Humboldt State women’s crew member Amelia Wagoner has been named the university’s nominee for the 2020 NCAA Woman of the Year award.
Wagoner is one of a record 605 female college athletes nominated for this prestigious award.
Rooted in Title IX, the award was established in 1991 to recognize graduating female student athletes who have distinguished themselves in academics, athletics, service and leadership throughout their collegiate careers.
Wagoner, a Coalinga, Calif., native who graduated in May, was a four-year letter-winner for the Lumberjacks’ nationally ranked women’s rowing team.
During her time at HSU, Wagoner volunteered at many community service activities and leadership positions, including the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, Sexual Assault Prevention Committee, Beach Clean-up Days, and volunteering at local elementary schools.
The CCAA will select up to two nominees each from their pool of member school nominees.
The nominees represent all three NCAA divisions, including 259 nominees from Division I, 126 from Division II and 220 from Division III.
