Blair Brown A Finalist For National Awards

Even in the offseason after her fourth straight national championship, Blair Brown is still making headlines.

This week, Brown was named one of three finalists for the Honda-Broderick Cup, an award given to the National Collegiate Woman Athlete of the Year. Over 1,000 NCAA-member schools voted for the three finalists out of the Honda Sports Award winners, which was given to Brown back in January for being the best player in NCAA women’s volleyball.

The winner will be announced on June 27th at Columbia University. The other finalists are UConn’s Maya Moore (Basketball) and Villanova’s Sheila Reed (Track and Field).

More on Brown from the GoPSUsports.com article:

The Big Ten Player of the Year, the sixth straight for Penn State women’s volleyball, Brown finished her career with 1,295 kills to rank 14th all-time at Penn State. Brown was a finalist for the prestigious AAU Sullivan Award and was named the Female Athlete of the Month by the United State Sports Academy in January. A three-time All-Big Ten honoree, Brown earned Second Team laurels in 2008 and First Team accolades in 2009 and 2010. In her final season, Brown was a Unanimous Preseason All-Big Ten selection and earned conference player of the week honors three times.

UPDATE (11:08 AM): Blair Brown was also named an ESPY nominee for Best Female College Athlete. Vote here!
