Stanford legend Dana Sorensen has been chosen for entrance into the school's athletics Hall of Fame, it was announced on Tuesday.
Sorensen is one of eight athletes that make up the class of 2015. She is joined in induction by Matt Gentry (wrestling); Alex Karakozoff (football); Ogonna Nnamani (women's volleyball); Kyle Peterson (baseball); Nicole Powell (women's basketball); Rick Schavone (diving head coach); and Tara Kirk (women's swimming).
Sorensen is a 2004 Cardinal graduate; she enjoyed an excellent four-year career that put her name amongst the conversation of the best in school history. With a 105-34 career record and a still-standing school record 1.05 ERA, she twice earned first-team all-American honors. She also was named to the all-American second team in 2000.
Sorensen's name appears in the school record books numerous times, as she still stands 2nd all-time in strikeouts (1,154); 2nd in innings pitched (946.2); and 3rd in shutouts (32). She boasts a trio of all-conference first-team nods.
Following her Cardinal career, Sorensen played for two seasons in the NPF and coached collegiately at UC-Davis and Oregon State. She now co-owns her own business and gives private pitching lessons.
The class of 2-15 will officially be inducted into the Hall of Fame on October 16th. They will also be introduced on the field at halftime of the Stanford/UCLA football game the day before, October 15th, on ESPN.
