Monday June 17, 2013Brittany Dashiell Nominated for 2013 NCAA Woman of the Year Award
University of Florida Lacrosse midfielder Brittany Dashiell has been nominated for the 2013 NCAA Woman of the Year Award, as announced by the NCAA on Monday.
Dashiell, a native of Bel Air, Md., was named American
Lacrosse Conference Midfielder of the Year in May. She finished her career at
Florida as the all-time leader in ground balls (123) and draw controls (214).
The Woman of the Year award honors graduating female student-athletes who have distinguished themselves throughout their collegiate careers in the areas of academic achievement, athletics excellence, service and leadership.
Every year, the NCAA encourages each member college and university to honor its top one or two graduating female student-athletes by submitting their names for consideration for the Woman of the Year award.
Each conference then selects one or two women from the nominees to represent the conference. Those names are then sent to the Woman of the Year selection committee, which chooses the top 10 honorees in each division.
From among those 30 candidates, the selection committee determines the top three in each division and announces the top nine finalists in September. The NCAA Committee on Women’s Athletics will then vote from among the finalists to determine the 2013 NCAA Woman of the Year.
The top 30 honorees will be honored, and the 2013 NCAA Woman of the Year winner will be announced, at the annual ceremony in Indianapolis on Oct. 20.
