An updated record book, chronicling the Nevada Wolf Pack softball team's success in 2013, is now available at http://grfx.cstv.com/photos/schools/unv/sports/w-softbl/auto_pdf/2012-13/misc_non_event/199.pdf.

The record book available now will hold current statistics when the Pack begins its 2014 season next Spring.

In 2013, the Wolf Pack was 30-23 overall and set or tied a number of the program's offensive records, including those for slugging and on-base percentage, and led the country in doubles per game. In Mountain West play, the Pack was 9-9 and finished tied for fourth, three spots higher than it was picked in the pre-season.

Nevada doubled 102 times, breaking the record set by the vaunted offense of 2008 despite playing nine less games. The rate of 1.92 per game made Nevada the national leader on a per-game basis. The Pack slugged .477, seven points better than the offense of 2009 and got on base at a clip of .399, 11 points better than the group in 2008. The Pack scored 10-or-more runs in nine games, winning all of them. In 23 games, the team in Navy scored at least six runs, going a spectacular 20-3 in those games. As a team, Nevada hit .311, one point shy of the best number for any Nevada lineup.

Six players drove in at least 30 runs, with three players doubling at least 15 times. The six players that had 30 RBI also each hit at least five home runs. The Pack scored 284 runs in 53 games or 5.36 per game for the 45th best number nationally.

Individually, Nevada junior and All-Mountain West performer Karley Hopkins set the single-season record for runs scored, crossing the plate 45 times. Erin Jones tied the previous record for doubles in a season, collecting two bases on 18 occasions.

These record-setting offensive performances helped Nevada win 30 games for the first time since 2009, but it wasn't solely about the bat in 2013. Defensively, Nevada set the school record for fielding percentage at .965. The Pack made only 52 errors, the fewest of any team in the program's history, with 1,063 putouts and 362 assists. Hopkins fielded .972 in 53 games at second base, while freshman Jasmine Jenkins, who was also All-Mountain West selection, fielded .961 in 46 games at third base.
