A four-time all-Pac-10 selection at shortstop, Kathy Stahl was the cornerstone of the Oregon infield during the mid-1990s. As a freshman in 1993, she attained all-league first team honors with a .338 batting average. The next season as a sophomore, Stahl led the team with 49 runs, including a school-record four in one game versus Santa Clara, and helped lead Oregon to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in four years. It was also during the 1994 season that she set the school’s single-game record with three doubles against Puget Sound. She was rewarded with an all-Pac-10 second team selection. As a junior in 1995, Stahl showed her power with a team-best 11 home runs – including a school-record three in one game versus Oregon State – 12 doubles, seven triples, 33 RBI and a slugging percentage of .784. Her seven triples in 1995 remains the school’s single-season record 15 years after graduation. Her senior season, Stahl batted a career-best .420, which remains the third-highest average in school history, while matching her own record by scoring four runs in a single game against Ohio State. She was an all-Pac-10 first team selection both of her last two seasons and an all-region first team pick in 1996. Stahl led the Ducks in runs scored all four years in addition to concluding her career as the Ducks’ all-time leader in doubles (39), triples (16), home runs (31), runs scored (149), walks (86) and batting average (.381). Those marks are still among the Ducks’ all-time top 10, as are her totals in hits (227), and RBI (117). Stahl was also a three-time Pac-10 all-academic first team selection. She was later named to Oregon’s all-decade team for the 1990s.
