Jen Renola Named Finalist for NCAA Woman of the Year

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. -- Three-time All-American goalkeeper and 1997 Notre Dame graduate Jen Renola has been named NCAA Woman of the Year for Indiana. The NCAA Woman of the Year honors outstanding female student-athletes who have excelled in academics, athletics and community leadership. The state winners were selected by a committee comprised of representatives from member schools. The 51 state winners were chosen from more than 400 nominations.

Ten finalists will be announced in early September. The NCAA Committee on Women's Athletics will select the NCAA Woman of the Year from among those 10 finalist. The winner will be announced at an awards dinner Oct. 19, 1997, at the Westin Crown Center Hotel in Kansas City, Mo.

Renola has twice honored by the NCAA already, after being selected as one of the NCAA Today's Top VII and being awarded an NCAA postgraduate scholarship. Renola led Notre Dame to the NCAA women's soccer championship in 1995 where, as goalkeeper, she shut out all six of Notre Dame's post-season opponents on the way to the NCAA title. She was recognized as the National Soccer Coaches Association of America player of the year and was named the GTE/CoSIDA Fall/Winter At-Large Academic All-American of the Year. Also the 1996-97 BIG EAST scholar athlete of the year, Renola graduated from Notre Dame from the College of Arts and Letters with a degree in English with a 3.696 grade-point average.
