University of Hawaii shortstop Kole Kaler was named the Big West Conference Field Player of the Week on Monday for the series he had at the plate against UC Riverside.
The Rainbow Warriors (15-11, 7-9) went 3-1 last weekend against the Highlanders, winning the series after Kaler hit for the cycle in the second game of Saturday’s doubleheader. He was the first ‘Bow to hit for the cycle in 25 years.
