COLUMBIA — Columbia College finished as runner-up in the American Midwest Conference tournament Friday, and the Cougars' top player got a nod as the AMC Player of the Year.

Columbia College fought back from a first-game loss to Park University on Thursday and earned a berth to the AMC title game in the double-elimination tournament before losing to William Woods University 6-0 on Friday. After the tournament's conclusion, senior infielder Jamie Holmes was named the conference's Player of the Year.

Holmes had a team-high 61 hits for the Cougars along with 30 RBIs and a .416 batting average. She was a first-team All-Conference choice last season, as well.

Seniors Marli Hayes and Kristin Eikin also picked up first-team honors Friday. Juniors Brittiany Tjarks and Taylor Atwood earned honorable mention from the conference.
