Pauline Tufi SoftballDouble-threat softball player Pauline Tufi of Anchorage has played a key role in helping Louisiana Tech University start 15-5 this season.

The sophomore slugger is hitting .298 in 20 games with 4 home runs and 12 RBIs.

She hit 4 homers in 52 games last season.

Tufi, of West High fame, leads Louisiana Tech with 13 walks, ranks second with 10 extra-base hits and third with 36 total bases.

Thing is, though, she might be an even better pitcher.

The hard-throwing right-hander is the team’s closer and has 43 strikeouts in 37.2 innings.

She has a 2.23 ERA and a 3-0 record with 4 saves.

Louisiana Tech has won 9 straight games, the longest winning streak since 1994, entering Conference-USA play this weekend.
