It didn't take Kelsey Pobar long to make an impression.

The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs freshman ended her first week of intercollegiate competition by being named the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Week, the conference announced Monday.

Pobar recorded at least 19 digs in three of the Mountain Lions'four matches at the CSU-Pueblo Classic. She began with 19 digs against St. Edward's and then added 24 digs each against Angelo State and Dixie State. She averaged 5.57 digs in 14 sets.

The Mountain Lions finished the week at 3-1 and will carry that record into the 2008 Marriott Volleyball Invitational, which will be played Thursday-Saturday at the Lions'Den on the UCCS campus.

The other RMAC honorees were both from Regis. Liz Franz was named offensive player of the week and Devin Eckhardt was the setter of the week.
