Jaime Clark Selected To 2004 National Softball Team
Sept. 8, 2003
SEATTLE.- Former Washington softball standout and three-time All-American Jaime Clark (Tustin, Calif.) has been selected to the 2004 Women's National Team. The 18-players selected to the team will train for the next 12 months in preparation of defending its gold medal at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece. Since the official Olympic roster consists of only 15-players, three of the 18 players selected will be named as alternates on January 5th. The final 15 will be nominated to the United State Olympic Committee as the team to represent the U.S. at the 2004 Olympic Games.
Clark is making her second national team appearance after being part of the 2001 Pan Am Qualifier Team. In 2003, she led the team with a 1.033 slugging percentage and ranked second with a .500 batting average (15-for-30). Clark finished the 30-game summer tour with two doubles, a triple, four home runs and 13 runs batted in. She also scored 17 runs, drew six walks and was 5-for-6 in stolen base attempts. At the Pan Am Games, Clark hit .778 to lead the U.S. to its fifth consecutive gold medal.
A 2003 graduate from Washington, Clark had a spectacular collegiate career that included two appearances in the Women's College World Series (2000, 2003) and three Pac-10 all-conference awards. She finished her career with three school records, including career home runs (73), career runs scored (223) and career runs batted in (243).
The final roster for the 2003 Olympic Team must be submitted to the United States Olympic Committee for final approval.
