Jaime Clark Named Pac-10 Softball Player Of The Week
March 4, 2002
SEATTLE - After hitting five home runs in five games at last weekend's Red Desert Classic, UW junior Jaime Clark (Tustin, Calif.) has been named the Pac-10 Softball Player of the Week, the conference office announced Monday.
Clark hit a solo home run and a pair of two and three-run home runs to help the Huskies to a 4-1 record at the 10-team tournament in St. George, Utah. The team's starting shortstop finished the weekend with a .333 batting average, six runs scored, 11 RBI, 20 total bases and a 1.333 slugging percentage.
With her second four-bagger of the weekend, Clark became Washington's all-time career home run leader, passing former All-American Jen Cline (1993-96), who hit 43 in her four-year career. Clark currently has 47 career home runs in her third season at the UW.
In 2002, the two-time All-American is second on the team in batting with a .376 average and first in home runs (10), RBI (37) and runs scored (25). The award is Clark's third such honor of her career and first for the team this season. Washington has earned 46 Pac-10 weekly honors since the program's inception in 1993.
The UW softball team (20-7) plays host to its first home games of the season this weekend, when Simon Fraser travels to Husky Softball Stadium for a 1 p.m. doubleheader on March 9.
