Tufi tunes up C-USA’s top pitching staff w/ 3 HRs in 3 games

March 17, 2015

Pauline TufiFacing the top pitching staff in Conference USA is probably a little intimidating for most college softball players.

Then again, most aren’t named Pauline Tufi.

The Louisiana Tech University sophomore homered in three straight games against Florida Atlantic, which entered last weekend’s series with the top team ERA in Conference USA.

Tufi, of West High fame, hit .357 and finished with 3 HRs and 10 RBIs as the Lady Techsters swept a doubleheader from Lyon College and won one of three games against Florida Atlantic.

Rightfully so she was named Conference USA Hitter of the Week.

Tufi will likely give Florida Atlantic pitchers nightmares after hitting a solo homer in Game 1, a grand slam in Game 2 and a three-run shot in Game 3.

On the season the Alaskan is hitting .299 with 7 HRs and 21 RBIs in 23 games.
