After a slew of cancellations thanks to bad weather, Pac-12 softball looks to close out the non-conference season on a sunnier note ... Six teams remain ranked after tough losses and rained-out tournaments. OREGON jumped up to No. 2 after going 4-1 on the weekend, holding No. 1 Florida to just two runs in the Duck’s eight-inning loss ... ARIZONA continued its dominance, outscoring opponents 51-4 and posting five run-rule victories ... WASHINGTON added three more victories to move up one spot to sixth in both polls, while ARIZONA STATE suffered tough losses and dropped to 10th in the NFCA poll and seventh in USA Softball ... STANFORD slipped to 22nd and 17th ... UCLA and UTAH return to action after weather canceled all games in their respective tournaments, while CALIFORNIA only played one game ... Weekly honors went to Arizona’s Kelsey Rodriguez for Player of the Week and Oregon’s Cheridan Hawkins for Pitcher of the Week.
