By Alex Sommers published November 5, 2008

University of Colorado at Colorado Springs Goalkeeper Amie Kern named first team all-Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference, the conference announced Wednesday.

Mid-fielder/Defender Ashley Collins named third team all-RMAC.

Kern was the RMAC defensive player of the week three times during this past season. She started all nineteen of the Mountain Lionsâ€TM games, racked up 150 saves, and had an impressive save percentage of .833.

Collins controlled the midfield for the first half of the season for UCCS. Then, due to injuries to many of the defenders, she moved to the stopper position where she was the first line of defense against the opposing teamâ€TMs attack. She had two goals and one assist this season.
