May 6, 2002

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - UCLA catcher Stacey Nuveman has been named Pac-10 Player of the Week, while Arizona's Jennie Finch was named Pitcher of the Week for April 29 - May 5, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced today.

Nuveman, a senior from LaVerne, Calif., posted a .571 batting average (4-for-7) with one double, two home runs, five walks and an on-base percentage of .750 this weekend, helping the Bruins remain tied for first place in the Conference.

Last Saturday (May 4), Nuveman broke the NCAA career home run record at the OSU Softball Complex with her 16th homer of the season and 86th round-tripper of her UCLA career. The following day, Nuveman hit another home run adding to the record, which now stands at 87 homers all-time.

On the season, Nuveman is hitting .555 with 17 home runs, 58 RBI, a 1.066 slugging percentage and a .674 on-base percentage.

Finch, a senior, from La Mirada, Calif., went 3-0 last week against the likes of No. 4 Arizona State, No. 5 California and No. 8 Stanford. Finch ended the week with an 0.67 ERA. She gave up 11 hits and four runs in 21.0 innings of work while striking out 18 batters.

Overall, Finch is 29-2 with an 0.78 ERA. She is second in the Pac-10 with 293 strikeouts in 206.2 innings pitched. Finch has also posted 17 shutouts this season.

It is the 10th weekly honor for Nuveman and the 68th for UCLA all-time. Finch garners the seventh award of her career. Arizona has now received 73 honors all-time.
