Oregon hasn't been beaten this season in Pac-12 play when it comes to softball. All of the games will be televised on the Pac-12 Networks and Pac-12 pitcher of the week, Cheridan Hawkins, will be pitching for the Ducks.
Spring practices start on Monday and here is a list of players to watch. Although big play VA won't be on campus until this summer there is a bunch of players to pay attention to. The quarterback position will be a heavy contest this spring and who will come in on defense to make an impact?
