HARTWICK'S POLAK NAMED 2018 ANNA MEYER FEMALE ATHLETE OF THE YEAR / NCAA WOMAN OF THE YEAR NOMINEE
ONEONTA, N.Y. — Senior water polo utility Zsofia Polak (Sr., Dunaujvaros, Hungary/Rudas) earned the highest honors bestowed on a women’s student-athlete at her institution as she claimed the Anna Meyer Female Athlete of the Year Award for the third consecutive year at the Hartwick College Intercollegiate Athletics Awards Ceremony, held in the Binder Physical Education Center’s Lambros Arena on May 10.
In addition, she was selected as Hartwick’s nominee for the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Woman of the Year award.
Polak earned Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) First Team and the CWPA All-Tournament First Team honors for the third straight season while helping Hartwick water polo to a third-place finish at the conference championships for the third time in four seasons. She led the Hawks with 181 points and 72 assists this season, became the program’s all-time leading goal scorer (375), and became just the second player in program history to reach 600 points.
The NCAA Woman of the Year program honors the academic achievements, athletics excellence, community service and leadership of graduating female college athletes from all three divisions. To be eligible, a nominee must have competed and earned a varsity letter in an NCAA-sponsored sport, must have completed eligibility in her primary sport, and must have earned her undergraduate degree by Summer 2018.
