Dung named Mountain West Pitcher of the Week

Sophomore Bulldogs pitcher Kamalani Dung was named the Mountain West Pitcher of the Week, the first such honor of her career.

Dung started all three games in the Bulldogs’ sweep of UNLV and pitched her Mountain West-best seventh shutout of the season in the second game of the series. She went 3-0 with a 2.13 ERA and pitched all 23 innings in the series.

“Kama showed she is one of the top pitchers in the league,” Fresno State head coach Linda Garza said. “She stepped up when her team needed her and stuck to the process, pitch-by-pitch, for 23 innings. Kama has grown throughout the season and her mental game is getting better every week.”

Dung leads the Mountain West with 20 wins and is second with 165 strikeouts. She has appeared in 35 games and is holding batters to a .216 batting average.
