Sarah Pavan - really really tall. That guy with the award? He's at least 6'11" hisself.  Source:( Huskers.com)

Nebraska's Sarah Pavan was named the 2006-2007 Collegiate Woman Athlete of the Year this morning, winning the Honda-Broderick Cup. She's Nebraska's first-ever athlete to win the Honda-Broderick Cup. Apparently they place stock in being a good student, too, and Pavan has a 4.0 GPA in biochemistry.

Regarding past winners, Pavan is in pretty good company:

  • Misty May, '98-99, Long Beach State Volleyball, although probably better known for playing beach volleyball with Kerri Walsh while winning gold at the last Olympics.
  • Rebecca Lobo, '94-95, UConn basketball star, known for big teeth and ESPN commentary on women's b-basketball
  • Mia Hamm, '93-'94, North Carolina soccer (duh), known for many commercials and winning a World Cup
  • Jackie Joyner-Kersee, '84-'85, California, track & field, who has won three gold, one silver and two bronze medals in the Olympics.  

Her biography shows a huge amount of awards and she was just a Junior last season. There are two BIG questions yet about Sarah Pavan's Husker career:

  • Will she win back-to-back NCAA volleyball titles?
  • Will she surpass Merlene Ottey as the greatest Husker female athlete ever?

And yes there are pictures of Pavan playing beach volleyball with fellow Husker Jordan Larson.
