The Washington softball team, ranked No. 12 by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association and No. 14 by ESPN, will begin the season at the Kajikawa Classic in Tempe, Ariz., on Thursday.

Pac-12 foe and defending national champion Arizona State will host the tournament with games at both ASU's stadium and at the Tempe Sports Complex.

The Huskies open the weekend by taking on No. 21/20 Nebraska at 1 p.m. at the Tempe Sports Complex. The Huskies will play San Jose State at 2 p.m. Friday in their only game at ASU's stadium.

The Huskies play Idaho State at 7:30 a.m. Saturday followed by a 1 p.m. game against Northwestern. UW concludes the tournament at 7:30 a.m. Sunday against Texas State.

Nebraska reached the Stanford Regional final in 2011, falling to the Cardinal.

Washington seniors Kimi Pohlman and Nikia Williams were among 50 players named to the "Watch List" for the 2012 USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year award, announced Wednesday by the Amateur Softball Association of America. Williams was a Top 25 finalist last year.

The Huskies seek their 19th consecutive postseason appearance.

Notes

• The Central Washington baseball team allowed seven unanswered runs in a 7-5 opening loss to host San Francisco State at Maloney Field. Junior catcher Kyle Sani of Southridge High in Kennewick went 3 for 4 and drove in two runs, helping the Wildcats build a 4-0 lead in the first inning before the Gators rallied.

Brady Kincannon of Decatur High had three hits for the Wildcats.

• Seattle Pacific junior Stephanie Wagner, who won the balance beam and floor competitions Friday, was named the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF) Gymnast of the Week.
