NOTRE DAME — Recently graduated Notre Dame women’s soccer student-athlete Elizabeth Tucker has been nominated by the Atlantic Coast Conference for the 2014 NCAA Woman of the Year award, the conference announced Wednesday, July 9.

Tucker is one of two nominees submitted by the ACC for this year’s award, along with another league women’s soccer player, Jazmine Reeves of Virginia Tech.

The NCAA Woman of the Year award honors graduating female student-athletes who have distinguished themselves throughout their collegiate careers in the areas of academic achievement, athletic excellence, service and leadership.

Choosing from a pool of candidates submitted by its member schools, each conference in the three NCAA divisions nominates up to two candidates for the award, and from that group of approximately 160 nominees, the top 30 honorees will be chosen (10 per division).

The NCAA Woman of the Year Selection Committee subsequently determines the three finalists from each NCAA division that will comprise the list of nine award finalists, with that announcement expected in September. The NCAA Committee on Women’s Athletics then meets to vote from among the finalists for the 2014 NCAA Woman of the Year, who will be honored along with the top 30 candidates, during a ceremony Oct. 19 in Indianapolis.
