Washington softball coach Heather Tarr picked up her 600th victory Sunday as the No. 5 Huskies won their second game at the Judi Garman Classic in Fullerton, Calif., on Sunday.
The 600 wins are more than any coach in any other sport in UW history.
The milestone win came in a 2-0 win against Cal State Fullerton. Taran Alvelo struck out a career-high 16 in seven shutout innings. She gave up three hits and three walks.
Earlier in the day, UW (16-3) lost to Michigan 4-2.
The Huskies make their home debut Friday for the Husky Classic. UW opens play at their tourney against Ohio State at 3:45 p.m. and Northern Illinois at 6 p.m.
