Aviles, who hit .425 as a junior, ranks second among area batters at .666.
She ranks first in hits with 16, and is tied for the lead in triples and has eight RBIs.
Aviles is also Western's backbone on defense, helping to guide underclassmen pitchers Angeleta Evans and Tiffany George.
Evans (6-0) ranks fourth in strikeouts with 58 in 34 innings.
Western, which went 15-2 and won the District 9 city championship last year, appears to be headed for another playoff appearance.

Weighty changes in wrestling
Health and safety concerns have prompted tighter restrictions for high school wrestling. The measures, approved by the National Federation Wrestling Rules Committee, will take effect during the 1995-96 school year.
Each wrestler will have to:
a) Establish a certified minimum weight before Jan. 15, prohibiting recertification at a lower weight during the season;
b) Weigh in or wrestle in at least one-half of his matches during the season at the weight that he will wrestle at during the state tournament;
c) Meet a specific weight-control program, which is at least as restrictive as A and B above and is approved by the state association.
