Now in its 39th year, The Collegiate Women Sports Awards program annually recognizes the accomplishments of female athletes in NCAA-member colleges with a variety of prestigious awards.

These include:

Division III Honda Sports Award: The Honda Sports Award acknowledges athletic achievement as well as scholastics and community involvement. The award is given to female athletes in 12 different NCAA Division III-sanctioned sports throughout the year.

Athletes are honored for their achievement in sports of soccer, volleyball, cross country, field hockey, gymnastics, basketball, swimming & diving, lacrosse, softball, golf, tennis and track & field. Each Honda Sports Award winner is recognized as the top collegiate female athlete in her sport, and the award is considered by many as one of the highest honors a female college athlete can receive in the nation.

Division III Athletes of the Year: Division III Athlete of the Year awards are given to the nation’s top collegiate female athletes in their respective Divisions, chosen from 11 different sports, with each having one nominee derived from coaches’ panels, All-America committees or finish at the respective national championship. Sports include basketball, cross country, field hockey, golf, lacrosse, soccer, softball, swimming & diving, tennis, track & field and volleyball.

UW-Oshkosh student-athletes have won the Division III Athlete of the Year twice, Tiffany (Speckman) Ebensperger in 1997 and Christy Cazzola in 2014.

American Honda Motor Co., Inc. has been a partner of THE Collegiate Women Sports Awards Program since 1986. Honda has donated more than $2.8 million in institutional grants to the athletes' universities over the course of the program.
