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.

1992 NCAA Women’s College World Series

1992 held at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on May 23-26.


Champion – UCLA Bruins (54-2)
Runner Up – Arizona Wildcats (58-7)


With the game scoreless in the bottom of the seventh inning, freshman Jenny Brewster blasted a two-run walk-off home run to claim the title for UCLA against rival, Arizona. Lisa Fernandez was a picture of perfection, winning the championship game to cap off a 29-0 season. It was an NCAA first, for a pitcher to go unbeaten and win the final.

After Arizona spoiled UCLA’s chances of four consecutive NCAA Championships in 1991, the Bruins exacted revenge the following year with a title-game victory against their Pac-10 rival. UCLA went 54-2 overall, but both losses came at the hands of Arizona, allowing the Wildcats to end the Bruins’ run of four straight Pac-10 titles. UCLA started the season with 33 straight wins, crushing opponents by a 166-17 margin.

Following their first loss to Arizona, the Bruins ran off another 14-game win streak, blanking foes in 10 of the victories. After falling in the regular-season finale against the Wildcats, UCLA finished the year with an undefeated postseason, including a title-game win over Arizona.

Junior Lisa Fernandez was masterful both in the circle and at the plate. She posted a nation-best ERA of 0.14 and was undefeated on the year at 29-0. The All-American and Honda Award winner was outstanding at the plate also, hitting .401 with 29 runs batted in.

Not to be forgotten in the circle were junior hurlers DeeDee Weiman (11-1, 0.51 ERA) and Heather Compton (14-1, 0.67 ERA), who combined for 16 shutouts and 274 strikeouts.

Senior All-American Yvonne Gutierrez was the powerful stick in the lineup, leading the club with a .406 average, 11 home runs and 58 RBI. Her 11 home runs tied for the NCAA lead.

Fernandez and Gutierrez were joined on the All-American team by freshmen Joanne Alchin (.323 BA) and Kathi Evans (.363).

As a team, the Bruins hit .304 and had five players bat above the .300 mark.

The Bruins skated past Utah in the Regional round and then blew away their first four opponents in the College World Series, winning by a combined score of 29-1 and recording two mercy-rule victories.

In the championship game, it was a pitcher’s duel between Fernandez and Arizona’s Debby Day. The duo matched zeroes on the board until the bottom of the seventh inning. Gutierrez led off the frame with a single, moved over to second on a sacrifice by Jennifer Brundage and came home on Jenny Brewster’s walk-off home run to left.

Fernandez, who finished the year with 65 straight scoreless innings, was named to the All-Tournament Team along with Evans, Gutierrez and Kelly Inouye.

1992 UCLA Bruins

1991 NCAA Women’s College World Series

1991 held at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on May 23-26.


Champion – Arizona Wildcats (56-16)
Runner Up – UCLA Bruins (56-7)


Arizona wins its first women’s team national championship in any sport. Pitching (Debby Day 30-8, 0.50; Susie Parra 14-3, 0.43; Julie Jones 12-5, 1.21) and defense (.970 team fielding percentage, Julie Standering 187 assists at shortstop) were keys to the season. The Cats also stole 119 bases. Jones (.350), Jamie Heggen (.330), Kristin Gauthier (.300), Standering (.296) and Jody Miller (.272) had outstanding seasons at the plate.

The Cats beat No. 1-ranked UCLA twice at the College World Series to earn the championship, including a 5-1 victory in the title game. UA had four extra-inning games in the classic. The Cats used short-game tactics much of the year and were led by Standering with 30 and Miller with 20 stolen bases. Arizona finished the year 56-16 overall. The Cats were frustrated in the tough Pac-10 Conference at 11-9 and a fourth-place finish.

1990 held at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on May 23-27.


Champion – UCLA Bruins (62-7)
Runner Up – Fresno State Bulldogs (29-7)


This year was the first WCWS held at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City and it has been the host ever since except for 1998 when it was run at the site of the Olympics.

The Bruins quickly dispatched of Northern Iowa in Regional play and won their first four contests at the initial Women’s College World Series to be played in Oklahoma City. For the third straight season, Fresno State stood in the way of UCLA and a national championship. Attempting to avenge their previous two losses, the Bulldogs won a 1-0, elimination game against the Bruins to force a winner-take-all final.

UCLA jumped out to an early 1-0 lead with a first-inning run when Shanna Flynn scored on a wild pitch. Then in the third inning, a downpour caused the game to be suspended and resume the following afternoon.

The Bruins came out the next day and immediately tacked on an insurance run in the bottom of the third when Kerry Dienelt drove in Michelle Montgomery. Compton took care of the rest, one-hitting the Bulldogs to finish off the three-peat.

Dienelt, Fernandez, Flynn, Gutierrez and Longaker were all named to the All-Tournament Team.

1989 UCLA Bruins

1988 NCAA Women’s College World Series

1988 held at Twin Creek Sports Complex in Sunnyvale, California on May 25-29.


Champion – UCLA Bruins (53-8)
Runner Up – Fresno State Bulldogs (29-5)


The 1988 event was the first WCWS played in Sunnyvale.

The NCAA Tournament began with a two-game sweep of Cal State Fullerton in Regional play. For the first time, the Women’s College World Series was held in California, as the Bruins traveled north to Sunnyvale. UCLA won its first four games by a 16-2 margin to advance to the championship against Fresno State. Needing to win a pair from the Bruins, the Bulldogs took the first step with a 2-1 victory in game one, setting up a winner-take-all showdown for the title.

As she had done all season, Longaker was masterful in the circle, hurling her 23rd shutout of the year. The Bruins gave her the only offense she needed in the fourth inning when Parks doubled in Stacy Sunny and Maynez to put UCLA on top 2-0.

The Bruins added an insurance run in the seventh on a Shanna Flynn RBI single and won the sport’s fifth national championship.

Flynn, Longaker and Sunny were joined on the All-Tournament Team by Kerry Dienelt and Missy Phillips.

UCLA had to fight out of the loser’s bracket following a second game loss to Cal State Fullerton.
