The Santa Clara softball team had a successful 2003 season, breaking numerous team and individual program marks. The Broncos joined the Pacific Coast Softball Conference and went into the final doubleheader with a chance to win the league title. Santa Clara did sweep two major PCSC awards, as head coach Marcy Crouch was named the Coach of the Year, while junior Jaime Forman-Lau earned Pitcher of the Year honors.
Crouch led the Broncos to a second-place finish in the inaugural year of the league. In her fourth year at the helm of the SCU program, Crouch guided the team through a milestone season, posting a record 30 victories, more than any other Bronco squad in the 25-year history of the program.
Forman-Lau was a seven-time PCSC Pitcher of the Week winner, and led the conference with 112 strikeouts in 94 innings pitched through 14 appearances. PCSC opponents hit only .123 against Forman-Lau, as she boasted a 0.89 ERA in conference play. She shattered the school’s strikeout record with 279.
