Two-time Missouri Valley Conference Player of the Year Renae Sinkler returns to the Bluejay dugout for her first season as an assistant coach after serving as a volunteer assistant coach last season. The 2010 NFCA All-America first baseman works with hitters and infielders.

Her work paid off as a volunteer assist in 2012. A potent Bluejay offense scored at least 10 runs in a game 11 times and scored a school record of 294 runs last season. CU led the MVC with a .292 batting average, 56 homers, 275 RBI and a .464 slugging percentage. The Jays ended the year ranked in the NCAA top-30 in scoring (No. 20), home runs per game (No. 22) and slugging percentage (No. 27).

Sinkler won a title in each of her four seasons with the Bluejays, as CU won three straight regular-season titles from 2007 to 2009 and a Valley tournament championship in 2010. She also helped lead the Jays to three NCAA Regional appearances in her career.

The Lincoln, Neb., native put together the greatest offensive season in school history as a senior in 2010, setting single-season school records for runs (59), RBI (58), total bases (147), slugging percentage (.880), on-base percentage (.514) and hit an MVC-record 24 home runs.  She ranked fourth in the NCAA in home runs per game and sixth in slugging percentage, earning NFCA Third-Team All-America honors as a senior.

Sinkler crushed a school and MVC record 50 home runs in her career and owns school records with 146 career RBI and 391 career total bases.  A member of three Bluejay NCAA Tournament teams, she earned MVC First Team honors three times, NFCA All-Region honors twice and is one of four players in league history to repeat as MVC Player of the Year.

Along the way Sinkler earned USA Softball's National Player of the Week recognition on April 14, 2008 as a sophomore after hitting .700 and driving in nine runs during Creighton's 13-1 defeat of Nebraska in her hometown.

Sinkler graduated from Creighton in 2011 with a degree in graphic design.
