In ASA National Play, he hurled close to 20 shutouts and 8 no hitters, including 4 perfect games.

In ISC World play, he had another 21 shutouts with 3 no hitters and 2 perfect games.

In State and regional play, he probably had another 15 no hitters and 10 perfect games.

He saved his best for the big stage.  In what is still considered the greatest pitching performance of all time in the 1972 ISF World Championships, he pitched an incredible 1-0 win over New Zealand and its ace pitcher, Kevin Herlihy, in 20 innings. For 18 2/3 innings Stofflet had a perfect game before a batter was hit by a pitch. Stofflet had two of the five hits off Herlihy including the game’s only RBI with a single in the top of the 20th inning. Stofflet finished with an incredible 32 strikeouts in a game.

He was a pitcher with no equal and what people fail to realize it that he also had a career batting average of over .300.

Rachel Garcia was named the Most Outstanding Player of the World Series. She threw 179 pitches and hit a walk-off homer in the semifinal win over Washington on Sunday, then got the victory in Game 1 against Oklahoma on Monday. She gave up four runs and eight hits to earn the win in the clincher on Tuesday.

Brianna Tautalafua had three hits, and Washington and Aaliyah Jordan each had two for UCLA (56-6).

The Bruins rolled past the Sooners 16-3 in Game 1 on Monday and tied the record for most runs scored in a World Series game.

2018 NCAA Women’s College World Series

2018 held at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on May 31 – June 5.


Champion – Florida State Seminoles (58-12)
Runner Up – Washington Huskies (52-10)


Standing in the circle with two outs in the seventh inning, Meghan King flung the ball toward the plate. The ball ricocheted off the bat of Taylor Van Zee and skipped along the ground. King took a step toward the ball; the crowd had gone quiet and she felt like everything was moving in slow motion. This was the moment, her moment. And all she could think about was how thankful she was for all those reps of pitcher fielding practice so that she wouldn’t screw this up.

King picked up the ball and threw it to first, getting the final out of the Women’s College World Series to give Florida State an 8-3 victory over Washington and its first softball national championship. It is also the first for the ACC.

It was a clean ending to a game that began as a comedy of errors Tuesday. Florida State, which had looked so collected the night before, was reeling in the first inning. Van Zee started it all with a leadoff hit off King. Then came a passed ball, a sacrifice bunt, a bad throw, a miscue in center field on a pop fly, and a line drive and grounder that drove in runs. When the dust settled, Washington was up 3-0.

But what could have been the beginning of the end for FSU only put the team back in a familiar position. The infield huddled in the dugout around the watercooler and busted out in laughter. Coach Lonni Alameda joked with her players, saying, “This is perfect because we’re the Cardiac Kids and we need to be down in order to come back. We’re going to score some runs. We’ll be all right.”

Not one of the Seminoles had any doubt. Why would they? Although they came into the game with a 1-0 series lead — a position FSU had not been in all postseason long as it survived six elimination games — they have shown that they are most comfortable, and lethal, with their backs against the wall. Perhaps the only way they could win while ahead was to fall behind.

The comeback began in earnest just a few moments later when catcher Anna Shelnutt, dubbed “Postseason Anna,” smashed a two-run homer in the bottom of the first. It was her second home run in as many nights.

Then it was King, a redshirt junior, who returned to the circle and proceeded to pitch six scoreless innings. After giving up two hits in the first inning, she gave up just another three the rest of the night. The FSU bats did their jobs, extending the lead to 8-3, but it was King who shut down Washington’s offense to secure the victory.

King’s tournament ERA of 0.20 ranks as the lowest in Women’s College World Series history. In 34⅓ innings, she allowed just one earned run, in the first inning of Tuesday’s game. While discussion all tournament long focused on Paige Parker, Kelly Barnhill and Rachel Garcia, King turned in what can only be described as one of the greatest WCWS performances of all time.

Her focus and consistency — and her ability to shake off Tuesday’s rocky start — lifted Florida State (58-12) to a national championship few thought possible. With its sweep of Washington (52-10), Florida State became the third team in the 37-year history of the Women’s College World Series to lose its WCWS opener and still win the title.

2017 NCAA Womens College World Series

2017 held at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on June 1-7.


Champion – Oklahoma Sooners (61-9)
Runner Up – Florida Gators (58-10)


Oklahoma softball is the national champion for the second straight season and third time in five years.

Even as defending champions, it seemed for most of the season that Oklahoma was unlikely to repeat.

The Sooners earned just a No. 10 seed in the NCAA tournament. They lost their NCAA opener to North Dakota State before rallying, then had to go to Auburn and win a super regional.

