Native Nevadan: Of the five freshmen and 18 student-athletes on the squad, Ashley Decker is the only American not from the state of California. Decker came to Berkeley by way of Sparks, Nev. In each of her four years as a prepster at Spanish Springs High School, Decker was named first-team all-state and all-league, winning three Nevada state championships.

Why I Have My Number: My favorite numbers are 1, 22 and 23. I was number 1 in high school, was born on the 22nd and I just like the number 23. At Cal, I asked for 23, which was also my travel ball number.
