Powell, Bishop Win MIAA Softball Student-Athlete of the Week Awards


KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Malinee Powell (Fort Hays State) and Jackie Bishop (Missouri Western) have been named MIAA Softball Student-Athletes of the Week for the week of April 5-11, as selected by a conference SID panel. 

Malinee Powell, So., Fort Hays State

Powell had a tremendous start to the week by hitting three home runs in the two doubleheader wins at Washburn. In game one of the doubleheader, she hit two home runs. The first, a two-run shot, helped extend Fort Hays State's lead to 7-2 in the second inning, then hit a solo home run in the seventh to push the FHSU lead back to five at 8-3. She hit a two-run homer in the third inning of the second game to break a 1-1 tie, helping the Tigers to a 4-2 win and sweep of the Lady Blues. In the second game of the doubleheader at Missouri Southern, she hit her fourth home run of the week, a two-run shot, to extend Fort Hays State's lead to 3-0. Her third hit of that game, a double in the fifth, pushed the FHSU lead to 9-1 as the Tigers went on to win 9-5. In the 16-10 win over Pittsburg State, she drove home a run on a sacrifice fly to tie the game 9-9. For the week, she had five extra-base hits, which produced nine of her 10 RBI for the week. 

Others nominated: Angela Mahan, ESU; Alysha Poteat, MSSU; Meagan Roemmich, MWSU.


Jackie Bishop, Fr., Missouri Western

Bishop continues to spin the ball well in the circle as she picked up two more shutouts last week which included a no hitter in the Griffons home opener and first game at the new Griffon Spring Sports Complex against Southwest Baptist last Monday. Bishop threw all seven innings striking out 11 while walking just one. She followed that performance with a complete game two hitter while striking out two in a 7-0 victory over Lincoln. Bishop improves her overall record to 16-2 with a 0.88 ERA. She has pitched 16 complete games with four solo shutouts and one combined. Her no hitter was the first thrown in the 10 years coach Jen Bagley had been at Western.

Others nominated: Karley Schmelzer, ESU; Nicole Reed, MSSU; Beth Haley, UNO; Jenna Creger, NWMSU; Josie Rose, SBU.
