Also named to both the All-Pac-12 first team and All-Defensive Team for the fourth consecutive year, Perez has been a defensive presence all season long. She has tallied 56 putouts, only committed eight errors and boasts a .938 fielding percentage heading into the final weekend of the regular season. Offensively, Perez became just the fourth Bruin to join the 300 hits club and is also UCLA's career runs scored leader. This season, she has stolen 15 bases to bring her career total to 72. She leads the conference in triples (6), has driven in 37 runs, hit 10 home runs and scored 40 times.
