CAREER HIGHLIGHTS
• In 2010, is one of five Duck seniors and one of its most experienced outfielders after starting in both left and right field in 2009.
• One of team's top left-handed bats and also one of its fastest and most aggressive outfielders defensively.
• Logged career highs in nearly every offensive category as a junior in '09, and also was a frequent starter in '08.
• As a freshman, was one of team's top newcomers on squad that ranked top-10 nationally after a school record 24-3 start.

2009 SEASON (Junior)
Opened season as regular starter in the outfield, and almost doubled her previous season high in starts with her 34 opening nods. Started 13 games in left field in first half of season when Sari-Jane Jenkins switched to shortstop just before the season to lend experience to the infield. When Jenkins switched back to her normal left field slot near midseason, Williamson also returned to her former home, right field, and started 17 of the last 26 games of '09. Stroked her first three career homers in a two-week stretch in the middle of the season. Clubbed her first roundtripper, a two-run shot at No. 11 Arizona in late March. The following week at home, launched a 3-2 pitch over center field in 2-0 win vs. Portland State in a 2-for-3 day, and also made a diving catch in the sixth inning with two outs and two runners on. Her other blast was a first-inning shot in a 3-2 win over Oregon State in early April. Hammered her first career triple at Oregon State to tie score, 1-1, in fifth inning in late March contest. Overall, had three multi-hit games during season vs. UC Davis (2-for-4, 1 stolen base), at Oregon State (2-for-3, triple) and vs. Portland State (2-for-3, 1 home run). Her longest hitting streak - three games - came midseason with the two games at No. 11 Arizona (1-for-2, homer, 2 RBI; 1-for-2, walk) and vs. Portland State (2-for-3). Defensively, finished with a .865 fielding percentage (32 putouts, 5 errors, 0 assists). Made another diving catch with two runners on in first inning in mid-April home game vs. No. 4 Washington.

2008 SEASON (Sophomore)
Took advantage of midseason hit streak off bench to start 13 times in the conference season, including 10 straight games in April. Saw most extensive duty as a starter, and split duties in right field with then-senior Kayleen Hudson. At season’s end, led team in conference game batting (.258). In Pac-10 at-bats, ranked second on team in doubles (2) and fourth in hits (8). Went on one of team’s biggest tears of the Pac-10 slate with pinch hits vs. No. 1 UCLA and Oregon State. The next game, her two doubles vs. ASU’s All-American Katie Burkhart was her first career game with multiple, multiple-base hits, and she knocked in one of UO’s two runs. That same game, she nearly had another extra base hit robbed by a leaping grab by the first baseman. The next day, she garnered UO’s only hit and run vs. returning College World Series MVP Taryne Mowatt of Arizona. Also started four games in early season tournaments. Collected first hit in second game of season in pinch hit appearance vs. Cal Poly and added a stolen base and scored two runs. Also had stolen base in 2-1 win vs. Oregon State. For second straight season, was error-free on defense (1.000, 10 putouts, 0 assists).

2007 SEASON (Freshman)
Batted .380 and appeared in 51 of 63 games, and made six starts. Had highest batting average among reserve players. Went 19-for-50 from the plate in her pinch-hitting opportunities. At Washington in late April, came into the game in center field and made a shoe-string diving catch with two runners on to end the sixth. At the Eller Media Classic in Las Vegas, she batted .875 (7-for-8) as Oregon finished the tourney with a 4-1 mark. Had two runs scored, two walks and one stolen base in those five games. Collected her first collegiate hit on against Utah (2/18). Earned her first collegiate start against New Mexico State (3/9) and went 2-3 with 2 runs. Started the following game vs. Miami (OH) and went 3-for-3 to wrap up a stretch of hits in eight of nine games (with four of those games via pinch hits). Also had a three-game hitting streak the following week at home. Was one team’s top threats on basepaths and was 6-6 in stolen base attempts. In first month of season, scored first run in 3-2 win over Cal State Northridge, knocked in first RBI in win vs. UC Davis, stole first base in win vs. Seton Hall, and hit first double in win vs. Long Beach, and and had first multi-hit game vs. St. Mary’s.
Ended season with a 1.000 fielding mark (six putouts, 0 assists).
