Ogonna Nnamani Announced As Finalist For Broderick Cup

June 19, 2005

Stanford, Calif. - Stanford women's volleyball player Ogonna Nnamani was announced as one of five finalist for the Honda-Broderick Cup, given annually to the most outstanding collegiate women's athlete.

Nnamani, a four-time All-American, led the Cardinal to a NCAA National Championship in 2004 on her way to being tabbed AVCA Co-National Player of the Year. She holds the school record for single-season and career kills.

For the 19th consecutive year, Honda is proud to honor the most outstanding female collegiate athletes in the nation by sponsoring the Collegiate Woman Sports Awards. Winners are chosen in each of the 12 NCAA-sanctioned sports; three additional athletes are recognized as the Inspiration Award winners and Division II and III Athletes of the Year. All of these women are selected not only for their superior athletic skills, but also for their leadership abilities, academic excellence and eagerness to participate in community service.

Votes will be tabulated from over 900 NCAA-member schools, and the one athlete who is chosen as the outstanding Collegiate Woman Athlete of the Year will take home the coveted Honda-Broderick Cup. The winner will be announced in New York City in June.
