With the 19 strikeouts Lawrie broke the
previous record of 16 set by teammate Caitlin Noble in
a six inning game against Willamette on February 19,
2005, and tied her own Husky mark for strikeouts in an
extra inning game, which she set on Wednesday, April
26 against top ranked UCLA a 3-2, 12 inning win.
Lawrie also moved into second place on the all-time
Husky single season strikeout list with 288, passing
Ashley Boek (283 in 2004) when she struck out Jessica

contact, a soft liner back to the circle by Mapes to
lead off the game and a line drive to left field by
Jackie Vasquez in the third. Lawrie got into a jam in
the sixth when she hit Heidi Knabe with a pitch and
Vasquez beat out a sacrifice bunt for a hit, but she
came back to strike out the side.
Arizona State got the only run of the game in
the top of the seventh when Rhiannon Baca led off with
a double to left and scored on a two out double by
Kim Zadrozny. It looked like Lawrie might escape
unscathed when she struck out Pac-10 home run leader
Mindy Cowles looking and pinch hitter Jen McCard
swinging, but Zadrozny lined a 2-1 changeup from
Lawrie down the left field line to plate Baca.
Katie Burkhart (21-3) outdueled Lawrie,
pitching the complete game shutout, allowing only one
hit and two walks while striking out 15. She had a no
