Alyssa Domico ’17, who played softball at Dominican University and is now at the University of Kentucky's school of dentistry, is among the top 30 honorees for the 2017 NCAA Woman of the Year award.

While wrapping up her career at Dominican last spring, Alyssa earned first-team Academic All-America honors for Division III softball by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). A first baseman, she hit .320 with 26 RBI and 29 runs scored, on top of a 4.00 grade-point average in her neuroscience major. In 2016, Alyssa was a second-team Academic All-American.

Last spring, Dominican named Alyssa its senior scholar athlete, and in 2016 she was a finalist for the Arthur Ashe Jr. Diversity Award. Later this month, three female student-athletes apiece from Division I, II and III will be selected as NCAA Woman of the Year finalists. The award winner will be named in a ceremony in Indianapolis on Oct. 22.
