Sept. 4, 2008
Former University of Washington All-American softball player Jaime Clark was recently named the Nokona American Glove Offensive Player of the Year for the 2008 National Pro Fastpitch season.
Clark, who played for Washington from 2000-2003, completed her fourth season with the Chicago Bandits two weeks ago, helping the team capture the 2008 NPF championship. She led the NPF with 38 RBIs and 12 doubles while also ranking fourth with 11 home runs. Clark, who saw time in right field, left field and shortstop for the Bandits, also scored 24 runs and collected 40 hits on the season. She was an All-NPF selection for the third consecutive season.
In her time at Washington, Clark was a four-time All-Pac-10 selection and was named First Team All-American in 2002 after leading the nation with 75 RBIs and batting .431. A three-time All-American, she finished her career with UW records in runs batted in (243) and runs scored (221).
Clark went on to play for three seasons with the U.S. National Team and was an alternate on the U.S. Olympic Team that captured gold in the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens.
