Ozimek is NCAA Woman of the Year finalist

Former Charlotte 49ers women's soccer star Lindsey Ozimek (2004-07) is one of nine finalists for the 2008 NCAA Woman of the Year award. The award recognizes outstanding female student-athletes who have excelled academically and athletically in addition to demonstrating strong community service and leadership.

The original list of 130 female student-athletes was recently paired to 30 and then nine. Ozimek is the only Division I soccer player remaining. The NCAA Committee of Women's Athletics will choose the winner and it will be announced at a banquet in Indianapolis on Oct. 19.

Ozimek, the 2007 Atlantic 10 midfielder of the year, led the league in assists last season (13) and was named all-conference for the third consecutive year. She led Charlotte to the A-10 regular and conference tournament titles and ended her career with a school-history 43 assists.
