A record 543 female college athletes have been nominated by the NCAA member schools with 229 from Division I, 117 from Division II and 197 from Division III.

The top 30 honorees will be recognized and the 2017 NCAA Woman of the Year will be announced at the annual award ceremony on Oct. 22 in Indianapolis.
