1993 NCAA Women’s College World Series

1993 held at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on May 27-31.


Champion – Arizona Wildcats (44-8)
Runner Up – UCLA Bruins (50-5)


The two best pitchers in the country — UA’s Susie Parra (28-3) and UCLA’s Lisa Fernandez (33-3) — faced each other in the Women’s College World Series title game, with Arizona winning 1-0 in a softball purist’s delight.

Parra threw 75 pitches in the win, giving up two hits, striking out six and walking two. No Bruin advanced beyond second base. She struck out the side in the seventh inning to clinch Arizona’s second national championship.

Parra went 4-1 in Oklahoma City, pitching 39 innings and giving up one earned run on 17 hits while striking out 51 and walking only six.

Fernandez was nearly as good. UCLA’s ace gave up one hit, one run, walked one and struck out four in the title game. Leah O’Brien’s first-inning single to center delivered the UA’s only run.

The 1993 WCWS was the latest chapter in the Arizona-UCLA rivalry. The Wildcats beat the Bruins for the 1991 title, with UCLA returning the favor in 1992.
