University of Colorado at Colorado Springs catcher Crystal Krebs was named the Louisville Slugger/National Fastpitch Coaches Association Division II National Player of the Week for the week of March 7-13, the NFCA announced Wednesday.

Krebs went 7-for-8 (.875) in the Mountain Lions' three game sweep of Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference rival Adams State. The senior from Loveland, Colo., was also intentionally walked five times, making her on base percentage a stellar .923.

All seven of Krebs' base hits were for extra bases, giving her a 2.500 slugging percentage.

In game one, she went 3-for-4 with two home runs, a double and four RBIs. She went 1-for-1 with a double in the second game and 3-for-3 with two doubles and a home run in the third game.

On the season, Krebs is hitting at a .500 clip with six home runs and 17 RBIs. Her season slugging percentage sits at 1.267 and her on base percentage is .614 through 10 games.

Krebs is the second Mountain Lion to receive the award. Last season, Charlene Berg was named national player of the week for the week of March 1-7 after a UCCS sweep of â€" again â€" Adams State
