INDIANAPOLIS--  Denison University graduate Jordan Holmes '17 has been selected as a conference nominee for the 2017 NCAA Woman of the Year.  There were 543 nominees for the award in 2017 and 145 were selected as conference nominees from NCAA institutions across Division I, II and III.

The NCAA Woman of the Year award honors graduating female college athletes who have exhausted their eligibility and distinguished themselves throughout their collegiate careers in academics, athletics, service and leadership. Next, the Woman of the Year selection committee, made up of representatives from the NCAA membership, will then choose the top 30 honorees – 10 from each division.

The average GPA for the 145 conference nominees was 3.88.  Fifty-three nominees came from NCAA Division III.

Holmes is a two-time Women's Basketball Coaches Association Division III All-American who left Denison as the NCAA Division III career leader in rebounds (1,711) and blocked shots (642).  Not only is Holmes Division III's all-time leader in rebounds, she ranks fourth in the history of women's college basketball in that category. 

In addition to her All-American awards from the WBCA, she was named to the CoSIDA Academic All-America team in 2016 and was a D3hoops.com All-American as a junior.  She is a two-time North Coast Athletic Conference Player of the Year and a four-time first-team all-conference selection.  In March, Holmes appeared in Sports Illustrated's Faces in the Crowd section after breaking Division III's record for career rebounds.

Holmes and the Big Red went 73-38 during her four-year career.  In 2015-16, Denison qualified for the NCAA Tournament after going 23-5 and winning the conference championship. This year, Denison advanced to the championship of the NCAC Tournament before falling to DePauw.

She double majored in psychology and women and gender studies. Holmes is a native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where she attended Mt. Lebanon High School.

The Top 30 honorees will be celebrated and the 2017 NCAA Woman of the Year will be named at the annual banquet in Indianapolis.

The NCAA Woman of the Year program has recognized graduating female student-athletes for excellence in academics, athletics, community service and leadership since its inception in 1991.
