HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – Kelly Majam has no problem going on the record, that she's not focused at all about "the" record.
"I'm trying to perfect my swing again," says Majam. "I don't think I'm thinking about homeruns, I'm thinking about making good contact."
The redshirt junior is one swing away from becoming the all-time leader in homeruns at UH. Majam and former Rainbow Wahine great Kate Robinson are dead locked at 44 career dingers. Still, she has other worries. A .208 batting average is the lowest during any of her three seasons. A problem she hopes to remedy beginning this week when the Bows host San Jose State to open up Hawaii's final season in the WAC.
"I think what I've learned is to not celebrate when I hit it as far as I can but to celebrate getting the good part of the bat on the ball," says Majam.
"Even if I get out, and it's a good swing, that's a victory in itself. And that's what i've been learning this season is taking those small steps."
"Kelly is more focused on, why isn't she hitting right now?" Rainbows head coach Bob Coolen said. "That's all she's focused on. The other day when she hit a homerun, I think it was a relief for her that she still had that swing."
No. 17 Hawaii (240-2) will open their final run in the WAC when they host San Jose State (16-16) at the Rainbow Wahine Softball Stadium on Friday at 6pm (HST).
