INDIANAPOLIS – Emily Haas, who recently wrapped up a standout four-year career with the Stevenson University women's golf program, has been selected as the Middle Atlantic Conference (MAC) nominee for the 2017 NCAA Woman of the Year award. Haas is one of 53 Division III conference nominees and 145 conference nominees across all three NCAA divisions.
The NCAA Woman of the Year selection committee will now select the top 10 candidates in each division, and from among those 30 candidates, 10 finalists will be chosen. The 2017 NCAA Woman of the Year will be announced at a dinner on Sunday, October 22 in Indianapolis.
Haas, who graduated with a degree in Fashion Merchandising in May, became Stevenson's seventh CoSIDA Academic All-American when she was selected to the At-Large Third Team this spring. A member of the WGCA All-American Scholar Team, Haas also earned the MAC Senior Scholar-Athlete Award for women's golf, and was a three-time member of the MAC All-Academic Team. Haas is a two-time NCAA Elite 90 Award winner, and received Stevenson's Dean Dawson Award for having the highest cumulative GPA of a graduating senior student-athlete.
On the golf course, Haas was a three-time MAC All-Conference performer. She helped lead the Mustangs to back-to-back MAC titles and NCAA appearances in 2015 and 2016 and to a runner-up finish in this spring's MAC Championship.
