Wolfe, Rolfzen candidates for 2017 NCAA Woman of the Year
Annie Wolfe and Kadie Rolfzen are among the 543 names submitted for the 2017 NCAA Woman of the Year Award.
Wolfe's storied career with the UNK volleyball program was monumental on and off the court. She's already brought in a haul with her final year as a Loper athlete.
She was named the 2016 Division II Player of the Year and 2017 Honda/College Women's Sports Awards DII Athlete of the Year for volleyball. Her career was closed out as a first–team AVCA All–American and the UNK Female Senior Athlete of the Year. Wolfe is one of 117 Division II candidates to become a finalist.
Rolfzen is among a field of 229 Division I athletes.
She repeated as an AVCA first–team All–America and was one of four finalists for the 2017 Honda/CWSA Award in volleyball. Rolfzen was a first–team honoree for the Senior CLASS award as well.
Kadie and her twin sister, Amber, are playing professionally in Germany this year, where they finished with a bronze in their league.
Each conference selects up to two nominees and the top 10 choices move on to the finals where they get recognized at an award ceremony October 22 in Indianapolis. The three best choices from DII move on to the finals with the other two NCAA divisions.
