BATON ROUGE – Myia Hambrick, a 21-time All-American and Southeastern Conference champion, has been named LSU’s nominee for the 2018 NCAA Woman of the Year award.
Hambrick is one of 581 nominees for the prestigious award, which is the most in the history of the program. The award is focused on four pillars, which includes academics, athletics, service and leadership.
The Temple, Georgia native earned her bachelor’s degree in mass communications in May. Hambrick was a four-time SEC Academic Honor Roll member and four-time NACGC/W Scholastic All-American.
In the gym, Hambrick was one of the most underrated gymnasts in the country. She led the Tigers to the top of the sport with three appearances in the NCAA Super Six as well as back-to-back SEC regular season and meet championships.
Each conference office will select a nominee to move forward. The NCAA Woman of the Year selection committee will then identify the top 10 honorees in each of the three NCAA divisions. The Committee on Women’s Athletics will select the 2018 NCAA Woman of the Year from the nine finalists. The 2018 NCAA Woman of the Year will be announced Sunday, Oct. 28, at an awards dinner in Indianapolis.
