Nikki Boltja proved once again why she is one of the most potent attackers in the country. While being double and triple teamed most of the year, Nikki still managed to rack up 59 goals and 10 assists.
With those stats she earned IWLCA 3rd Team All-American, Synapse Sports 3rd Team All American, 1st Team all West/Midwest Region and 1st Team All Big East.
Nikki’s excellence went beyond the field as she once again succeeded in the classroom.
Because of her dedication in the classroom and on the field, Nikki earned the 2012-2013 BIG EAST Conference Scholar-Athlete Excellence Award. We can’t wait to see what Nikki’s senior year will bring!!
For the third consecutive season, four Pioneers have received All-American recognition by the USILA. The team was voted on prior to the NCAA Tournament.
“For the Denver Pioneers, 2013 has been an amazing year and it thankfully continues into the NCAA Championship weekend,” said head coach Bill Tierney. “Whenever a team experiences great success, some of its individual players will rightfully be honored. Cam Flint, Eric Law and Wesley Berg have consistently led us to new heights. Being named DU’s first, First Team All-American is a special honor that Cam deserves as he has been a force for us this year and throughout his career. Eric and Wesley have been inspirational in their play and leadership all season. Jeremy’s impact is obvious despite being hurt most of the season. We are thrilled to have him back on the field again. Most importantly, each of these young men is of such high character and put their team far ahead of individual accolades, as we continue to play in the last weekend of May.”
