Former Louisiana Tech soccer midfielder Amber Posthauer is one of 535 female college athletes nominated by NCAA member schools for the 2021 NCAA Woman of the Year award.

Posthauer finished up her four-year career as a Lady Techster this past spring, amassing 33 points on 14 goals and five assists while famously breaking the single-game program and Conference USA record for most points and goals during her junior year.

In the classroom, the Pflugerville, Texas native was both a C-USA All-Academic First Team selection and a First Team CoSIDA Academic All-District 6 honoree this past season.

The four-time C-USA Commissioner’s Honor Roll recipient and three-time C-USA Academic Medalist recently graduated with a cumulative grade point average of 3.98 while majoring in Exercise and Health Promotion with a minor in Entrepreneurship.

Established in 1991, the NCAA Woman of the Year award is rooted in Title IX and recognizes graduating female college athletes who have exhausted their NCAA eligibility and distinguished themselves in academics, athletics, service and leadership throughout their collegiate careers.

The nominees competed in 24 sports across all three NCAA divisions, including 251 nominees from Division I, 107 from Division II and 177 from Division III. Multisport student-athletes account for 141 of the nominees.

The NCAA encourages member schools to honor their top graduating female college athletes by nominating them for the Woman of the Year award.
