Reinke, who has now earned the weekly conference honor twice in her career, struck out 18 batters and only gave up 14 hits in the three starts. Opposing batters hit a dismal .169 against Reinke over the past week.

CSU has won 11 of its last 13, to climb above .500 on the year (14-12) and overcome a 3-10 start. Reinke has not lost a game since Feb. 26, and she has picked up the win in her last seven starts since.

Reinke is the second Ram to earn a weekly honor from the conference this year. Junior shortstop Haley Hutton was named Player of the Week by the conference March 8.

The Rams open conference play with a doubleheader against San Jose State starting Thursday at 2 p.m., with the second game of the day set to begin at 4 p.m. The teams finish up the three-game series Friday with the opening pitch scheduled for 4 p.m. All three games against SJSU will be played at Ram Field in Fort Collins on the CSU campus.
