#5 Stacey Jennings
2003-05 | P/OF | 5-10 | R/R | Aurora, Colo.

Jennings was a force both in the batter's box and in the pitcher's circle. Her 2003 debut season was one of the most impressive all-around performances by a Tennessee player as she hit .307 with 10 homers, nine doubles, one triple, 40 RBIs and 29 runs and went 21-15 with a 1.73 ERA and 117 strikeouts. On Feb. 3, 2003, Jennings threw the first perfect game in Tennessee history, holding UNLV to no hits and no baserunners and striking out six over seven shutout innings of a 3-0 UT win. For her career, she hit .279 with 14 homers, 22 doubles two triples, 88 RBIs, 78 runs and 20 stolen bases. She also compiled a 34-21 record, 1.82 ERA, 240 strikeouts, 26 complete games and 14 shutouts in the circle.
