Senior pitcher Kayla Uphold of the No. 7 University of Redlands softball team garnered Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) Female Athlete of the Week honors.

Uphold, a native of Fontana, stepped up in a big way for the Bulldogs, helping Redlands to a 4-0 week with doubleheader sweeps of Cal Lutheran and No. 21 Chapman to remain in first place.

She threw 23 innings without giving up a run en route to three shut-out victories.  The final game of the week was a 3-0 triumph in 10 innings, during which she went the distance.

Uphold held opponents to a .185 average, struck out nine, and walked only two.  Uphold also helped herself from the plate, ranking second on the team for the pair of twin bills with a .417 average on a 5-for-12 effort.

She leads the SCIAC with an ERA of 1.08 while tying for the most number of wins at 20.
