Week's Achievements: Senior Dani Parrish led the way for the Huskie offense with five hits as NIU posted a 3-1 mark this past weekend in Mid-American Conference softball. After splitting a doubleheader with Eastern Michigan, winning Game Two, the Huskies swept a weekend series with Central Michigan with Parrish delivering the game-winning two-run homer in Sunday's, 4-2 victory. Parrish batted .500 on the week, well above her season average of .312, going 5-for-10 with two RBIs and a run scored. The Plainfield, Ind. native played in all four games, starting three, and led the team in slugging percentage (.800) and on-base percentage (.545). In NIU's win over the Chippewas Sunday, Parrish was a perfect 2-for-2 with two RBIs and a run scored.
