Chloe Mann is a candidate for 2014 NCAA Woman of the Year Award!

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- Chloe Mann isn’t done yet. The Gainesville native and Gator volleyball two-time All-American middle blocker, who graduated with her master’s in May and set the NCAA record for career hitting efficiency following the 2013 season, is among a distinguished group of female athletes up for the 2014 NCAA Woman of the Year Award, announced by the NCAA this week.   

 

The Woman of the Year award honors graduating female student-athletes who have distinguished themselves throughout their collegiate careers in academics, athletics, service and leadership. NCAA colleges and universities nominated 446 female student-athletes for the 2014 NCAA Woman of the Year award. View the complete list of all 446 student-athletes here. Of the nominees, 205 competed in Division I, 75 competed in Division II, and 166 competed in Division III athletics.

 

The 2012 SEC Player of the Year and top-10 finalist for the 2013 Senior CLASS Award, Mann paced the nation with a .506 clip en route to eclipsing the UF, SEC and NCAA career record for hitting efficiency (.476), all while completing a combined bachelor’s-master’s program in Business Administration and Information Sciences & Operations Management. Mann recently signed a contract with the Béziers Angels to continue her volleyball career professionally in France.

 

A mainstay on the Florida Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and SAAC Executive Board, Mann was the Tracy Caulkins Award Winner for graduation in May, denoting her as the top graduating female student-athlete with a well-rounded résumé academically, athletically, in the community and in leadership activities.

 

Each conference selects up to two women from the nominees to represent the conference. The Woman of the Year selection committee selects the top 30 honorees -- 10 from each division -- from the conference nominees. From 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 2014 NCAA Woman of the Year.

 

The top 30 honorees will be honored, and the 2014 NCAA Woman of the Year winner will be announced, at the annual ceremony in Indianapolis on Sunday, Oct. 19.
