Appalachian State University softball's Allie Cashion has been nominated for the NCAA Woman of the Year award, the NCAA announced this week. Cashion, who earned Southern Conference Player of the Year honors while leading the Mountaineers to the 2013 SoCon regular-season title, is one of 214 female student-athletes to be

nominated from the NCAA Division I ranks.
The Woman of the Year award honors graduating female student-athletes who have distinguished themselves throughout their collegiate careers in the areas of academic achievement, athletics excellence, service and leadership. During the 2013 campaign, Cashion finished seventh in the SoCon in batting average (.342), led the league in doubles (18), was fourth in RBI (43) and belted a team-best eight home runs. Her outstanding senior season helped the Mountaineers claim their first-ever conference title while finishing with a perfect 18-0 home record, the best in all of NCAA Division I softball.
In her four seasons in Boone, Cashion finished as the single-season school record-holder in doubles (18 - 2013) and RBI (51 - 2012) while setting career records for doubles (51), RBI (183) and total bases (370). In addition to her on-field accomplishments, Cashion earned her second-straight CoSIDA Academic all-district nod in 2013. She was a third-team academic all-American in 2012 and was named as one of 30 finalists for the Lowe's Senior CLASS award earlier this year.
A total of 455 female student-athletes across all NCAA Divisions were nominated for the Woman of the Year award. Each conference will one or two women from the list of institutional nominees to represent the conference. Those names are then sent to the Woman of the Year selection committee, which chooses the top 10 honorees in each division.
From among those 30 candidates, the selection committee determines the top three in each division and announces the top nine finalists in September. The NCAA Committee on Women’s Athletics will then vote from among the finalists to determine the 2013 NCAA Woman of the Year.
The top 30 honorees will be honored, and the 2013 NCAA Woman of the Year winner will be announced at the annual ceremony in Indianapolis on Oct. 20.
