Erika ZevinThe Midwest Conference has named Erika Zevin’10 its nominee for NCAA Woman of the Year. The conference made the announcement in June.

The NCAA Woman of the Year Award honors senior student-athletes who have distinguished themselves through academic achievement, athletics excellence, service, and leadership.

During her athletic career, the tennis standout from Burr Ridge, Ill., captured three MWC singles tennis championships—in 2006, 2007, and 2009—and finished a runner up both in the number two singles flight in 2008 and the number one doubles all four seasons. As a Buccaneer, she finished with a 42-17 career singles record.

She is one of only five women tennis players in the conference to win three singles championships.

Zevin, who majored in integrative and medical biology and minored in mathematics at Beloit, earned academic all-conference status three times and made the Dean’s List six times. In 2009, she spent a semester studying abroad in Australia, where she volunteered at a hospital and for Relay for Life. She has volunteered in a number of other posts to coach and mentor children. Zevin has been accepted into the M.D. program at the Medical College of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

The NCAA will announce its top 10 honorees per division for Woman of the Year in August, select three finalists per division in September, and name the winner in October.
