Jolene Henderson earned her 120th career victory, passing Michele Granger as the winningest pitcher in Cal softball history, as the Bears defeated Utah 4-1 Sunday at Levine-Fricke Field.

"We've had a number of All-American pitchers here at Cal that have pitched at the Olympic level and the USA level, and here comes Jolene and she has now broken the mark to be the all-time winningest pitcher," Cal coach Diane Ninemire said. "That is a phenomenal accomplishment by a great player and a great team player."

Henderson, a senior, allowed one run on five hits to improve to 22-2 with a 0.94 ERA for the season. Her career record is 120-26 with an ERA of 1.22.

Granger amassed 119 wins from 1989-93 and helped Team USA win gold at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics.
