Pac-10 Softball Power Rankings

No. 1 Washington (33-3, 5-1 Pac-10) LAST WEEK: No. 1

Teams will say they don’t look at rankings, but after a dominant sweep of Arizona, it’s hard to believe the Huskies weren’t playing to retain their No. 1 spot.

No. 9 ASU (35-6, 4-2) LAST WEEK: No. 3

In both high- and low-scoring games, ASU rebounded from a tough opening series against Arizona for its first-ever sweep of the powerhouse UCLA Bruins in Westwood, Calif.


No. 2 Arizona (32-7, 2-4) LAST WEEK: No. 2

Whether it was a step back or a wake-up call, the Wildcats saw how far they have to go while playing the Huskies this weekend.

No. 5 UCLA (27-9, 1-5) LAST WEEK: No. 4

Trying to keep pace with a talented ASU offense, the Bruins just couldn’t muster enough of their own scoring against the Sun Devils’ deep pitching staff.

No. 9 Stanford (30-6, 4-2) LAST WEEK: No. 5

The Cardinal beat the Beavers twice before the Oregon State bats, behind freshman Lea Cavestany’s six RBIs, lit up Stanford for 10 runs and a win.

No. 21 Oregon (28-6, 5-1) LAST WEEK: No. 7

Maybe they’re mad about the traditional Pac-10 powers getting the attention. Oregon swept California in its first conference sweep in five years.

No. 15 Cal (30-11, 1-5) LAST WEEK: No. 6

Playing two of the bottom-tier teams in the league with a 1-5 conference record, it can only get worse for the Golden Bears.

Oregon State (21-18, 2-4) LAST WEEK: No. 8

The Beavers are gritty, stealing another game from a top-25 opponent for the second week in a row.
