Jaime Clark Earns Pac-10 Softball Player-of-the-Week Honors
April 1, 2002
SEATTLE - For the second time this season, UW junior Jaime Clark (Tustin, Calif.) has been named the Pac-10 Player of the Week, after helping the Huskies to three wins over ranked foes, including an upset of No. 1 UCLA, the conference office announced Monday.
Clark hit a team-best .471 overall (7-for-15) with four runs scored, three home runs, 12 RBI and a 1.133 slugging percentage. The team co-captain also had a sacrifice fly, a double and no strikeouts in the Huskies' four games against No. 18 Pacific and No. 1 UCLA.
Clark extended her current hitting streak to 14 games, a career-best and team season-high, while also running her streak of consecutive games on base to 49.
In 2002, the two-time All-American is leading the team in batting with a .434 average and is first in home runs (14), RBI (56) and runs scored (40). The award is the junior's second such honor of the season and fourth of her career. Washington has earned 47 Pac-10 weekly honors since the program's inception in 1993.
The 12th-ranked UW softball team (30-9) plays host to its final non-conference games of the season this Tuesday, when Portland State travels to Husky Softball Stadium for a 2 p.m. doubleheader.
