MEDIA RELEASE

The University of Hawaii at Hilo opened a four-game Pacific West Conference series with a doubleheader sweep of the Academy of Art University on the UHH softball field.

Game scores were 6-1 and 4-1. The Vulcans improved to 18-5 overall and 14-4 in the PacWest while the Urban Knights are 11-11-1 overall and 2-4 in the PacWest.

The Vulcans struggled to find some offense in the series opener. Kanani Numata’s single was the only mark on the Urban Knight’s pitcher Sierrah Garcia’s stat sheet for five full innings. But in the sixth, the Vulcans erupted for six runs on five hits with Tessa Truong’s 3-run homerun capping the inning.

“This team has a lot of heart and a never say die type of attitude,” UHH head coach Gwen Kagaoan said. “We made a couple of changes in the sixth inning and they rode on that momentum.”

Amber Waracka tallied her 11th win of the season with the 7-hit, 5-strikeout complete game.

The Vulcans scored quickly and consistently in the second game. After Aisha Sueda’s first-inning RBI single, Nicole Alconcel added a solo home run in the fourth. Bryanna Hardy picked an RBI in the fifth while Asha Prithvirag tripled in a run in the sixth.

Hardy and Alconcel paired hits for the Vulcans in the second game.

Christina Pedroza improved her record to 4-2 with the 6-hit, 4-strikeout complete game.
