Colleen Aubrey received the Louisville/Slugger NFCA Division II National Player of the Week for games played over March 23-29.
University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo senior Colleen Aubrey was selected as this week’s Louisville/Slugger National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) Division II National Player of the Week for games played over March 23-29.
Aubrey, a native of Sunnyvale, Calif., was a consistent threat at the plate for the Vulcans over an 11-game span last week. The senior outfielder batted .528 (19-26) with seven doubles, 10 RBI, 15 runs scored. She recorded a hit in nine-of-11 contests, including seven multiple-hit games. In addition, Aubrey drew eight walks and posted a .794 on base percentage in helping her team post a 9-2 mark last week.
“I am honored to receive this award this week and especially this year,” says Aubrey. “I have learned how to play for my teammates, and we continue to push each other and to me that is the best experience a player can have. I also want to thank my coaches, because without them this wouldn’t have been possible. We are going to continue our hard work and win some more games.”
Selected to the Tournament of Champions All-Tournament team, Aubrey hit .480 to help the Vulcans to a 6-1 mark and a Bronze bracket title. She was 4-for-5 with a double, RBI and three runs scored versus Holy Names and went 3-for-4 with a double, two RBI and two runs scored against Cal State East Bay.
“Colleen has been tremendous all year for us,” head coach PeeJay Brun says. “She is a true catalyst on our team. Her intensity on the field and in the dugout has helped catapult us to our 9-2 record this past week.”
