Kathy Slaten apparently has become too good for her own good. So for the good of her health and well-being, she says, she will not return for her senior season of softball--or education--at Cal State Northridge. "I'm not playing next year," the 21-year-old junior said. "I don't enjoy (softball) anymore, it's not fun. There's too much pressure. Teams are not so much out to beat Northridge as they are out to beat me."

She was considered among the most potent softball pitchers in the country, one of a select few invited to try out for the 1987 U.S. team that would compete in the Pan American Games. It was, at that time, the highest honor a softball player could achieve--the equivalent of being asked to try out for the 1996 Olympic team. Few would balk at that kind of opportunity. But Kathy Slaten, a four-time All-American at Cal State Northridge, decided to pass on the offer.

Kathy Slaten pitched both games for Cal State Northridge's softball team as the Lady Matadors split a double-header at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo on Wednesday.

In the second game, Slaten came back to strike out six as CSUN won, 4-1, in 10 innings. Beth Onesting tied the score at 1-1 in the seventh with a triple.

For Lady Matadors Jamie Gray, Terri Lamoree, Nancy Lucero and Kathy Slaten, there really is no tomorrow. Today is the last day of their softball lives. But the four seniors on the Cal State Northridge team can make it a memorable final day. They have an opportunity to play their entire college careers knowing nothing but national championships. It won't be easy, however. CSUN, the three-time defending Division II national champion, must sweep a doubleheader from Stephen F.

Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, the top-ranked Division II softball team, needed an extra inning to beat Cal State Northridge in the first game of a doubleheader on Saturday. CSUN, ranked No. 2 in the nation, needed only Kathy Slaten to win the second game. Slaten (18-4) shut down Cal Poly on just three hits, and her teammates pounded out 12 hits en route to a 5-1 victory. In the first game, Cal Poly's Lorie Norcia singled home the winning run in the bottom of the eighth inning.

The Cal State Northridge women's softball team begins its drive for a fourth consecutive NCAA Division II championship today against UCLA, the defending Division I national champion, in a doubleheader in Westwood. The Lady Matadors, however, will begin the season without three-time All-America pitcher Kathy Slaten. Slaten will miss the first two weeks because of an injury to her right hand.

The numbers carefully painted on the back of the home dugout at the Cal State Northridge softball field are intentionally set to the left, leaving plenty of room. They read "CCAA 82 83 84 85," referring to the previous four Lady Matador championships in the California Collegiate Athletic Assn. On Tuesday at Cal State Dominguez Hills, CSUN earned the right to break out more paint by sweeping a doubleheader, 1-0 and 2-0.

Like a finely tuned automobile, the Cal State Northridge softball team appears to be cruising easily toward its fourth consecutive NCAA Division II championship. CSUN, the nation's top-ranked team in the latest coaches' poll, coasted through a California Collegiate Athletic Assn. doubleheader sweep of Cal State Bakersfield with a pair of shutouts Tuesday at Lady Matador Field. Kathy Slaten pitched Northridge to a 4-0 win in the first game and saved Delanee Anderson's 2-0 win in the second game.

Gary Torgeson, Cal State Northridge softball coach, says he keeps 25 players on the roster because, "You never know when an accident might happen." And Torgeson expects the unexpected whenever the Lady Matadors play Cal State Dominguez Hills. On Saturday at CSUN, the Lady Matadors swept Dominguez Hills, 4-0 and 3-1, in a California Collegiate Athletic Assn. doubleheader. That was no accident, but Northridge players were involved in all kinds of mishaps before and during the games.

Freshmen athletes usually try to ease the transition from high school to college sports by trying to fit in with their new coach and teammates. When Barbara Jordan came to Cal State Northridge three years ago, however, it wasn't acceptance she was after. She only wanted to prove to her teammates that she could play softball. "She was real obnoxious and loud," CSUN pitcher Kathy Slaten recalled about Jordan. "It was hard for her at the beginning because she was rowdy."

The only one unimpressed with Kathy Slaten's latest no-hitter, it seems, was Slaten herself. "I wasn't mentally prepared today," said Slaten, Cal State Northridge's senior pitcher. "I was sluggish and could've thrown better. I haven't pitched a good game this season." That, at least, was Slaten's opinion after she pitched her third no-hitter of the season and 21st of her career to start the Lady Matador softball team toward a sweep of Oregon State, 2-0 and 3-0, Thursday at CSUN.
