UH's Majam, Parnaby earn WAC softball honors

University of Hawaii

Hawaii's Kelly Majam and Kaia Parnaby have been named the Western Athletic Conference Hitter and Pitcher of the Week, respectively, for games played Feb. 15-21.

Majam, a freshman outfielder from Pine Valley, Calif., led the Rainbow Wahine to a 3-1 record at the Louisville-Slugger Desert Classic last week. She hit a WAC-best .750 (12-of-16) with seven RBI, a 1.313 slugging percentage and a .810 on-base percentage. She led the team in runs (10), hits (12), doubles (3) and walks (5). Majam had at least one hit in all five games and multiple hits in four games. She reached base safely 17 of 21 plate appearances, hit 1.000 (5-for-5) with runners on and was 9-for-9 in advancing runners.

Parnaby, a freshman from Bilgola Plateau, NSW, Australia, posted a 3-0 record at the Desert Classic. In 17.0 innings, the southpaw gave up five earned runs with one shutout. She posted a 2.06 ERA while striking out 21 and holding opponents to a .261 batting average.
