Vulcans split softball doubleheader with the Urban Knights

MEDIA RELEASE

The University of Hawaii at Hilo struck quickly and fizzled just as fast as they split a Pacific West Conference doubleheader with the Academy of Art University on the UHH softball field.

The Vulcans won the first game 3-0 and fell 2-1 in the second game. The Vulcans are 19-6 overall and 15-5 in the PacWest while the Urban Knights are 12-12-1 overall and 3-5 in the PacWest.

Bryanna Hardy started the Vulcan assault with a first-inning single then scored when Aisha Sueda’s line drive got past the rightfielder.

In the next inning, Kanani Numata followed Nicole Alconcel’s walk with a run scoring double. Dana Lee followed with the RBI single. The three runs on three hits in two innings seemed promising but the Vulcans slowed down and collected just three more hits.

Sierra Green lead-off the second game with a triple then scored on Numata’s single. From then on, the Vulcans would be held to just two check-swing infield singles.

“Our pitchers and defense are going to keep us in the game,” said UHH head coach Gwen Kagaoan. “If we struggle at the plate, there is no way we’re going to win a game.

“I’m looking to see what adjustments we need to make to fire up this team. Our challenge is to get our girls to hit the ball on the ground rather than popping it up. It’s 99 percent an out if we pop it up but we give the defense a 50-50 shot at getting us out if we put the ball on the ground.”

Amber Waracka picked up her 12th win of the season with a 6-hit, 5-strikeout complete game.

Christina Pedroza took the loss in second game in relief. She gave up just one run on two hits while striking out three.
