SETTING THE STAGE
Riding a 12-game win streak, the No. 8-ranked University of Oregon softball team (19-3) heads to the Fresno State Classic this Friday-Saturday, March 8-9.

Looking ahead to its fifth and final season-opening tournament, the Ducks will play four games in two days at the Bulldog Diamond. UO will play its second tilt this year vs. NCAA returnee San Diego State, along with Fresno State (13-10), Iowa State (9-6) and St. Mary’s (4-9).

Two weeks ago, UO beat the returning Mountain West Conference champion Aztecs by a 3-1 score in Palm Springs. Last year, UO topped the host Bulldogs in the same tourney, 5-4, thanks to a two-run comeback in the seventh inning.

Oregon also won its last meetings vs. Iowa State in ’04 (8-0), and against St. Mary’s in ’07 (10-1).

In recent days, two Ducks were honored for their play last weekend in the Citrus Classic - freshman pitcher Cheridan Hawkins (Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week), and All-American and senior outfielder Samantha Pappas (Collegiate Sports Madness Player of the Week).

With the first month of the season under their belt, the Ducks stand second in the Pac-12 Conference in overall wins (19), trailing only fellow WCWS returnee and No. 3 Arizona State (21-1). With eight of the nine conference teams ranked top 25 again this week, the Pac-12 again looms as the nation’s top softball league, and conference play starts in two weeks at the end of March.


AROUND THE CORNER
Next week, the Ducks look forward to their home opener at Howe Field – a doubleheader vs. New Mexico, Wednesday, March 13 at 2 p.m.

Like all Oregon softball doubleheaders in ’13, fans that pay for one game, get into the second game for free. Various St. Patrick’s Day promotions will also be staged, and 50 promotional coffee mugs will also be distributed to fans.

UO’s opening three-game Pac-12 series follows two weeks later at home vs. Stanford (Sat.-Mon., March 23-25).

Altogether, Oregon's schedule is one of the nation's toughest and features 32 of its 56 games against NCAA tourney qualifiers from last year (including five Women's College World Series qualifiers).

RECENT DUCK ACTION
Thanks to its second straight perfect tourney run, the then-No. 10 Ducks (19-3) staked a perfect 6-0 mark in the Citrus Classic last weekend in Orlando.

The Ducks scored their first top-25 wins of the season over No. 11 LSU (10-2, (5 innings)) and No. 14 Michigan (13-4 (6)). Oregon added a win vs.  a fellow NCAA tourney returnee in Long Island (8-1), and another team receiving votes nationally – James Madison (12-1). UO also scored +8 runs in its other decisions over Boston College (8-0) and Temple (11-4).

In Oregon’s victory over the Super Regional returnee Wolverines, the Ducks tied their school record for homers in a game (6) and also had a team season high in hits (17). On the first day of the tourney, the Ducks run-ruled the Tigers by a 10-2 count in five innings, while the returning WCWS returnee’s other two losses of ’13 were by two and one runs to ranked foes.


DUCK TRACKS
For the six games at the Citrus Classic, five Ducks topped .500 – freshman outfielder Alyssa Gillespie (.875, 7H, 2B, BB), junior shortstop Courtney Ceo (.632, 12H, 2 HR, 5 RBI, 2 BB, 4 SB), junior catcher Alexa Peterson (.538, 7H, 2B, HR, 5 RBI, 2 BB), sophomore centerfielder Janie Takeda (.526, 10H, 2B, 6 RBI, BB, 2 SB) and sophomore first baseman Hannah Melick (.500, 2H, 2 BB).

Rapping her first collegiate hits, Gillespie hit safely in seven of her eight at-bats in the tourney, and also walked once. Among those games, she stroked a team season in hits vs. James Madison (4-for-4).

Three other Ducks topped .400 - senior right fielder Samantha Pappas (.450, 9H, 2B, 4 HR, 8 RBI, 3 BB, SB), junior first baseman Kailee Cuico (.450, 9H, 2B, 3 HR, 8 RBI, BB) and sophomore third baseman Jamie Rae Sullivan (.417, 5H, 2 HR, 5 RBI, BB).

In the circle, freshman Cheridan Hawkins logged a 0.45 ERA in her 15.2 innings, struck out 29 batters, walked two, allowed four hits, and her one run allowed was earned.

Logging the second-best strikeout tally in school history, the Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week struck out 15 batters in her six-inning shutout of Boston College. She gave up only one hit with one out remaining in the game – a double to left field - and walked none.

The next day vs. James Madison, she pitched four no-hit innings before a fifth-inning double and single led to her first earned run allowed in 40 innings.

