After a slow start the University of Hawaii at Hilo pulled out a sweep of Notre Dame de Namur University in a Pacific West Conference doubleheader on the UHH softball field.
Game scores were 1-0 and 8-0 (TKO).

The Vulcans improved to 14-5 overall and 10-4 in the PacWest while the Argonauts are 4-12 overall and 2-6 in the PacWest.

The first game started out as basic Vulcan softball with lead-off batter Sierra Green getting to on base this time after being hit by a pitch. Amanda Tellez moved her to second on a ground out. After a wild pitch, Green scored on Bryanna Hardy’s single.

Following that opening the Vulcans went on to strand 11 base runners while collecting just four more hits. Both Green and Aisha Sueda collected two hits each.

Fortunately, Amber Waracka had her game going as the sophomore struck out eight batters while giving up five hits and two walks.

In the second game, a 4-run, 6-hit fourth ended a string of three consecutive three-up, three-down innings.

The flow continued into the fifth inning as Hardy added an RBI double and 8Kanani Numata* hit here sixth homerun of the season to give the Vulcans a 7-0 lead.

The game ended on Hardy’s bases-loaded single in the sixth.

Tellez, Hardy and Numata paired hits for the Vulcans while Christina Pedroza allowed just two batters to reach base. She gave up two hits and struck out four.