Even when they recovered at the Women’s College World Series and reached the championship round, they faced No. 1 seed Florida and its two All-American pitchers.

The Sooners defeated No. 1 Florida 5-4 Tuesday night in Game 2 to clinch the two-game sweep of the Gators in Oklahoma City. Following Monday night’s 17-inning marathon that was won on a three-run home run from Shay Knighten, it was Knighten again who came up clutch in the second game. The first baseman’s three-run double in the second inning closed out a four-run frame and put the Sooners ahead for good at 5-3.

The Oklahoma Sooners two-game sweep of the Florida Gators in the Women’s College World Series Finals (June 5-6 on ESPN) averaged a total live audience (TV + streaming) of 1,720,000 viewers, the most-watched sweep in Women’s College World Series Finals history.  The Sooner-Gators’ two games in the best-of-three format was up 33% from 2014, the last time the WCWS Finals failed to go to a decisive third game.  This year’s two-game average was also up 33% over last season’s WCWS Finals first two games (June 6-7, 2016) featuring Oklahoma and Auburn. The Sooners won the series in three games.

2016 NCAA Womens College World Series

2016 held at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on June 2-8.


Champion – Oklahoma Sooners (57-8)
Runner Up – Auburn Tigers (58-12)


Oklahoma sophomore left-hander Paige Parker, however, stayed just a little bit above the fray.

The Independence, Mo., product watched from the dugout as Auburn rallied from a 7-0 deficit on Tuesday night to set up Wednesday night’s deciding third game of the best-of-three championship series. Parker was far from perfect on the final night of the 2016 collegiate campaign, but she battled a pesky Auburn offense all night and led the Sooners to a second national championship in four years.

Auburn’s Jade Rhodes hit a solo home run in the fourth inning, but that was it as Oklahoma won 2-1 in front of a record crowd of 8,367 for Session 10 at Hall of Fame Stadium.

Parker (38-3) tossed her fifth complete game of the week, allowing five hits and striking out five. Her fourth complete game came two nights ago in a 3-2 win that saw Auburn manage four hits and two runs, both coming in a spine-tingling seventh inning that ended when first baseman Shay Knighten threw out the tying run at home plate to end the game.

“It was one of the most fantastic feelings that I’ve ever had in my whole life,” said Parker, who was named the 2016 WCWS Most Outstanding Player after throwing 36 innings over the last seven days. “Our fans this year have been so vital to all of the things that we’ve done. They’ve supported us so much, and to have all of them here and to have all of our families here, as well, just meant so much to us, and it was just incredible to get to share this feeling with them, as well.”


  • Most Outstanding Player – Paige Parker, Oklahoma

  • RBI Leader – Shay Knighten, Oklahoma – 8
  • Home Run Leader – Jade Rhodes, Auburn – 3

2015 NCAA Women’s College World Series

2015 held at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on May 28 – June 3.


Champion – Florida Gators (61-7)
Runner Up – Michigan Wolverines (60-8)


No. 1 Florida Gators softball became just the third program in the history of the sport to win back-to-back national championships, defeating the No. 3 Michigan Wolverines 4-1 on Wednesday in Game 3 of the 2015 Women’s College World Series Championship Series in Oklahoma City.

Senior right-handed pitcher Lauren Haeger (7.0 IP, 5 H, ER, BB, 5 K), the 2015 USA Softball Player of the Year, went the distance for Florida and also continued her dominance at the plate by going 1/1 with an RBI single and two intentional walks. With Wednesday’s performance a compliment to her tremendous effort throughout the event, she was named the Most Outstanding Player of the 2015 NCAA Tournament.

UF outscored its opponents 41-8 in the NCAA Tournament with six shutouts in 11 games, two of which went to extra innings. The path was therefore even more arduous than a year ago, when the Gators ran through the field on the way to their first national title, outscoring opponents 81-10 with eight shutouts and six run-rule victories.

Haeger went 8-1 in nine tournament starts, losing by a 1-0 decision in a game void of run support. She tossed 65.0 total innings in the event, registering 44 strikeouts and giving up 36 hits (11 of which came a nine-inning game) while only walking nine batters and allowing six earned runs. Haeger was simultaneously Florida’s best bet at the plate, hitting .433 with four homers, 11 RBI, seven runs, eight walks and a stolen base.


  • Most Outstanding Player – Lauren Haeger, Florida
  • Batting Leader – Lauren Haeger, Florida – .571
  • RBI Leader – Lauren Haeger, Florida – 7
  • Home Run Leader – Lauren Haeger, Florida – 3

2014 NCAA Women’s College World Series

2014 held at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on May 30 – June 5.


