LOGAN, UTAH (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The University of Hawaii Rainbow Wahine Softball team has been ripping the cover off the ball ... and people are beginning to notice.

Hawaii is ranked 25th in the latest coaches poll.

It is the first time since 2008 the Wahine have been ranked.

Much of the credit for Hawaii's success goes to the offense.  Hawaii has hit 80 home runs and has hit more homers per game than any other team in the country.  The Wahine have 15 games left to surpass the school record of 84 home runs.  Outfielder Kelly Majam (20 home runs) needs just one more home run to tie the school record of 21 in a single season.

U.H. was supposed to play a game in Logan, Utah against Utah State Tuesday, but the game was postponed because of snow.

About six inches of snow fell in Logan covering the softball field.

The Aggies and Wahine hope to make-up the game by playing a double header Wednesday, but the field is saturated by melting snow.  So, according to the Utah State web site, a helicopter will be brought in to hover over the field in hopes of drying it out.
