Chelsea Camello’s strong start to her senior season at Chaminade University is getting her noticed in the PacWest Conference.

Camello, a 2012 graduate of Waiakea High School, earned the PacWest’s Softball Pitcher of the Week award after pitching 4.1 innings of shutout ball in a win over Saint Martin’s on Saturday.

In the 8-6 Chaminade victory, Camello allowed just four hits and two walks while picking up a strikeout. It was her second shutout performance of the season.

Hours after earning the award, however, Camello picked up her first loss of the season at Brigham Young University-Hawai’i. She allowed three runs on six hits in the Silverswords’ 3-1 loss on Monday.

On the season, Camello is 1-1 with a 1.75 earned run average in three appearances.
