Misner joins three other nominees from the MAC Commonwealth in the pool of 543 total nominees across all three divisions. Included in the record number of nominees, 197 came from Division III while 122 are multisport athletes.

Misner has started in 73 of her 74 career games played as a member of the women’s lacrosse team and is among the program’s all-time leading scorers while earning all-conference honors in each of her four collegiate seasons. She had an immediate impact with the women’s lacrosse program, starting all 19 games and totaling 62 points as a freshman, helping lead the team to a MAC Freedom Championship and a berth in the NCAA tournament.

Misner is in fifth-place on the program’s all-time goals list with 153 and sixth all-time in points with 193. She is second all-time in draw controls with 213, and seventh in caused turnovers with 54. She started in all 18 games this season, and led the team in scoring with 42 goals while finishing third on the team in points (54) and assists (12).

As a member of the field hockey team, Misner started in 50 of her 78 career games played, helping lead the team to three playoff appearances in four years and a MAC Commonwealth regular season title as a sophomore. In addition to her athletic accomplishments, she has been named to the MAC Academic Honor Roll and the NFHCA National Academic Squad, led a number of community service initiatives, and severed on the Student Athlete Advisory Committee’s executive board.

The NCAA established the Woman of the Year Award program to celebrate the achievements of women in intercollegiate athletics. The award is unique because it recognizes not only the athletics achievements of outstanding young women, but also their academic achievements, community service and leadership. The conference office will select one of the four MAC Commonwealth nominees to move on in the selection process.
