Three Mountain Lions named all-RMAC
University of Colorado at Colorado Springs middle blockers Brooke Akers and Heidi Fehringer were named first-team all-Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference, the RMAC announced Wednesday.
Teammate Andrea Weedman was named honorable mention.
Akers leads the Mountain Lions and was third in the conference with 3.95 kills per game heading into the RMAC tournament, which will be held Friday through Sunday in Kearney, Neb. The senior from Desert Hot Springs, Calif., also had a team-best .341 hitting percentage, good for third in the RMAC, and led UCCS with 92 blocks.
After playing sparingly as a freshman, Fehringer burst onto the RMAC scene as a sophomore in 2007. The American Falls, Idaho, native averaged 2.61 kills and 0.77 blocks per game while hitting .225.
Weedman led the Mountain Lions and was 10th in the RMAC with 3.78 digs per game. A four-year starter from Scottsdale, Ariz., Weedman is the UCCS career record holder in digs (1,722) and aces (138) and is fifth all-time in kills (997).
