By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 5:26 p.m. HST, Apr 22, 2013

University of Hawaii shortstop Jessica Iwata was named Big West Softball Field Player of the Week today.

Iwata, a senior, hit .500 with an .857 slugging percentage and drove in four runs to help the Rainbow Wahine to a 4-0 week. The Big West award is Iwata's second in the last three weeks.

Iwata went 2-for-4 with a double in UH's 8-1 win at Cal State Bakersfield last Tuesday and went 5-for-6 with four RBIs in the final two games of a three-game sweep at Cal Poly over the weekend.

Iwata hit a game-tying home run in the fourth inning of the middle game of the Cal Poly series and drove in another run in a 3-1 win. She went 3-for-3 and accounted for both RBIs in UH's 2-1 win in the series finale on Saturday.

Iwata raised her batting average to .313 and is tied for second on the team with 31 RBIs.

UH (37-8, 14-1 BWC) leads the conference standings and opens a three-game series against second-place Long Beach State on Friday at Rainbow Wahine Softball Stadium.
