INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. –
Recent Charlotte women’s soccer goalkeeper Alex Kubrick
, class of 2014, has been selected as one of two Conference USA’s NCAA Woman of the Year honorees. She is one of 126 recipients across all three NCAA divisions plus independent schools and just one of 52 from Division I conferences.
The Woman of the Year selection committee will choose the Top 10 honorees from this pool to be recognized. Then, those 30 honorees will be announced in early September. Another cut is made at that point with the top-nine (three from each division) finalists at the end of September. The NCAA Committee on Women’s Athletics will vote from amongst the final nine finalists to determine the 2014 Woman of the Year.
Now in its 24th
year, the NCAA Woman of the Year award honors graduating female student-athletes for their achievements in academics, athletics, community service and leadership.
Kubrick, a Greensboro, North Carolina, native, earned her second-straight All-NSCAA South Region Honorable Mention Academic accolade in helping lead the 49ers to the Conference USA East Division title last fall. She was an All-Conference USA Academic First Team choice and was tabbed the league’s defensive player of the week Aug. 26, 2013, after opening the campaign with back-to-back shutouts.
She concluded her career ranked among the program’s all-time leaders in several goalkeeping statistics, including second place with a 1.07 goals-against average, while ranking third for matches played (51), matches started (49), minutes played (4379:59), wins (28), decisions (49) and shutouts (18). Her 209 saves position her fourth in the school’s career listings.
