Outstanding Debut Nets Naomi Hernandez Big West Field Player of the Week Honors
The freshman hit .632 in her first weekend of collegiate softball.
Long Beach, Calif. - Freshman Naomi Hernandez proved she was ready to begin her college career, hitting .632 (12-for-19) at the Puerto Vallarta College Challenge, earning All-Tournament Team honors and helping the Beach start off the season with a 4-1 record.
Hernandez started all five games for the Beach and hit safely in all five, recording multiple hits in all five games. With a pair of doubles and five RBI, the freshman from Corona played a big part in Long Beach State’s four-game unbeaten start to the season.
Hernandez went 4-for-4 with a sacrifice and a walk against Nevada in her most prolific game of the weekend, and played a role in the team’s biggest win, going 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in a 4-2 extra innings win over No. 21 James Madison.
Long Beach State returns to action this Friday, taking part in the 2018 Marucci Desert Classic.
