Angel named west division player of the week

By Doug Fitzgerald published October 10, 2005

University of Colorado at Colorado Springs junior Kelley Angel was named the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference West Division Player of the Week, the conference announced Monday.

Angel averaged 4.11 kills per game while hitting .355 as UCCS swept three matches. The Mountain Lions went 9-0 in the three matches that included victories over Metropolitan State on Thursday and Regis on Saturday, their first wins over those schools in more than a decade. Sandwiched between those two was a win over Colorado Christian.

Angel is the first Mountain Lion to receive player of the week honors this season. Jill Wrenn the only UCCS player so honored in 2004. Before that, no UCCS player had been named player of the week since Audrey Nelson on Oct. 15, 2001.

UCCS currently leads the RMAC West Division with a 9-2 conference record.
