Wire to wire, Weiss is the RMAC Player of the Year

Sam Weiss made the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference coaches look prescient.
The panel of coaches voted Weiss the RMAC Player of the Year, the league announced Tuesday, after naming her the Preseason Player of the Year in August.
Weiss finished second in the conference with 10 goals and also chipped in two assists for 22 points on the season.
Lauren Riley won the RMAC Defensive Player of the Year and joined her teammate on the 2013 All-RMAC First Team along with Ashley Kniffen.
No Skyhawks made the 2013 All-RMAC Second Team, but senior Emma Cannis and freshman Jordan Hix were voted to the 2013 All-RMAC Third Team.
Colorado Mines also picked up two major RMAC awards after Jayln Yates was named the RMAC Goalkeeper of the Year and Kevin Fickes the RMAC Coach of the Year.
Yates led the league with a .271 goals against average and .925 save percentage. She also was second in the conference to Skyhawks goalkeeper Caitlyn Espinosa in shutouts with 10.
