Davis nominated for NCAA Woman of the Year

Denison track and field standout Tiffany Davis was one of two nominees from the North Coast Athletic Conference for the NCAA's prestigious Woman of the Year award which is to be announced in October.  Davis joins DePauw's Paige Gooch (women's golf) as the NCAC's two representatives in the pool of 126 honorees that will be paired down to 30 honorees that will be announced in early September.  From there, nine finalists will be selected to attend the 2014 NCAA Woman of the Year ceremony on Oct. 19 in Indianapolis, Ind.

Davis was one of 49 Division III student-athletes recognized from across the country.  She recently capped off a brilliant career on the track, capturing her second All-American award by placing eighth in the 200 meter dash at the 2014 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championship.  She is a 13-time NCAC Champion and currently holds four conference records across indoor and outdoor track & field.  Davis was named the NCAC's Sprinter/Hurdler Athlete of the Year six times.  Her best national finish came at the 2014 NCAA Division III Indoor Championship where she placed third in the 200 meter dash.

A psychology major with a neuroscience concentration, Davis graduated with a 3.23 grade-point-average. Her academic honors include being a Denison Founders Scholarship recipient, a Marimac Scholarship recipient and a member of DU's Dean's List in 2014. She has also devoted a great deal of her time during the last four years to community service efforts, including volunteering at the Garden of Hope and the Salvation Army.
