Callee Heen’s bat was smoldering as she left the field in San Luis Obispo, Calif., on Saturday.
Heen batted .571 and knocked in six runs in Hawaii’s three-game Big West sweep of Cal Poly over the weekend. That stat line was good for conference player of the week honors on Monday.
It was the first award this season for the UH junior catcher/first baseman and the second of her career. The Hollister, Calif., native hit a home run in the opener of the series (a 6-1 win), her BWC-best 11th of the year. She kept it up in Saturday’s doubleheader sweep of the Mustangs, with a combined five RBIs in the 4-0 and 12-0 wins.
For the season, Heen is batting a team-high .404 with 35 RBIs.
Third baseman Nicole Lopez was the Big West player of the week on Feb. 25 for UH (24-10 overall), which is tied with Cal State Fullerton atop the conference standings at 5-1.
UH hosts UC Santa Barbara (7-30, 1-5) in the first contest of a three-game series at 6 p.m. Friday.
