Mountain Lions sign two recruits
The University of Colorado-Colorado Springs softball team signed two key additions for the 2003-2004 season.
Crystal Krebs, from Loveland, Colo., will rejoin former battery mate Amber Colton on the Mountain Lions team. Krebs is a transfer from Division I Texas-Arlington where she was named third-team All-Conference. While playing high school softball in Colorado, Krebs was an All-Colorado selection her junior and senior years while teaming with Colton at Loveland High School.
"Crystal gives us a huge bat in the middle of our line-up, not to mention the pure presence she brings," said coach Scott Peterson. "Crystal will give protection in our line-up to Brittni (Carlson) and Jen (Dykstra). I don't expect Brittni to be intentionally walked much anymore."
Peterson also announced the signing of junior college transfer and All-Region player Brenna Pool.
Pool from Arvada, Colo., was a member of the Class 5A state champion team while playing at Arvada West High School. Also a member of the prestigious All-Colorado team, Pool had a successful career at Otero Junior College where she posted a 1.68 era, the third lowest in Otero history.
Pool was also an academic All-American both years at Otero.
"Brenna not only gives us another pitcher to add to our staff she also brings a great glove," said Peterson. "We expect Brenna to deepen our infield and provide the power we witnessed at her workout."
