UH-Hilo’s Gaspar Earns All-NFCA First Team Regional Honor

Gaspar, from Vancouver, Wash., batted .415 with six home runs, nine doubles, and 36 runs batted in. During PacWest Conference play, she hit .506.
“Bailey has been such a great addition to the Vulcan family,” UH-Hilo Head Coach Peejay Brun said in a school release. “She kept studying her videos and putting in the extra work to keep getting better until the very end.
Earlier this week, Gaspar was selected to the All-PacWest Second Team. She was also recognized as UH-Hilo’s Female Athlete of the Year.
