Another NCCAA nod for Lady Tornado's Ringstaff

GREENVILLE, S.C. - King College's Cassie Ringstaff picked up the NCCAA Softball Student-Athlete of the Week award for a second straight week, the national office announced.

Ringstaff (Richlands, Va.) helped King to a doubleheader sweep of cross-town rival Virginia Intermont College in the only games played last week. In the two games she went 4-9 with two triples and two RBIs. In addition she scored three times as she pushed a team-best hitting streak to seven games.

King welcomes Virginia Intermont for a 2 p.m. doubleheader Friday. The Lady Tornado owns a 5-11 record which includes wins of 7-3 and 7-4 over the Lady Cobras on March 2 in which Ringstaff played her way to the NCCAA award.
