Softball split for the Vulcans Friday (March 19)

MEDIA RELEASE

The University of Hawaii at Hilo split a Pacific West Conference doubleheader with Dixie State College at the Karl Brooks Field in St. George, Utah.

The Vulcans won the second game 7-5 and dropped the first game 11-3. The Vulcans are 20-7 overall and 16-6 in the PacWest while the Red Storm is 10-7 overall and 5-3 in the PacWest.

In the second game, the Vulcans trailed 4-2 when they exploded for five runs on seven hits before the inning ended with the bases loaded.

Sierra Green tallied three hits, a pair of RBI and a homerun. Amanda Tellez and Kanani Numata added two hits each.

Christina Pedroza (5-3) commanded the mound in the second game with an 8-hit, 2-strikeout relief performance. Over six innings she gave up three runs and walked one.

“Christina pitched a very good game and we had timely hitting,” UHH head coach Gwen Kagaoan said. “It’s very hard to win on the road and we wanted to do something that we’ve never done here at Dixie and that’s to win one out here.”

The teams combined for 21 hits and nine errors in the second game with the Vulcans accounting for 11 hits and four errors.

“Our defense broke down today,” Kagaoan said, “but they never gave up.”

In the first game, Amber Waracka (12-2) saw her streak of 10 consecutive victories snapped early as the Red Storm tagged the sophomore hurler for seven-runs on six hits over 1.1 innings.

Green led the way with a 3-for-3 performance.
