CLEVELAND, Ohio -- With a 2004 Ramada Marshall Softball Spring Classic title under their belt, Herd softball continues to rack up the honors as sophomore Amanda Williams (Powder Springs, Ga.) and junior Randi Nielson (Tucson, Ariz.) were named Mid-American Conference Player and Pitcher of the Week, respectively, according to the league office on Monday.

In the three-day tournament at Dot Hicks Field, A. Williams went 8-for-18 with five runs scored, three stolen bases, eight RBIs, and five doubles, including the clutch two-run double that kept MU on track for the championship against Pittsburgh.

Nielson did her part as well, picking up two wins on the mound, including the decisive win in the tourney cap against Pittsburgh. Coming in relief in the sixth inning, Nielson gave up no hits to the Panthers, after surrendering only two hits in an earlier loss to the Big East foe. She also struck out seven in five innings of work in a win over Eastern Michigan.
