Cordova Notes: Has a lot of movement and mixes speeds well ... done nothing but improve since arriving on campus ... will throw some comfortable innings early and play a role as a closer before hopefully earning some starts.

2014: Maintains a 7-3 record through nine starts this season with a team-low 3.36 ERA in 75.0 innings ... has thrown three complete games this season ... first career complete game came against UTEP (2/14), allowing three runs on eight hits, striking out five and walking four ... second complete game of the season came at No. 1 UCLA (3/30) where she did not allow a run in the first 3.2 innings ... in 6.0 total innings against the Bruins (3/30), yielded four earned runs on seven hits with four strikeouts ... most recent complete game came in Utah's series opener against Oregon State (4/4), where she allowed two earned runs to the Beavers on eight hits to go with four strikeouts.
