Krebs named academic All-District

By Doug Fitzgerald published May 12, 2005

To the growing collection of awards and honors in Crystal Krebs' overstuffed trophy case, another was added Thursday. This one, though, was just a little different.

It was different because it had more to do with homework than home runs.

The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs senior was named to the 2005 ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District VII College Division Softball Team. Her selection to the All-District team makes her eligible for the Academic All-American ballot.

The academic All-District and All-American teams are nominated and selected by members of the College Sports Information Directors Association (CoSIDA). Krebs was one of more than 100 nominees for the All-District VII College Division team. The College Division includes all NCAA Division II and Division III institutions as well as those competing in the NAIA>

Krebs, a Geography/Environmental Studies major, has a 3.544 cumulative GPA. On the field, she set a new NCAA Division II record for home runs per game with 0.52. She also won the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Triple Crown with a .470 batting average, 25 home runs and 70 RBIs.