UO's other two pitchers also logged sub-2.00 ERA's in their +10 innings in Orlando – sophomore Karissa Hovinga (1.40, 1-0, 10.0 IP, 7 SO, 3 BB, 12 H) and All-American and senior Jessica Moore (1.70, 3-0, 12.1 IP, 10 SO, 2 BB, 11 H, .216 Opp BA).

The Ducks’ four game-winning RBI’s last weekend went to:
- Long Island ((8-1, 3/1/13) - Pappas 3-run homer to LCF 2nd inning, 0-0 pitch)
- Boston College (8-0 (6), 3/2/13) - Howard sacrifice fly to CF, 3rd inning (1 out, 0-2 pitch)
- Temple (11-4, 3/2/13) - Takeda bases-loaded walk, 1st inning (1 out, 3-1 pitch)
- #14 Michigan (13-4 (6), 3/3/13) - Cuico one-run single to CF, 1st inning (1 out, 0-1 pitch)


MORE TEAM NOTES
- Three Duck starters are hitting +.400 this season – sophomore center fielder Janie Takeda (.471, 32H, 18 RBI, 11 SB), junior catcher Alexa Peterson (.438 21 H, 4 HR, 15 RBI) and junior shortstop Courtney Ceo (.471, 32H, 3 HR, 14 RBI, 10 SB).

- Junior Kailee Cuico owns the team’s longest hitting streak of the season – currently 17 games strong. Cuico also had the team’s second-longest in ’12 (13 games) behind Kaylan Howard (15), while Samantha Pappas owned the longest streak in ’11 (12 games) and ’10 (15).

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

- The Duck offense has 10 different players that have knocked in game-winning RBI’s already this year – Kailee Cuico 4, Janie Takeda 3, Courtney Ceo 2, Koral Costa 1, Sara Goodrum 1, Kaylan Howard 1, Danica Mercado 1, Samantha Pappas 1, Alexa Peterson 1, and Jamie Rae Sullivan 1.  Two players knocked their first in last week in Orlando – Howard and Pappas.

- Last week, the Ducks smacked +4 homers in four of their six games in Orlando en route to a 19-1 advantage vs. its opposition 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 last weekend, 11 different players have combined for 36 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), Koral Costa (1), Karine Shaver (1) and Janie Takeda (1).

- Four of those Ducks 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 (1.71) as a team. The Ducks are far ahead of its school-record mark from two years ago (1.22, 2011), while last year’s mark ranks third-best (1.05).


2012 FRESNO REWIND
Last year in the Bayer Cropscience Classic in Fresno, Calif., then-No. 15 UO went 5-0 for its fourth perfect early season tourney trip (and second of the season). The Ducks topped a pair of returning 2011 NCAA advancers in Fresno State (5-4) and San Diego State (6-0), and also easily cruised past Butler (6-0), UConn (9-3) and Purdue (9-1 (5 innings)).

Oregon staked game-winning RBI in the first inning of four of those contests, while its Fresno State seventh-inning comeback came via a two-run single by Alexa Peterson on a two-out, 1-2 count. Kaylan Howard stroked a pair of game-winning RBI via UConn (single) and Purdue (2-run triple) to up total to six on the season – five more than she had in all of 2011. Kelsey Chambers added her fifth GW-RBI of ’12 on a single vs. Butler, and Kailee Cuico connected on an infield ground-out vs. San Diego State.
 
On the weekend, tourney MVP and Samantha Pappas led UO in hitting (.667), homers (1), RBI (8), slugging (.917), on-base percentage (.706), stolen bases (3) and multi-hit games (3-tied). She had a season high in hits vs. Butler (3-for-3), and was also perfect at the plate in the team’s comeback win vs. NCAA tourney returnee Fresno State (2-for-2, walk, sacrifice fly) and San Diego State (2-for-2, 4 RBI, 1 HR, 1 BB, 1 SB).

Four other Ducks hit .400 or better – all-tourney team pick and Janie Takeda (.556, 10 H, 1 3B, 2 BB), Courtney Ceo (.500, 10 H, 1 2B, 1 BB), Kelsey Chambers (.429, 6 H, 1 RBI, 4 BB, 1 HBP) and Jamie Rae Sullivan (.400, 2 H, 2 BB).

Pitcher Jessica Moore (12-3 in ‘12) went 3-0 on the weekend, staked a 1.27 ERA, and in her 22 innings, struck out 18, walked seven, yielded 19 hits,  logged three complete games, one shutout and her first save of the season.

