An impressive display of power at the plate led University of Hawai`i at Hilo junior Emily Greene to receive the Hawaii Tourism Authority / PacWest Conference Softball Player of the Week award, announced Monday by the conference.

Greene batted 7-for-12 (.583) during the week of March 10-16. The Vulcans went 3-1 during that span, splitting a pair of games against Academy of Art before sweeping Dominican University on Saturday.

In Thursday’s 10-8 loss to Academy of Art in the first game of a doubleheader, Greene batted 4-for-4 with an RBI single and a grand slam home run. She also doubled in a run, driving in six total runs in the contest. In the second game, she hit 1-for-3 with a three run homer in her team’s 8-4 victory.

Two days later, the Vulcans won 8-0 and 9-1 over Dominican at the UH-Hilo Softball Field. Greene drove in a pair of runs on a first inning double and hit 2-for-3 in the game. She walked twice and went 0-for-1 in the finale.

Greene, last year’s All-PacWest First Team selection at third base, currently sits fifth in the PacWest with a .429 batting average. Her eight doubles and 27 runs batted in also sit fifth among the conference’s rankings. She also has four home runs on the year.

The 10 game trip includes non-conference doubleheaders with UC San Diego and Cal State San Bernardino before wrapping up with a PacWest doubleheader at Azusa Pacific.
