Rainbow Wahine Iwata named WAC Hitter of the Week
University of Hawai`i softball player Jessica Iwata was named Western Athletic Conference Hitter of the Week, today.
Iwata, a freshman shortstop from Lihu`e, hit .600 with a 1.600 slugging percentage and .636 on-base percentage as the Rainbow Wahine (33-11,11-0 WAC) posted series sweeps of Utah State and Boise State on the road last week. She had 12 hits, six of which were home runs, two grand slams and 17 RBIs in five games last week. This is Iwata's first conference honor.
Louisiana Tech's Meghan Krieg was named WAC Pitcher of the Week. Hawai'i hosts Louisiana Tech (20-12, 6-3 WAC) on Friday and Saturday at Rainbow Wahine Softball Stadium.
