The Huskies find Puerto Vallarta so nice, they’ll play in it twice in 2019 – Washington is in both the Feb. 7-10 and Feb. 14-17 sessions. The Huskies also have good memories from the Puerto Vallarta event in 2017, when they beat then-No. 1 Oklahoma and No. 2 Auburn. Washington’s 2018 season saw it hold the No. 1 ranking for extended periods and should be tough again with senior pitcher Taran Alvelo (23-5, 1.30 ERA, 242 Ks in 188 innings) and Australian sophomore Gabbie Plain (22-5, 1.01 ERA, 181 Ks in 166.1 innings). Junior second baseman Sis Bates was a first-team all-American and Pac-12 defensive player of the year; she hit .389 last year.
