Waiakea Alum Earns Second PacWest Pitching Award
Chaminade senior Chelsea Camello was awarded her second PacWest Conference Weekly Softball Award on Tuesday following an almost flawless performance in the pitcher’s circle last week.
Camello, a 2012 Waiakea High School graduate, was named PacWest Co-Pitcher of the Week after firing a one-hit shutout last Friday against BYU-Hawai’i in Chaminade’s 5-0 victory. She never allowed a runner to reach scoring position and only walked two in her fourth victory of the season.
On the season, Camello has a 4-13 record with a 6.10 earned run average in 23 appearances.
Earlier this year, Camello earned her first PacWest Pitcher of the Week honor after shutting out Saint Martin’s in 4 1/3 innings of relief on Feb. 13.
Next up for Camello and Chaminade is a home series with the University of Hawai’i at Hilo. The two rivals will play a doubleheader on Friday at Central O’ahu Regional Park. First pitch for game one is scheduled for 4:30 p.m.
