Pac-10 Softball Power Rankings

No. 1 Washington (30-3, 2-1 Pac-10)

The Huskies took a loss to a tough UCLA squad over the weekend, giving teams like Arizona and Stanford reason to believe Washington isn’t invincible.

No. 2 Arizona (30-4, 2-1)

It’s safe to say Arizona has the talent to go far if it pulls everything together. The Wildcats showed off their bats twice versus ASU but sandwiched an 11-1 loss between two blowout wins.

No. 10 ASU (32-6, 1-2)

Showing a glimpse of their explosive offense and young pitcher Sam Parlich’s talent, the Sun Devils throttled Arizona in one win. Now it’s about being consistent.

No. 5 UCLA (27-6, 1-2)

Maybe the Bruins stole one in a 1-0, Game 1 victory against Washington. In the rest of the series, however, they gave reason to believe the conference could very well be a four-team race.

No. 11 Stanford (27-5, 2-1)

Stanford’s offense won’t be enough to keep up with the title chase, but it did enough to take two games from the Cal Bears.

No. 14 California (29-8, 1-2)

The Golden Bears are gritty but didn’t have the execution to win the series against the Cardinal.

No. 21 Oregon (26-6, 2-1)

Oregon likes close games and wins them regularly, but taking a loss to the rival Beavers won’t help its cause.

Oregon State (20-16, 1-2)

Hey, the Beavers weren’t as bad as originally thought, playing toughly against a ranked Oregon team in three games.
