University of Hawaii senior Kaia Parnaby added a national award to her collection of conference honors today.

The Rainbow Wahine pitcher was named USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Week following a record-breaking performance over the weekend.

Parnaby broke UH's single-game strikeout record with 17 in a win over Syracuse in the championship game of the Chevron Spring Fling Tournament on Saturday. In the process, she became the nation's first 20-game winner this season.

She had tied the previous strikeout record of 15 twice this season before making it her own with an eight-inning relief appearance on Saturday. She went 6-1 over the week with a 0.41 earned-run average.

Along with leading the nation in wins, Parnaby also ranks ninth in earned-run average (0.98), 11th in walks allowed per seven innings (0.90) and 26th in strikeouts per seven innings (9.2).

Parnaby (20-3) earned Big West Softball Pitcher of the Week honors for the third time this season on Monday and was named College Sports Madness National Pitcher of the Week.