Champion – Florida Gators (55-12)
Runner Up – Alabama Crimson Tide (53-13)


The most statistically dominant team throughout the NCAA tournament, Florida beat Alabama 6-3 to sweep the final series and win the first national championship in program history. At times the best team in the country during the regular season and at times a far cry from it, Florida didn’t even need to be at its best Tuesday night to complete a postseason run that proved it deserved to dance with the trophy.

It clinched the championship with Hannah Rogers, who was named the World Series most outstanding player and who throughout the tournament put together one of the most impressive sustained postseason pitching performances of any championship ace in the past decade, watching from the dugout until the sixth inning.

The Gators won despite four errors in the first four innings, 10 percent of the total errors their otherwise brilliant defense committed in 67 games this season.

They got arguably the biggest out of their season, with two outs and the bases loaded with Crimson Tide in a game the Gators led by three runs in the fourth inning, on a pitch thrown by freshman Delanie Gourley, who was five batters into her first appearance in a game since the less stomach-churning surroundings of an NCAA tournament regional at home against Florida A&M.

2013 NCAA Women’s College World Series

2013 held at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on May 31 – June 6.


Champion – Oklahoma Sooners (57-4)
Runner Up – Tennessee Lady Vols (52-12)


Lauren Chamberlain rounded first base waiting, wondering and praying even that her long drive would be a home run and not just a foul ball.

When third-base umpire Christie Cornwell raised her right hand and signaled that it was a home run, she thrust both arms into the air and ran around the bases into a celebration at home plate.

Chamberlain’s two-run home run in the bottom of the 12th inning lifted top-seeded Oklahoma to a 5-3 win against Tennessee on Monday night in Game 1 of the Women’s College World Series finals. It was her 30th of the season, tying for the most in the nation this season.

“I really couldn’t believe it,” Chamberlain said. “It was awesome.”

The Sooners capitalized on a dropped pop-up to rally from three runs down in the 11th after Tennessee’s Madison Shipman broke a scoreless tie with a three-run home run off of national player of the year Keilani Ricketts (35-1).

Ellen Renfroe (19-5) was able to match Ricketts until the end, striking out 13 for seventh-seeded Tennessee (52-11). She threw 180 pressure-packed pitches, eight less than Ricketts.

It ended up as the longest game in the championship round since 1984, when UCLA beat Texas A&M 1-0 in 13 innings back when a single game decided the NCAA softball title.

2012 NCAA Women’s College World Series

2012 held at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on May 31 – June 6


Champion – Alabama Crimson Tide (55-7)
Runner Up – Oklahoma Sooners (50-8)


With one game left to decide the NCAA softball championship, the Crimson Tide’s season-long mantra has reached its ultimate point.

Jackie Traina and Amanda Locke each had three-run doubles and Alabama forced a decisive third game in the Women’s College World Series finals by beating Oklahoma 8-6 on Tuesday night.

The trophy will be handed out after Game 3 on Wednesday night.

“It’s the perfect time to finish it right now,” Traina said. “Tomorrow’s going to be the day.”

Traina laced a double to the warning track in left-center field with two outs in the second inning, putting the second-seeded Crimson Tide up 4-1. They wouldn’t trail again.

Kaila Hunt added a sacrifice before Locke’s bases-clearing double in the fourth for the Crimson Tide (59-8), who are trying to become the first Southeastern Conference team to win the NCAA
softball title.

“Everybody was locked in and ready to go. I couldn’t be more proud of a team,” said Patrick Murphy, who briefly left to coach LSU for a few days last June before having second thoughts and
returning to Alabama.

“This is what we’ve been working for — me for 16 years but these guys for four years. I’m just excited. I wish we could play right now.”

Alabama and Tennessee each have 12 World Series wins, the most for any team that hasn’t won the championship.

Alabama beat Oklahoma 5-4 in Game 3 of the Women’s College World Series’ championship series, claiming the national title in a game defined by delays.

Scheduled for a 7 p.m. start, the first pitch wasn’t thrown until nearly 10.

“It was a weird day,” said OU coach Patty Gasso. “It’s the biggest game of my life, their lives, and we’re sitting in a locker room for three hours trying to figure out what to do to stay loose.”

The Sooners appeared just fine after the game got started, though. Keilani Ricketts was perfect in the circle the first two innings, striking out five of the first six hitters she faced.

To open the second, Ricketts blasted a solo home run down the right-field line, and freshman Lauren Chamberlain added a two-run shot in the third inning to open a 3-0 Sooners lead.

Chamberlain would add a second home run, this time a solo shot, in the bottom of the seventh with two outs to draw the Sooners within one run.
