Bereit Nominated for NCAA Award

Bereit Nominated for NCAA Award

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - Liz Bereit '15 has been named as a 2015 NCAA Woman of the Year nominee in selections announced Friday afternoon by the NCAA.

Bereit, a four-year All-league performer for the Hornets women's lacrosse program, is one of 480 nominees for NCAA Woman of the Year.

Of the 480 nominees, 34 played lacrosse with 19 of the 180 Division III nominees playing the 'fastest game on two feet'.

The WOTY program, now in its 25th year, honors women based on four pillars: academics, athletics, service and leadership.

Bereit graduated Summa Cum Laude in May with a 3.92 GPA as a Sports Management major and was named as the ODAC Scholar-Athlete of the Year for women's lacrosse in addition to first team All-ODAC.

The All-ODAC accolade is third of her career. In 2012, she was named first team All-USA South and USA South Rookie of the Year in the Hornets final season in that league.

Two weeks ago, she was named to the Capital One Academic All-America third team. The Latrobe, Pennsylvania native is the 17th student-athlete, and third women's lacrosse player, to be named Academic All-America.

In April, Bereit was voted by the full-time members of the Shenandoah University Athletic Department as the outstanding student, outstanding student-athlete and Athletic Director's Award (academics, athletics and service/leadership) winner for the Class of 2015.

Off the field, Bereit was the President of the SU SAAC in 2014-15 after serving as its VP in 2013-14 and Treasurer in 2012-13.

She is also a member of the Omicron Delta Kappa national leadership honor society and involved in numerous community service projects, including Hungry Hearts and a Team Molly cancer awareness lacrosse game.
