Seventh–ranked Valdosta State University put a stop to the Lady Sea Warrior’s 13-game winning streak by splitting a non-conference doubleheader at Kailua High School on March 11.
The Lady Sea Warriors beat the Lady Blazers, 8-3, but Valdosta State bounced back to shutout HPU, 0-3, in the nightcap.

However, while the Lady Blazers ended HPU’s 13-game winning streak, the Lady Sea Warriors remain unbeaten in the PacWest conference with a 6-0 record.

HPU trailed for most of the first game 3-1, but rallied in the sixth inning with seven runs, four of which were from VSU errors. Kara Wedemeyer went 2-3 for the Lady Sea Warriors with one run scored.

In the nightcap, both teams remained scoreless until the fifth inning, when VSU’s Robin Williams hit a homerun over center field. The Lady Blazers scored the final two runs in the sixth inning from an HPU error and a double by Amy Gaiss to right field.

HPU pitcher Sherise Musquiz suffered her first loss of the season, while VSU pitcher Brianna Collis pitched a complete game three-hit shutout.

The previous night, the Lady Sea Warriors beat the Seasiders of Brigham Young University-Hawai‘i 10-5, 8-2, in a televised doubleheader at Central O‘ahu Regional Park.

HPU trailed in the bottom of the sixth inning, 5-2, but the Lady Sea Warriors battled back to score eight runs in the final two innings to steal the win.

Jessica Adolph stood out for the Lady Sea Warriors batting 2-3 with three runs and five RBIs. Lehua Yap also performed well with two runs and two RBIs.

Once again BYUH took an early lead in the nightcap, 2-1, but HPU rallied back to score five runs in the second inning, and held the lead for the rest of the game.

Casey Sugihara stepped up for the Lady Sea Warriors batting 3-5 with two runs and game-high four RBIs. Ciera Senas hit 4-4 for HPU and scored two runs.

The Lady Sea Warriors leave for a four-game road trip against Grand Canyon University on March 25 and will then play in the Cal-State Stanislaus tournament from March 28-April 1.

HPU will face several powerhouses in the tournament, including Cal State University-Stanislaus, Cal State-Dominguez Hills, Cal State-Bakersfield, and San Francisco State University.

When they return home, the Lady Sea Warriors will face Chaminade University on April 7 at CORP at 5 p.m.
