This week’s University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo Pepsi Athletes of the Week are Angel Prewitt from the women’s softball team and Luca Matheiowetz from the men’s tennis team.

The UH Hilo softball team is on a 17-game road trip where they are playing the top teams in the conference including nationally ranked No. 1 Concordia.

After they face the conference’s current best, they head off to Stanislaus’ Tournament of Champions in Turlock, Calif. where they will play five games.

Prewitt, a senior from Wash., led her team’s offense the past week batting .438 with seven hits out of 16 at-bats and drove in one RBI. Prewitt’s lone RBI was responsible for the Vulcans only run in their 6-1 loss.

Prewitt was also impressive with her .545 on-base percentage, with four walks and a hit by pitch in addition to her seven hits.

The UH Hilo men’s tennis team just returned home from a significant California road trip where they played seven matches against PacWest opponents. The Vulcans came up 5-2 on the road, winning the last five matches in a row. Matheiowetz was a big part in all of his team’s wins going 7-0 in singles.

Matheiowetz was also the only player to win in both of UH Hilo’s 5-2 losses against Azusa Pacific University and Biola University.
