2003 NCAA Women’s College World Series

2003 held at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on May 22-25.


Champion – UCLA Bruins (54-7)
Runner Up – California Golden Bears (49-20)


In 2003 the NCAA bumped up the amount of teams in the championship tournament from 48 to 64 teams. There were eight regional sites with eight teams each and eight teams advancing to the Women’s College World Series in Oklahoma City.

The UCLA seniors were going to make school history one way or another May 26 in the championship game.

The four Bruins, playing in the final game of their career, either would become the first class in UCLA history not to win a title on the field or become the first team since Texas A&M in 1983 to
lose its first game of the tournament then rally for the title. Riding junior pitcher Keira Goerl’s no-hitter, the Bruins outlasted defending national champion California for a 1-0 victory.

2002 NCAA Women’s College World Series

2002 held at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on May 24-28.


Champion – California Golden Bears (56-19)
Runner Up – Arizona Wildcats (55-12)


For California pitcher Jocelyn Forest, facing Pacific-10 Conference rival Arizona on a national stage with the NCAA title on the line likely was easier than facing the Wildcats just six weeks before in a regular-season home game. That was when the senior, after taking a week off in April to mourn the death of her sister, returned to the mound and threw without practice against defending national champion Arizona.

Forest was a magician then, allowing just one hit, and she repeated the feat in the Women’s College World Series title game May 27 to claim California’s first championship in any women’s sport and earn most outstanding player honors. Forest won four games, struck out 33 and allowed only nine hits over 28 innings.

The Golden Bears’ 6-0 victory over Arizona and ace Jennie Finch stopped the Wildcats’ bid for a sixth title.


  • Most Outstanding Player – Jocelyn Forest, California
  • Batting Leader – Natasha Watley, UCLA – .462
  • RBI Leader – Jackie Coburn, Arizona – 4
  • Home Run Leader – 8 tied at 1
  • ERA Leader – Keira Goerl, UCLA – 0.35

2001 NCAA Women’s College World Series

2001 held at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on May 24-28.


Champion – Arizona Wildcats (65-4)
Runner Up – UCLA Bruins (62-6)


Arizona’s Jennie Finch finished her 32-0 season on the mound with a 1-0 win over UCLA in the Women’s College World Series championship game May 28 and was named the most-outstanding player in the tournament.

The championship match-up was a familiar one for Finch and the Wildcats, who faced their Pacific10 Conference rival for the fourth time of the season. Arizona had won two of the first three. The
two teams have now met six times in championship-game history. Arizona owns six NCAA titles, second to UCLA’s eight.

Home runs had been the difference for Arizona’s advancing to the championship game, including a home run in each of the Wildcats’ three games of the WCWS from senior Toni Mascarenas.

While UCLA pitcher Amanda Freed held Arizona to just three hits in the final, one a homer from senior catcher Lindsey Collins in the fourth inning made the difference in the game.


  • Most Outstanding Player – Jennie Finch, Arizona
  • Batting Leader – Christy Ring, Oklahoma – .636
  • RBI Leader – Toni Mascarenas, Arizona – 7
  • Home Run Leader – Toni Mascarenas, Arizona – 3
  • ERA Leader – Amanda Free, UCLA – 0.37

2000 NCAA Women’s College World Series

2000 held at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on May 25-29.


Champion – Oklahoma Sooners (66-8)
Runner Up – UCLA Bruins (46-12-1)


Oklahoma made it a year of first for its team and the Women’s College World Series as the Sooners claimed the national title with a 3-1 victory over defending champion UCLA May 29, at Don E. Porter Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City.

In their first trip to the Women’s College World Series, the Sooners became the first team west of the Rocky Mountains to win the title since 1987 and the first host institution in Division I softball
history to win the title.

The Sooners jumped ahead in the title game, 3-0, in the third inning with a two-run home run by Lisa Carey and an RBI single later in the inning by Kelli Braitsch. Although the Bruins would come back to score a run in the bottom of the sixth inning, Jennifer Stewart’s pitching maintained the Sooner’s two-run lead to claim the title.

Along with a local team came the fans as the Women’s College World Series set a new fourday attendance record of 38,102, which had previously been set at 27,553 in 1998. The championship match-up drew 8,049.

1999 NCAA Women’s College World Series

1999 held at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on May 27-31.


Champion – UCLA Bruins (63-6)
Runner Up – Washington Huskies (51-18)


The event returned to Oklahoma City after a one year hiatus, and it has remained there ever since. Arizona won their fifth NCAA championship by defeating UCLA 10–2 in the final game. Arizona pitcher Nancy Evans was named Women’s College World Series Most Outstanding Player.

The tournament also expanded from 32 to 48 teams with 8 regional sites hosting 6 teams each.

The winningest team in UCLA softball history set school records for runs scored (429), home runs (95) and total bases (1042), as the Bruins claimed the school’s ninth national championship. UCLA posted a 63-6 record, defeating all its non-conference opponents while winning its sixth Pac-10 title with a 22-6 mark. The Bruins won a school-record 35 games to start the season, averaging more than 6.5 runs per game.

The postseason was a clean sweep for the Bruins, going 4-0 in Regional play and 4-0 at the Women’s College World Series. UCLA outscored its opponents 38-5 during Regionals, but things were considerably closer in the World Series, as all four contests were one-run games with two going extra innings. In the championship game against Washington, the Bruins jumped on the Huskies with two in the first and one in the second. Adams singled in a pair to put UCLA up 2-0 and Dale led off the second with a solo homer to make it a three-run game. Washington rallied and had the tying run on base in the final inning, but Freed retired the final batter to make the Bruins victorious. Adams was named Most Outstanding Player of the World Series and was joined on the All-Tournament Team by Ambrosi, Dale and Freed.


  • Most Outstanding Player – Julie Adams, UCLA
  • Batting Leader – Christie Ambrosi, UCLA – .429
