Krebs Garners Another Honor

By Doug Fitzgerald published January 31, 2006

Former University of Colorado at Colorado Springs softball player Crystal Krebs was selected to receive a Sportswomen of Colorado award, the University learned Tuesday.

Krebs will be named 2005 college softball player of the year at the 32nd Annual Sportswomen of Colorado Awards Banquet on March 12, 2006 at the Marriott Tech Center in Denver.

Krebs broke the NCAA Division II home run record by hitting 0.52 long balls per game. The previous record was 0.47, set by Megan Trimble of Philadelphia Sciences in 2004. Krebs also won her second Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Triple Crown by hitting .470 with 25 home runs and 70 RBIs.

The Loveland High School graduate was named first-team All-RMAC, All Region and All-American for the second consecutive season. In 2005, she showed that her excellence extended beyond the playing field by being named first-team academic All-American as well.

Among her exploits were the two longest home runs in UCCS softball history and the longest recorded shot at Regis Field. She added to her legend by belting a homer to center field against Colorado School of Mines while the Orediggers were trying to intentionally walk her.
