MEDIA RELEASE

Dominating pitching performances and dangerous offensive performances delivered the University of Hawaii at Hilo another pair of 8-0 TKO wins over Dominican University in Pacific West Conference games on the UHH softball field.

The Vulcans improve to 12-5 overall and 8-4 in the PacWest while the Lady Penguins are 1-7 overall and 1-5 in the PacWest.

The Vulcans pounded out 21 hits over the two games and produced 12 RBI yet still stranded 16 batters.
“I like to do a lot of bunting and running,” said UHH head coach Gwen Kagaoan. “We did that very well this four-game series. We pushed runners to scoring positions and were able to capitalize on that. The girls were very focused and our goal was to get timely hits which we did at times.”

Dana Lee led the team in the first game with three singles while Nicole Alconcel and Sierra Green collected two hits each. Alconcel delivered a 2-run homerun.

In the second game, Brittany Spencer collected three hits while Alconcel, Bryanna Hardy and Aisha Sueda paired hits. Hardy also had four RBI.

Both Amber Waracka and Christina Pedroza tossed one-hitters with Waracka striking out six in game one and Pedroza tallying three in game two.

“The pitchers were hitting their spots,” said Kagaoan. “Their number one job is to induce the ground balls and flyouts and that’s what they did.

“We’re very sound defensively, and with everything working together and our pitching we’re going to be tough to beat.”
