By Doug Fitzgerald published April 13, 2005

University of Colorado at Colorado Springs shortstop Jennifer Dykstra was named the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Player of the Week for the week of April 4-10, the conference announced Wednesday.

Dykstra was nearly automatic at the plate with six hits and three walks (.818 on-base percentage) in 11 plate appearances during the Mountain Lions four-game RMAC home sweep of Colorado Mines on April 8th and 9th. In total, she hit .750 (6-for-8) with three home runs, seven runs batted in, five runs scored and was 4-for-4 in stolen base attempts. During UCCSâ€TM streak of 12 wins in the past 13 games, the senior from Littleton, Colo., has committed only one error and she has been error-free the past 12 games (38 chances).

It was the fourth time this season that a Mountain Lions player had won the award. Crystal Krebs won it twice and Brittni Carlson once.
