Arizona Wildcats centerfielder Alyssa Palomino-Cardoza was awarded Pac-12 Player of the Week honors after helping the Wildcats start the season 5-0.
The sixth-year senior went 8 for 12 at the plate with two home runs, four RBI, five walks and 11 runs scored as third-ranked Arizona won all five games of the Hillenbrand Invitational.
Palomino-Cardoza hit a two-run home run against New Mexico last Friday and homered the following day against Seattle U. She had three multi-hit games during the invitational and the Wildcats outscored their opponents 45-5.
Her two homers pushed her UA career total to 63 which ranks eighth all-time in program history.
Arizona plays in the Wildcat Invitational at home this weekend which will be another five-game stretch starting with BYU and Colorado State on Thursday.
