Monji Honored with Weekly UAA Award
(ROCHESTER, N.Y.) – Freshman Kira Monji was named the University Athletic Association (UAA) Softball Hitter of the Week following an eight-game stretch this past week as the Tartans went 5-3. The honor is the first for a Tartan this season.
Monji, who played six games at second base, one in right field, and one as the designated player, collected a team-high 17 hits with a .567 batting average. She led the team with 11 RBIs, 12 runs scored, and five extra-base hits, including a streak of four games. Monji also walked three times and stole three bases.
Additionally, Monji is in the midst of an eight-game multi-hit streak which is a program record. The previous record was five games set by Megan Hu (2022 graduate) from the end of the 2019 season through the first two games of the 2020 season.
The Tartans are set to resume games on Saturday, March 18 with a home double header against Kenyon College starting at 1:00 p.m.
