Ducks’ season ends without a trip to World Series

Cheridan Hawkins

Cheridan Hawkins’ career at Oregon came to an end yesterday after four stellar seasons. By the end of Saturday it seemed the #5 Ducks would be headed to the World Series again. With #1 Florida being upset and knocked out and the Ducks up 1-0 on UCLA at home in the Super Regionals, the odds of Oregon winning the whole thing looked possible. Then, Sunday, just two outs away from a trip to Oklahoma City, UCLA came back to win the game 2-1, forcing another game which they also took 2-1. The Ducks outscored the Bruins 10-5 in the series, and Oregon won the regular-season Pac-12 title, but neither of those things mattered. UCLA is moving on, and the Ducks are done.

Over four years, Cheridan threw almost 800 innings, struck out over a thousand batters, compiled a 1.66 ERA, a won-loss record of 108-20, and earned 17 saves.

Oregon Ducks Softball – Cheridan Hawkins struck out 11 Wisconsin batters in 7 innings

@OregonSB @CheridanH11 The Ducks hosted three other teams trying to get through them to the 2014 College Softball World Series this weekend. The regionals are a double-elimination format. The #1 ranked Ducks didn’t even use their one allowed loss. Instead, they went 3-0 to set up next weekend’s best two out of three series with #16 Minnesota. The winner will be going to the NCAA Women’s College Softball World Series.

Cheridan Hawkins is 31-4 so far this season with 302 strikeouts in 217 innings of work. Wisconsin was ranked #25 before losing twice to Oregon.
