Plain Earns Pac-12 Pitcher Of The Week

Feb 15, 2021

Pac-12 Release

SAN FRANCISCO - After throwing her second career perfect game, Gabbie Plain has been named the Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week by the Pac-12 Conference. Plain threw a perfect game in the season opener and did not allow a run to score in any of her four appearances.

Plain was excellent on opening weekend, beginning the 2021 season with a perfect game. She joins Danielle Lawrie as the only Huskies ever to throw a perfect game in the first game of the season. Lawrie is also the only other Husky to have multiple perfect games in their careers. Plain now has two perfect games and five no-hitters at Washington.

The Australian ace has not allowed a run yet in 2021 and is now on a 26-inning scoreless streak. She last allowed a run on March 1, 2020. This is the seventh shutout streak of 20+ innings in Plain's career. Only Lawrie and Jennifer Spediacci have had more 20+ inning shutout streaks in Washington history.

This is Plain's fourth career Pitcher of the Week honor and seventh weekly honor from the Pac-12. Only three Huskies in program history have won more weekly awards from the conference than Plain: Lawrie (18), Spediacci (9), and Taran Alvelo (9). She is the fifth Husky pitcher to earn a weekly award in three different seasons, having done so in 2018, 2019, and now 2021.

Washington will remain on the road this week as it heads to St. George, Utah to play five games. Video streams will be available for the February 18 game against BYU and the February 19 game against Dixie State only.