Also in the circle, Karissa Hovinga (6-0) won both of her starts, struck out eight, walked three, allowed 10 hits, and all three runs she gave up were earned in her 11 innings.


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 (83) and strikeouts (778), 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.

AT AN ALL-TIME HIGH
Last week in Orlando, senior right fielder Samantha Pappas climbed all-time Duck career lists for homers (fifth, 34), runs (sixth, 123), hits (eighth, 196) and stolen bases (eighth-tied, 52).

Senior second baseman Kaylan Howard also improved to seventh on the homers chart (seventh, 32), while freshman Cheridan Hawkins logged the second-best strikeout total for a game in school history (15).

Altogether, eight current Ducks stand top 10 in several career/season/game offensive categories, and a complete list follows.

IN THE POLLS
Oregon claimed its sixth straight top-10 national ranking in the regular season’s fourth editions released Tuesday.

Climbing four and one spots, respectively, in the USA Softball and NFCA editions, No. 8/9 UO was one of four top-10 ranked teams in the Pac-12 this week with a pair of fellow WCWS returnees - No. 3/3 Arizona State and No. 6/6 California - and No. 9/10 UCLA.

Overall, Oregon was one of eight league members that ranked top 25 nationally this week with No. 16/19 Washington, No. 19/18 Stanford, No. 20/16 Arizona and No. -/23 Oregon State.

For comparison's sake, a complete list of Pac-12 rankings from the previous edition follows: No. 3/3 Arizona State, No. 7/8 California, No. 12/10 Oregon, No. 10/11 UCLA, No. 18/19 Washington, No. 21/17 Arizona and No. 24/- Oregon State.

Six other Duck non-conference foes in 2013 were also tabbed top 25 this week by USA SB/NFCA – No. 1/2 Oklahoma, No. 4/4 Florida, No. 12/12 LSU, No. 14/14 Michigan, No. 24/21 Hawai’i and No. 22/- Nebraska. One other foe – Long Beach State – also picked up votes.

Overall in the top five, the top four teams stayed the same - No. 1/2 Alabama, No. 2/1 Oklahoma. No. 3/3 Arizona State and No. 4/4 Florida. Texas A&M remained No. 5 in the USA Softball edition, and Missouri climbed a spot to No. 5 in the NFCA version.

Altogether, Oregon has now been ranked for 45 straight polls by USA Softball and 40 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. 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.

SKED CRED
The Ducks face another grueling regular season slate in 2013 with 32 of its 56 games this spring against 16 returning tournament qualifiers from last year’s NCAA tournament field.

Among the Ducks’ 56 games against 36 opponents, UO will face four other WCWS returnees in national runner-up Oklahoma, Arizona State, California and LSU.

The Ducks will face 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 19 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).

Glancing at this week’s national polls, the Ducks will play 11 teams ranked top 25 by the NFCA/USA Softball this season –  No. 2/1 Oklahoma, No. 3/3 Arizona State, No. 5/5 Florida, No. 8/8 California, No. 11/10 LSU, No. 14/19 Arizona, No. 15/15 Michigan, No. 16/13 UCLA, No. 19/20 Hawai’i, No. 20/17 Stanford and No. 22/22 Washington.

An eighth league team (Oregon State) received votes in the NFCA poll, and Nebraska and San Diego State received votes in the USA Softball edition.


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 with its home opener set for Wednesday, March 13 – a doubleheader vs. New Mexico.

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.

A list of current Ducks’ all-time All-Region and All-Pac-12 honors follows:

Samantha Pappas – 2012: NFCA Second-Team All-American, All-Pac-12 First Team, All-Region First Team; 2011: All-Pac-12 Honorable Mention; 2010: Pac-12 Newcomer of the Year, All-Pac-12 First Team, All-Region First Team, All-Pac-12 Freshman Team

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 71.0 winning percentage as its head coach, White has compiled a 142-58 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-10 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 teams to the 16-team Super Regional level, and three of the eight World Series qualifiers.

Again this week, the Pac-12 sports seven teams ranked top 25 nationally this week by the NFCA/USA Softball –No. 3/3 ASU, No. 8/8 California, No. 9/11 Oregon, No. 14/19 Arizona, No. 16/13 UCLA and No. 20/17 Stanford  and No. 22/22 Washington. An eighth team – Oregon State – picked up votes in the NFCA edition.

Last year, the Pac-12 featured three teams in the Women’s College World Series - #1 seed California, #3 seed Arizona State and #11 seed Oregon. Two more teams advanced to the Super Regional - #13 Arizona and #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).
