INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- Florida volleyball 2013-14 senior middle blocker Chloe Mann still stands on the list of distinguished nominees for the 2014 NCAA Woman of the Year Award, which was narrowed Thursday from 446 female student-athletes to just over 120 as conferences across the country selected up to two athletes to represent their respective leagues and contend for the coveted award.

 

Mann, a Gainesville native and Gator volleyball two-time All-American middle blocker, who graduated with her master’s in May set the UF, SEC and NCAA record for career hitting efficiency following the 2013 season. Mann and Kentucky track’s Chelsea Oswald are the Southeastern Conference’s designated student-athletes up for the award.

 

In its 24th year, the NCAA Woman of the Year award honors graduating female student-athletes who have distinguished themselves throughout their collegiate careers in academics, athletics, service and leadership. The conference honorees represent student-athletes from 15 different sports. By division, 52 honorees competed in Division I conferences, 25 competed in Division II, and 49 competed in Division III.

 

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.

 

Next, the Woman of the Year selection committee will select the top 10 honorees in each division from this pool to be recognized. These top 30 honorees will be announced in early September. The selection committee will then choose and announce the top nine finalists (three from each division) at the end of September. The NCAA Committee on Women’s Athletics will vote from amongst those nine finalists to determine the 2014 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.
