally in saves (4), and was followed by teammate Brittany Rumfelt (101st-t, 2).


DOUBLE YOUR FUN
The Ducks again sport a pair of twins on their roster in 2011 – all four of whom have frequently started the past two seasons.

The fraternal set of seniors Ashley Kivett and Cortney Kivett sisters have combined to start 294 games (137/157) in the infield their first three years. Cortney paced the Pac-10 in steals as a freshman with UO’s fourth-most ever in a season (33), while Ashley was one of the team’s leading hitters in Pac-10 play in ’10 with her .273 average and ranked second in the Pac-10 in runners picked off (4).

The identical sophomore pair of Kelsey Chambers and Lindsey Chambers have combined for 32 homers (23 / 9) in their careers, including 10 and three, respectively, this season. They saw the most action among newcomers as freshmen when Kelsey started in right field the first half of ‘09, then started 24 games in the remainder at second base (and had two more at shortstop), while Lindsey’s starts came in the left side of the infield with 18 at third base and 22 at shortstop.


PICKS OF THE PAC-10
In early March, sophomore Jessica Moore became the second Duck hurler to stake multiple Pac-10 Pitcher of the Week honors in her career and 34th overall all-time (including pitcher and player honors).  

The Sutter, Calif., native went 3-0 the week before in the Libby Matson Tournament in Stockton, Calif. In the four-game tourney, she led UO in wins (3), strikeouts (19), ERA (0.00), innings (16.0) and opponent batting average (.115); and allowed three hits or less in all three of her starts

Moore is one of four Ducks on the current roster that have scored previous honors, as the quartet of senior first baseman Monique Fuiava and sophomore outfielders Allie Burger and Samantha Pappas all staked honors last year.

Last year, Moore picked up her first honor after she helped the team to a 6-0 record vs. Idaho State, Seattle and at Portland State. Altogether that week, Moore went 3-0, averaged more than two strikeouts per inning (29 / 14 innings), and led the team in strikeouts (29), opposing batting average (.082), ERA (0.00), innings (14.0), appearances (3) and starts (2). She also combined with Samantha Skillingstad on a five-inning perfect game in the second Idaho State meeting, also the 18th no-hitter in school history.


HONOR ROLL
Last May, Oregon’s talented ‘Fab Four’ freshman class was rewarded for its impressive debut seasons with a host of All-Pac-10 and All-Region honors.

In the vote by league head coaches, right fielder Samantha Pappas picked up UO’s second Pac-10 Freshman of the Year honor, and was one of only two first-year players named to the 15-person All-Pac-10 First Team. Pitcher Jessica Moore was chosen to the All-Pac-10 Second Team and became UO’s second freshman pitcher to receive All-Pac-10 acclaim after Katie Wiese was a first-team pick in 1989.

Altogether, UO has staked 18 first-team and 34 second-team honors in the award dating back to 1988.

Freshman left fielder Allie Burger , sophomore shortstop Kelsey Chambers , sophomore pitcher Samantha Skillingstad , and senior center fielder Neena Bryant added All-Pac-10 honorable mention acclaim, and the latter player claimed her second All-Pac-10 honorable mention nod after she received All-Pac-10 Second Team acclaim the last two seasons (2008, ’09).

All three aforementioned first-year Ducks (Burger, Moore and Pappas) were tabbed to the All-Pac-10 Freshman Team, and second baseman Kaylan Howard was chosen as an honorable mention.

On the NFCA All-Pacific Region squads, Pappas was tabbed to the 12-person All-Region First Team, and pitcher Jessica Moore and left fielder Allie Burger were named to the 12-person All-Region Second Team.

Dating back to 1988, UO has staked 13 first-team and 21 second-team All-Region laurels. Its three-player tally in 2010 matched its third-highest count ever, and was its most since four players received similar honors in 2007 (while its all-time high (5) came in 1989).


NEW TO THE FOLD
The Ducks will say farewell to five seniors after this season, yet will welcome a six-person newcomer class next fall. The group of prep seniors includes pitcher Karissa Hovinga (Ralston, Neb.), outfielders Alyssa Gillespie (Hillsboro, Ore.), Sara Goodrum (Red Mountain, Ariz.) and Janie Takeda (Placentia, Calif.), and infielders Hannah Melick (Auburn, Wash.) and Jamie Rae Sullivan (Huntington Beach, Calif.).

An all-state first-team pick in 2009 and ’10 and second-team choice in ’08 for Glencoe High School, Gillespie helped lead her team to the state title the last three seasons, and also played for the Northwest Blaze club team, the 2009 ASA national tourney champions.

