LOUISVILLE, Ky. –Minnesota’s Amber Fiser has been selected as the Louisville/Slugger NFCA Division I National Pitcher of the Week, while Stanford’s Teaghan Cowles and North Carolina State’s Brigette Nordberg shared the Player of the Week honors for games played Feb. 25-March 3.

Fiser was 3-0 with a 0.33 ERA and 37 strikeouts in 21 innings of work. She surrendered just two runs, one earned and held her opposition to a .129 batting average. The junior from Van Horne, Iowa fanned 12 and walked two in a one-hit shutout of Drake. In her second start against the Bulldogs, Fiser struck out 13 and allowed a run in a three-hit complete-game effort. She capped off the week with a complete-game win over then-No. 19 James Madison. Fiser fanned the first eight Dukes of the game and finished with 12 for the contest.

Cowles, who hails from Ridgefield, Wash., was a tough out over the weekend. Reaching base safely in 16 of 18 plate appearances, she hit .818 with a .889 on-base percentage and slugged 1.455. Cowles recorded a pair of triples, a home run, two RBI and 11 runs scored. Against Montana, the junior outfielder went 3-for-3 with four runs scored, a double, homer and two RBI. Cowles scored four more times, drew three walks (two intentional) and was 2-for-2 versus Cal Poly.

Nordberg had a monstrous week at the dish, clubbing eight home runs, driving in 19 runs and slugging 2.323. She hit .750 with 12 hits, 13 runs scored, 37 total bases and an .826 on-base percentage. On Feb. 25, Nordberg left the yard three times against Murray State and launched two more on Feb. 27 at Charlotte, driving in six runs in each contest. The Exton, Pa. native was the first NCSU player to hit five homers over a two-game stretch and the second to record three in a game. Nordberg hit two more, registered four RBI and scored three times versus Campbell.
