The nominees are being recognized for college careers highlighted by outstanding achievements in academics, athletics, community service and leadership
Trojan Zoë Scandalis is among nine former college athletes selected by the NCAA as finalists for the 2015 NCAA Woman of the Year Award.
A two-time Intercollegiate Tennis Association All-American in singles and doubles tennis, Scandalis led her team to three Pac-12 titles and four NCAA tournament appearances. She also competed as an individual during the NCAA tournament.
The two-year team captain served on the Provost’s Oversight Committee of Athletic Academic Affairs as a student-athlete representative and on the Trojan Athletic Senate. In 2012, she was the Southern California representative to the NCAA leadership forum. Scandalis also embraced a leadership role in the community, where she served as a mentor at a local middle school and continues to volunteer with Girl Up: United Nations Campaign for Adolescent Girls, where she focuses on the use of social media to advocate within India.
The nine finalists are among 30 Woman of the Year honorees who will be recognized during the event. The winner will be announced during an Oct. 18 ceremony in Indianapolis.
