HOLLOS-WELL THAT ENDS WELL

Alicia Hollowell shutout Northwestern for the third time this season as Arizona defeated NU 5-0 to win the WCWS two games to none. 4,423 fans were on hand at Don E. Porter Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City to see Arizona win its 7th title. Remarkably Northwestern amassed nine hits, but couldn’t dent home plate against Hollowell, who was tough when she had to be. Their best scoring opportunity came in the 3rd inning when NU loaded the bases with nobody out, Amegin just missed a big two out hit on a fly ball to left. They went down fighting to the end as the Purple Wildcats loaded the bases with two outs in the 7th, to no avail. 10 runners were stranded in the game by NU, 8 times they struck out looking. The Arizona Ace struck out 13 in the game, 64 for the series, eclipsed the series record of 62 set by Debbie Doom of UCLA in 1982.
