University of Colorado at Colorado Springs goalkeeper Amie Kern was named the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference defensive player of the week for the third time this season, the conference announced Tuesday.

Kern was also received the honor on Sept. 2 and Sept. 9. She is the only women's soccer player in the RMAC to be named a player of the week three times. The Metro State duo of Jamie Stephenson and Jen Thomas have each been named the RMAC offensive player of the week twice, while Briana Schulze has been named defensive player of the week twice.

Kern recorded her fourth shutout this season with a 3-0 win against Adams State on Sunday, making 10 saves. On Tuesday in a non-conference loss at Colorado Christian, she made 10 saves and allowed two goals as UCCS fell, 1-2. In 180 minutes of action she posted a 1.00 goals against average.

The senior from Saylorsberg, Penn., has a 1.31 goals against average for the season and is averaging 7.47 saves per match.
