Elizabeth Phillips, a 2012 graduate of Washington University in St. Louis, was selected as one of the top 30 honorees for the 2012 NCAA Woman of the Year award.
The top 30 women, selected from a group of nearly 430 nominees, are composed of 10 honorees from each NCAA division. In September, three finalists will be chosen from each division to form nine finalists for the award. The 2012 Woman of the Year will be announced and the top 30 women will be honored during a ceremony on Oct. 14 in Indianapolis.
Phillips, who graduated in May with a degree in biomedical engineering and a 4.0 GPA, completed her career as one of the most decorated student-athletes in school history. She became the first-ever three-time NCAA Elite 88/89 Award winner in any NCAA division.
