Three Huskies Named To WCWS All-Tournament Team
June 7, 2007
SEATTLE-- After leading the Washington softball team to a third place national finish last week, three Huskies have been named to the 12-person Women's College World Series All-Tournament Team, including Ashley Charters, Danielle Lawrie and Dena Tyson. The trio become the first Washington players to be named to the WCWS All-Tournament team since 2000.
Charters led the Huskies with a .364 average (4-for-11), including a pair of doubles and three runs scored. She also boasted a .500 on-base percentage, was perfect on defense at shortstop and was 3-for-4 in stolen bases.
Lawrie earned all four decisions for Washington in the circle, finishing her first WCWS with a 2-2 record. 1.72 earned run average and 35 strikeouts in 23 innings. Lawrie tossed a no-hitter vs. DePaul in the WCWS opener and threw a one-hitter the next day vs. Northwestern to propel UW into the national semifinal game. The no-hitter vs. DePaul marked just the 16th no-no in WCWS history and the first-ever by a Washington pitcher. It was Lawrie's second career no-hitter after throwing a perfect game vs. Utah Valley State last season.
Tyson led Washington with four of the team's 11 RBIs during the WCWS. She hit .300 (3-for-10) with a home run and a .600 slugging percentage. Her two-run home run vs. DePaul tied her for fifth on the UW career list with 35 home runs.
