For the second straight week, a University of Hawai’i at Hilo softball player has earned the PacWest Conference’s Newcomer of the Week award in softball.

Last week, junior shortstop Victoria Garcia earned the award for a solid four-game series against BYU-Hawai’i. This week, the honor goes to sophomore Bailey Gaspar.

Gaspar, a transfer from AIB College of Business in Des Moines, Iowa, batted .600 (6-for-10) in the four game weekend series against Notre Dame de Namur. She accumulated two doubles, two walks, and four runs batted as UH-Hilo earned a four-game sweep of the Argonauts.

On the season, Gaspar is batting .365 with one home run and 14 RBI.

Academy of Art’s Brenna Mitchell was named Player of the Week, and Dixie State’s Aryn Feickert earned the Pitcher of the Week honor.


UH-Hilo (16-5 overall, 8-0 PacWest) continues its 14-game homestand with a doubleheader on Saturday against Dominican University. First pitch of the doubleheader is scheduled for Noon at the UH-Hilo softball field.
