LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Florida State’s Sydney Sherrill and Oregon’s Miranda Elish were named Louisville/Slugger NFCA Division I National Player and Pitcher of the Week, respectively, for games played April 2-8.

Elish was nearly unhittable in her three outings last week, helping Oregon rise to No. 3 in the latest USA Today/NFCA Division I Top 25 Coaches Poll. The sophomore righty twirled a perfect game against Portland State and followed that with a three-hit gem of then-No. 9 Arizona. Against the Vikings, Elish fanned 16 of 21 batters to become the first Duck in program history to toss a seven-inning perfecto.

In her dominant game-two performance against the Wildcats, Elish held Arizona’s offense scoreless and faced just two batters over the minimum in the six-inning shutout. The Crown Point, Ind. native did not issue a free pass nor allow a runner past second base. In three appearances, Elish was 2-0 with 31 strikeouts and zero runs allowed over 14 innings of work. The Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week added a pinch-hit RBI triple versus Portland State.

Sherrill, a freshman from Moore, Okla., hit .579 (11-for-19) with six doubles, two home runs, nine RBI and three runs scored. She recorded multiple hits in all five contests and slugged 1.211. In a doubleheader sweep of then-No. 19 Louisiana, Sherrill doubled in each game and homered with three RBI in the nightcap.

Sherrill was 7-for-12 with four doubles a home run and six RBI in the three-game series against ACC-foe Pitt. The rookie utility player homered and drove in four in the series-clinching finale. She doubled twice in games one and two, which included a walk-off two-run, two bagger in the 2-1 series-opening victory.
