TAHLEQUAH, Oklahoma -

Northeastern's Lisa Ripperger and Kayce Wooldridge swept the MIAA weekly honors.

Ripperger was named the MIAA Hitter of the Week, while Wooldridge was honored as the MIAA Pitcher of the Week.

Northeastern State posted a perfect 4-0 record this past weekend, and the RiverHawks were led by Ripperger's .769 average (10-for-13). The senior third baseman had at least two hits in all four games.

She recorded two doubles, one home run, four runs scored and four RBI. She also stole two bases, slugged 1.154 and recorded six assists at third base.

Wooldridge earned a 2-0 record in the circle and had an unblemished .000 earned run average. The freshman threw a four-hit complete-game shutout in NSUs 9-0 win over Bacone College Feb. 23.

She came on in relief duty and did not allow a run in the final 3.1 innings in NSU's 13-5 win over William Jewell. Overall, she threw 8.1 innings and struck out five, while only allowing six hits and no runs.

The RiverHawks are set to return to action March 1-3 in the Midwestern State University Tournament in Wichita Falls, Texas.
