School graduate from Waimanalo, pounded out a team high .481
batting average in eight games en route to being named Pacific
West Conference Player of the Week on Feb, 23. Choy Foo went
8-for-15 in four gamed played the previous week for a .533 average,
a .867 slugging percentage, and a .562 on-base average. (Slugging
percentage, a good measure of power hitting, is calculated by

team leadership role. Team sources describe her as low-key,
of player who leads by example. (Given her slugging percentage
it’s surprising no one has thought to claim that “Choy

13 runs scored thus far, she has certainly set HPU on the path

Sophomore catcher Jennifer Baron added muscle to the offensive
barrage, pounding out a .407 average thus far, with a .778 slugging
average and a team-high two home runs and a .500 on base average.
The Lady Sea Warriors currently lead the
conference with a combined .350 batting average. Pitchers Malia
and Jessica Parra
solidified the HPU defense, holding their opponents to a .166
batting average over eight games.

a 3-0 record with thus far only a .084 earned run average.
right-handed pitcher, from Phoenix, Ariz., threw for a 3-1
record and a 2.43
ERA. Coupled with a defense that thus far leads the league
in fielding percentage, HPU can feel optimistic about
to conference play.
