Former San Diego State softball pitching great Sandra Durazo was inducted into the Aztec Hall of Fame on Dec. 3. Durazo, who joined three other SDSU athletes and an NAIA baseball national championship team, is the second softball player to make the school's Hall of Fame (Trish Mang - 1994).

Over her four-year career from 1998-2001, Durazo went 87-53 with a 1.82 ERA. She struck out 543 batters over 879 innings and held opponents to a .240 batting average. She led San Diego State in ERA and wins in all four of her seasons, and led the team in strikeouts three times.

A two-time all-Mountain West selection (2000-01) and 2001 MW Pitcher of the Year, Durazo had a magnificent senior season en route to earning first-team NFCA All-West Region honors. In 2001, Durazo was 30-15 with a 1.53 ERA over a remarkable 297 1/3 innings. She struck out 203, and had 35 complete games and 10 shutouts, while limiting her opponents to a .217 batting average.

Durazo capped her career by leading the Aztecs to their first-ever NCAA tournament appearance in 2001, which ended with a loss in the regional championship (one game short of the Women's College World Series). Durazo started all five games in the 2001 NCAA tournament, going 3-2 with two shutouts. She left the regional championship game in the fourth inning to a standing ovation, having pitched 107 1/3 consecutive innings.

A two-time Academic all-MW selection (2000-01) and nine-time conference pitcher/player of the week, Durazo still owns five career school records and four season marks. Durazo's career records include wins (87), appearances (165), games started (116), complete games (95) and innings pitched (879.0), while her season records (set in 2001) include wins (30, tied), games started (40), complete games (35) and innings pitched (297.1).
