She went from hitting a final .193 with five RBI and 17 runs as a freshman to ending 2010 as the squad's third best hitter at .339 and with the second-most hits (62) and third-most doubles (11). She received just desserts as a Pac-10 honorable mention.

Law & Order, Frani Style:
Following her tenure at Cal, Frani Echavarria has aspirations of going to law school so she can become a defense attorney. She notes that she has always wanted to be a lawyer but would like to help people, thus the career as a public defender, so she can protect the innocent. She is also the first member of her family to attend college.

No Clowning Around:
When asked for a unique fact, Frani Echavarria is quick to respond that she gets nervous around clowns! Frani is not alone for many people suffer from coulrophobia, a fancy word for the abnormal, exaggerated, or irrational fear of clowns.

Why I Have My Number:
"When I was younger, we were picking out numbers and my coach said no one can just wear number 1. Anyone who has number 1 has to have to have an attitude and an edge and be tough on the field. So I asked if I could have the number and he looked at me and said, yea you can wear it. I've worn it ever since."

My Walk-Up Songs Are:
"My walk up songs this year is "Show Me What You Got" by Jay-Z and "Danza Kuduro" by Don Omar and Lucenzo. I chose song one because it's one of those songs that always gets me hyped for the game. I chose song two because the music just makes me feel good and want to dance! It's one of my all time favorite songs."