Goodrum was an All-Class 5A state team honorable mention as a junior, and a 5A All-Region East Valley pick the last two seasons for Red Mountain High School.

Hovinga has been an all-class all-state first-team choice the last three seasons, and helped her Pappillion team to the state title last fall and also as a freshman, to go along with four district titles and two conference crowns (2008, ’09).

Melick was a South Puget Sound League First-Team pick as a freshman and junior, and Second-Team choice as a sophomore for Auburn High School, and has played for the Washington Ladyhawks club that placed third in the 2010 Champions Cup.

Sullivan was a Sunset-League First-Team pick as a junior for Marina High School and an All-CIF Second-Team choice as a sophomore, while her Firecrackers 18 Gold club team won the Canada Cup and Colorado Fireworks Tournament in 2009 and 2010.

Takeda is a three-time all-league first-team pick for El Dorado High School and was her team's MVP last spring and an All-County Second-Team honoree, while her OC Batbusters club took third place in the 2010 Premier Girls Softball Tournament.


SKED CRED
The Ducks face another grueling schedule in 2011 with 26 of their 55 games against 14 returning 2008 NCAA qualifiers. That list is a who’s who in collegiate softball, and includes last year’s national champion and runner-up (UCLA / Arizona); two more Women’s College World Series qualifiers (Hawai’i, Washington); five additional regional champions (Alabama, ASU, BYU, California, Louisiana-Lafayette); three more regional finalists (North Carolina, Notre Dame, Texas A&M); and two additional tourney qualifiers (Stanford, Virginia).

This week’s, UO’s RPI is 20th nationally among the 289 programs nationwide, and current collegiate softball RPI rankings are available at the http://web1.ncaa.org/app_data/weeklyrpi/2011WSBrpi1.html website.

Glancing at the preseason NFCA and USA Softball polls, 13 of UO’s 32 opponents this season were ranked, including five in the top 10. That list includes UCLA (1/2), Arizona (2/1), Alabama (6/3), Hawai’i (8/13), Washington (10/11), California (12/12), Arizona State (13/10), BYU (16/20), Louisiana-Lafayette (17/21), Stanford (20/18), Texas A&M (21/19), Illinois (24/24) and North Carolina (25/-), and two others received votes – Illinois State and Oregon State.


TOP DUCK PROFILE
Second-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 68.3 winning percentage as its head coach, White has compiled a 71-33 mark already after leading the Ducks to its first-ever Super Regional trip last season.

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.

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 three other talented coaches that sport equally impressive playing resumes.

Second-year Duck coach and former UCLA All-American Lisa Dodd has earned similar respect as a Nevada assistant coach after she helped them to a WAC Conference title, top-20 rankings and NCAA bid in 2008. As a pitcher and infielder, the 2007 NFCA Second-Team All-American starred on Bruin teams that claimed three straight WCWS trips and a Pac-10 title in 2006. She went on to play professionally in Italy in 2007 and ’08, while as a prep she was tabbed the 2003 Gatorade National Prep Player of the Year.

White first shared the field with first-year assistant coach Blake Miller when the latter was a top infielder for the U.S. National Team. As a collegiate coach the past 10 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 rounded out one of their most experienced coaching staffs ever with the addition of Julie Strand as a volunteer assistant coach. The Eugene native joined the program after serving the last two seasons as the head coach at Southern Utah (2009-10) and four seasons as its assistant coach (2005-08). In that stretch, she helped the Thunderbirds advance twice to the NCAA Tournament (2006-07) after three Mid-Con Conference tourney championships (2005-07) and a pair of regular season league titles (2005-06). She also served as an assistant coach at the University of Southern Colorado, and was a two-time all-league catcher for Colorado State University-Pueblo.

PAC-10 PRESEASON POLL
In the annual Pacific-10 Conference Softball Coaches Preseason Poll, defending national champion UCLA and runner-up Arizona tied for first place after they each received 46 points and four-first-place votes. Arizona State followed in third place with 30 points, and was trailed by California (fourth-tie, 26), Washington (fourth-tie, 26), Stanford (sixth, 22), Oregon (seventh, 21) and Oregon State (eighth, 7).


THE ‘CONFERENCE OF CHAMPIONS’
The Pac-10’s moniker is validated by the fact the eight Pac-10 schools have combined to win 23 of the 28 softball NCAA national championships, including the last five by four different teams. Last year, the Pac-10 advanced six teams to the 16-team Super Regional level, including three of the eight World Series qualifiers (national champion UCLA, runner-up Arizona and defending champion Washington).
