MANOA (KHNL) - The Rainbow Wahine softball team is coming down the home stretch, but they're not home free yet.

With six games left before the WAC tournament, there's a lot riding on their final two series. Hawaii enters this weekend's three game set a half game back of league leader Nevada.

On the other hand, they're only a half game up on Friday's opponent, New Mexico State, making their upcoming homestand, extremely important.

"It's important to the way we stand at WAC tournament, so I'm pretty excited about it and I think the rest of the girls are psyched too," said junior first baseman Amanda Taualii.

"It is a big series, it has a lot of meaningful impact as to how the WAC is played out in May, so we're just hoping we can have good fan support for the Rainbows and not just for the Aggies," said head coach Bob Coolen.

No doubt there will be some Aggie fans in the stand as New Mexico State brings back two Kamehameha grads in Hoku Nohara, and Shaleese Javillo.
