SABRINA DEGNAN, AHS ALUM, IS A CANDIDATE FOR NCAA WOMAN OF THE YEAR

A record 585 female college athletes have been nominated by NCAA member schools for the 2019 NCAA Woman of the Year award.

Established in 1991, the NCAA Woman of the Year award recognizes graduating female college athletes who have exhausted their eligibility and distinguished themselves in academics, athletics, service, and leadership throughout their collegiate careers.

A selection committee will determine the top three honorees in each division and announce the nine finalists in September. From those nine finalists, the NCAA Committee on Women’s Athletics then will choose the 2019 NCAA Woman of the Year.

Way to go Sabrina, AUSD is proud of you!
