U H Hilo soccer player Jodie Lillie

University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo women’s soccer athlete Jodie Lillie is one of just two Pacific West Conference (PacWest) selections for the NCAA Woman of the Year. Lillie, a UH Hilo graduate with one season left of soccer eligibility, joins softball athlete Lauryn Henderson from the Academy of Art as the representatives from the PacWest.

Lillie is one of 151 conference-level nominees, including just 39 at the NCAA Division II level.

In the next step of the selection process for the Woman of the Year award, the selection committee will narrow the field down to 30 top candidates (10 from each of the three NCAA divisions), which will be announced in October. The final award winners will be announced later in the fall.
