2. Jocelyn Forest is leaving her mark at Cal. The senior pitcher is 20-12 on the season, making her only the second Bear in history to record four 20-plus win seasons.

Forest started half of Cal's games this season, logging a total of 217 innings.

The 2001 second team All-American has notched 16 double-digit strikeout performances while piling up 309 punchouts on the season.

Forest is second all-time at Cal in wins (94), innings (923) and strikeouts (1123).

3. Laura Schott continues to be one of the top women's soccer players in the nation.

The junior forward led the Pac-10 in goals (15) and points (33), and was named to the first team All-Pac-10 team for the second consecutive season.

Schott is currently second place on the all-time Cal lists for career points (110) and goals (49), trailing only U.S. national team member Joy Fawcett.

4. Candace Harper has been a critical element in the Cal softball team's success.

While starting all 64 games at the hot corner, the senior has notched 107 assists.

Batting in front of Veronica Nelson and Courtney Scott, Harper has turned 66 hits and a .316 batting average into team highs of 106 total bases and 41 runs.

5. Jennifer Joyce, a senior member of the track and field team, set a Cal record of 214 feet in the hammer throw last weekend at the Big Meet. The mark qualifies Joyce for her fourth appearance at the NCAA Championships.

For her April 20th performance at the Mount San Antonio College Relays, Joyce was named Pac-10 women's field athlete of the week for the second time in her career.

6. Vikki Laing has been one of Cal's strongest golfers all season. She posted a 74.5 stroke average in the fall, second-best on the team.

For the season, she has posted five top-10 finishes and seven top-25 finishes. She has been the low scorer for the Bears in six tournaments.

Perhaps her most impressive accomplishment this season was her score of 214 at the Arizona State Invitational in April, breaking the school scoring record for a 54-hole tournament by one stroke.

7. Nora Feddersen followed up a strong freshman year with a solid sophomore campaign for the Cal field hockey team.

The 2001 All-American and first team All-NorPac selection notched a conference-leading 11 goals and 28 points in the regular season.

Feddersen was named NorPac tournament Most Valuable Player, notching two goals during competition.

8. Brenna Fleener will leave Spieker Aquatics Center after leading the Cal women's water polo team (18-8) to another solid season.

The four-year starter captained the squad this season. Fleener finished with a team-high and personal record of 43 goals, including four in her final match as a Bear, giving her 152 in her career.

9. Catherine Lynch had a break-through season this year. In the span

of a year, she moved from No. 4 to No. 1 in the Cal women's tennis rotation.

Lynch had the second best singles record on the team at 13-5, second on the team behind junior captain Christina Fusano.

The team voted Lynch the most-improved player this fall, with impressive runs at the Rivera's All-American Championships and the Omni Hotel's Indoor Championships.

Her ascension to the top-spot culminated with her impressive win over Arizona's No. 1 player, Maja Mlakar.

10. Ami Forney was thrust into one of the most difficult situations any senior can imagine. After making a run at the postseason as a junior with a veteran squad, she was surrounded by nine newcomers-including seven freshman.

Forney led the women's basketball team in scoring and rebounding this season, despite facing constant double and triple teams as the Bears primary offensive weapon. She also led Cal in blocks and field goal percentage.
