Softball Wahine get academic honors

University of Hawaii softball players Alexandra Aguirre, Jori Jasper and Kelly Majam were named National Fastpitch Coaches Association scholar-athletes for the 2010 season.

To qualify, student-athletes must maintain a cumulative 3.5 grade-point average or higher for the fall and spring semesters combined. Just eight players from Hawaii have earned the award more than once, including Aguirre and Majam, who both earned the honor last season.

Aguirre, a junior outfielder from Temple City, Calif., is an English major. She started in 62 of 64 games and finished the season batting .311 with 13 home runs.

Jasper, a redshirt freshman first baseman from Lihue, is majoring in pre-business and plans to apply to the Schidler School of Business in the Spring of 2011.

Majam, a sophomore center fielder from Pine Valley, Calif., is a secondary education major. She set numerous records, earning second-team NFCA All-American honors. She led the NCAA with 30 home runs last season and broke the UH single-season records for runs scored (88) and walks (44). She also led UH in batting average (.400), runs scored (81), home runs (30), RBIs (60, tied with Melissa Gonzalez), on-base percentage (.519), slugging percentage (.919), and walks (44).
