WALNUT CREEK, Calif. – University of Oregon senior Jessica Moore was honored with a program-record fourth Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week honor Monday after she helped the Pac-12 champion University of Oregon softball team (45-7, 18-3) stake its first-ever conference title last weekend.

The Sutter, Calif., native allowed only two hits in each of her three +5-inning wins – two that were complete games.

She posted nine strikeouts in starts vs. both Seattle and Oregon State – one shy of her season high - and also posted five in her other win vs. the returning NCAA Regional finalist Beavers.

All-time for UO, she improved her school career records for wins (97), strikeouts (875), innings (862) and appearances (168), and other top-10 career marks for shutouts (fourth, 18) and complete games (sixth, 74).

On Duck all-time season charts, she move up to fourth for wins (24) and matched her sophomore mark.

This week she also ranked top 25 nationally in wins (20th, 24) and ERA (24th, 1.53) and second in both in the Pac-12, respectively.

At the plate, she boosted the Duck offense with a homer vs. both Seattle (a two-run first-inning blast) and OSU (sixth-inning solo homer) to give her three on the season and six career-wise.

Team-wise last week, the No. 4 Ducks staked a 5-0 mark at home with a pair of wins vs. Seattle (4-0, 6-4) and its second season sweep of Oregon State (2-1, 11-0 (5), 8-0 (5)) the past three years (and sixth ever).

Also with an honor on April 8 this season, Moore is the seventh Duck selection this season with three-time honoree and freshman pitcher Cheridan Hawkins (3/5, 3/25, 4/1), and junior first baseman Kailee Cuico (4/1) and catcher/DP Alexa Peterson (4/15).

Altogether, Monday’s award marked the 44th pitcher/player honor in school history, and 15th in head coach Mike White’s four-year tenure.

Moore won two honors in prior seasons, as did two other current Ducks - senior outfielders Samantha Pappas (3/29/10, 4/9/12) and Allie Burger (3/2/10).
 
This week, Oregon caps the regular season with three games at No. 3 Arizona State (43-9, 14-7), Thursday-Saturday, May 9-11. The final two games will be televised live by the Pac-12 Network at 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

The next day on Sunday, May 12, the 64-team NCAA Tournament selection show will be aired by ESPNU at 7 p.m. Pacific Time.
