PULLMAN, Wash. -- While small in stature, Washington State shortstop Shawn Stevenson has been carrying a big bat. Stevenson has surpassed former Cougar John Olerud as the school-record holder for most consecutive games with a hit. Olerud, who set the old mark of 22 games in 1988, is currently playing for the New York Mets.

April 13th, 1997 is the day that Stevenson last walked off the field without recording at least one hit. Since that game against the University of Washington, the 5-9, 145 pound switch hitter has hit in 27 consecutive games. He surpassed Olerud's mark February 14th with a single against the nationally-ranked Arizona State Sun Devils.

While hitting in the leadoff position this year for the Cougars (5-4), Stevenson is hitting an even .300 (12/40) and has started all nine games at shortstop. During the streak, Stevenson has gone 46-for-120, with a batting average of .383. Stevenson is a product of Cascade High School (Everett, Wash.), where he played under coach Bob Smithston.

Here is how Stevenson has hit during the 27 game hitting streak:
