All Arizona Podcast: NCAA softball home run race conversation with Stacie Chambers

During the 2011 Arizona softball season catcher, Stacie Chambers was chasing the all-time home run record in college softball, which at the time was held by former UCLA Bruins hitter Stacey Nuveman with 90 career bombs. 

Chambers set the career home runs mark for Arizona during that season at 87 but fell three home runs short of tying Nuveman for the record.

Now, 10 years later, current Arizona shortstop Jessie Harper finds herself chasing an all-time home run record set by Oklahoma’s Lauren Chamberlain, who holds the record at 95. Harper sits at 86, just one blast shy of tying Chambers for fourth all-time and six away from the school record set by Katiyana Mauga in 2017. 

Here’s is the current NCAA all-time home run charts as Harper is now nine homers away from tying Chamberlain for the record:
