DeKALB – Northern Illinois University softball players Shelby Miller and Jessica Sturm were named Mid-American Conference West Division Player and Pitcher of Week respectively the league announced Monday.

Sturm allowed four runs on nine hits and five base on balls for a 1.65 ERA. She began the week with two-hit, 10-2 five-inning victory over North Dakota in the second game of a doubleheader.
