University of Hawaii sophomore Leisha Li’ili’i was named the Big West Softball Field Player of the Week today.
The Castle graduate hit .750 (6-for-8) with two home runs and nine runs batted in during last week’s Pepsi Malihini Kipa Aloha Tournament.
Li’ili’i hit a three-run homer in UH’s 7-0 win over Portland State last Friday. She then drove in six runs in a doubleheader sweep of Portland State and East Carolina on Saturday.
Li’ili’i moved into the team lead with 16 RBIs and raised her batting average to .327.
UH (16-5) faces Syracuse tonight and East Carolina on Tuesday at Rainbow Wahine Softball Stadium.
