Gabi Razma Nominated for NCAA Woman of the Year Award

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. -- Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology two-sport standout Gabi Razma has been nominated for the NCAA Division III Woman of the Year award, the NCAA announced on Thursday afternoon.

Razma is one of a record 581 nominees for the NCAA Woman of the Year award, including 199 in Division III.  The four pillars of the NCAA Woman of the Year Award include academics, athletics, service and leadership.  Each NCAA Division III conference will have one official nominee for the award, which will be announced in August.

Earlier this summer, Razma became the first multi-sport Google Cloud Academic All-American award winner in the history of women's athletics at Rose-Hulman.  She earned first-team Google Cloud Academic All-American honors in volleyball (2017) and was a second-team selection in track and field (2018).

Razma was previously a first-team Academic All-American in volleyball in 2017.  The effort marks the first time in Rose-Hulman history that a female student-athlete has earned Academic All-American honors in multiple sports. 

Razma completed one of the most decorated careers in Rose-Hulman women's sports history this season.  The standout was a two-time Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Most Valuable Player in two sports, earning Volleyball Defensive Player of the Year honors in 2014 and 2017, Indoor Field Athlete of the Year accolades in 2018, and Outdoor Field Athlete of the Year honors in 2018.

Her track and field career included 17 HCAC championships, including seven individual titles in the triple jump.  She also claimed four individual championships in the 4-x-400 meter relay, three titles in the 4-x-200 meter relay, two 400-meter individual titles, and the 2018 outdoor javelin championship.  Most importantly, her efforts helped Rose-Hulman sweep the 2018 HCAC Indoor and Outdoor team championships.

Razma's career also includes six school records (javelin, indoor and outdoor triple jump; 4-x-200 indoors; 4-x-400 indoors; 4-x-400 outdoors).  She is a five-time all-region honoree and earned Academic All-District honors for the third consecutive year.

In volleyball, Razma capped her career as a four-time first-team all-HCAC selection and a two-time HCAC Defensive Most Valuable Player.  She holds the Rose-Hulman single-game (46) and career (2,655) school records for digs. 

In the classroom, Razma completed her undergraduate degree in May with a 3.97 grade point average as a biomedical engineering major.  She was also named Rose-Hulman's top class of 2018 biomedical engineering graduate.
