Lovieanna Jung HOF
     Arguably the nation's best power hitter as a senior, Lovie Jung helped lead Arizona to a 56-7 record, its seventh Pac-10 Conference championship and the program's 16th consecutive Women's College World Series appearance in 2003. She led the team in batting average, runs, doubles, triples home runs and runs batted in, and led the nation with 25 home runs and 79 RBIs. Her career batting average of .461 at the time of her induction was No. 8 in UofA history and her 41 home runs No. 10 on the storied program's charts. She was a finalist for the Honda Softball Award and the USA Softball National Player of the Year. A first-team All-American selection by the NFCA, Jung also earned All-WCWS honors. As a junior in 2002 after transferring from Fresno State (where she earned third-team All-America honors twice), Jung was the Pac-10 Newcomer of the Year and first-team All-Pac-10. Jung went on to play for the U.S. Olympic team in its gold-medal jaunt through the 2004 Athens Olympics and for Team USA in its silver-medal finish at the Beijing Olympics in 2008.
