She is the second Lipscomb player to be a candidate for the award. Last season softball player Kellie Sirus was on the list.
From the list of 30 candidates, 10 finalists will be selected by a national media committee and announced in mid-October. Fan balloting as well as votes from coaches and media will determine the final winner.
