No one knew it at the time, but Sandy Olivas, a senior third baseman on the Chapman softball team, began this season as the career home run leader in NCAA Division II. Olivas entered the season with 35 home runs, three more than the record recognized by the NCAA. Kim Kouri, who hit 32 homers for Augustana (S.D.) from 1988-91, was credited with the record because the NCAA hadn't been informed of Olivas' career home run statistics.

Apparently, it takes more than a .432 batting average and 13 home runs to make Chapman College's Sandy Olivas believe she is a standout softball player. "I really never considered myself an outstanding player," Olivas said. "I was really more into having fun and just playing." Olivas, who plays third base, was among the few who were surprised that she was a first-team All-American selection.
