Last week, Brown was named one of three finalists for the Honda-Broderick Cup, awarded annually to the Collegiate Woman Athlete of the Year. Days later, the Big Ten Player of the Year was selected as one of five ESPY nominees for Best Female College Athlete. The ESPYs will be held on July 13 in Los Angeles and be televised by ESPN.
A three-time All-Big Ten selection, Brown finished her career with 1,295 kills, ranking 14th all-time at Penn State. Last season, she started all 37 matches in leading the Nittany Lions to their fourth straight national championship.
