KANSAS CITY, Mo. – UMKC’s Chyanne Onstad has been named the Western Athletic Conference Hitter of the Week for March 4-10, her first ever honor.

She tallied one run, a double, a home run, three RBIs and four walks. Onstad, who is on a five-game hitting streak with hits in seven of the last eight games, opened the tournament with a 2-for-4 showing vs. Maine.
