2019 Sorensen Award Nominees Released: Vote!

The nominees for the MA Sorensen Award for the top women's college player in the country have been released.

The award is named after groundbreaking William & Mary and USA prop MaryAnne Sorensen, who was a pioneer in the women's game as a player and a coach, and remains a highly-respected doctor. Sorensen has been present at all three Sorensen Award presentations. 


On display at the Washington Athletic Club, jerseys from the three previous Sorensen Award winners: Hope Rogers (Penn State, 2016), Ilona Maher (Quinnipiac, 2017), McKenzie Hawkins (Lindenwood, 2018), and the three previous Scholz Award winners: Dylan Audsley, Connor McNerney, and Bryce Campbell.


Sponsored by the Washington Athletic Club in Seattle, WA, the Sorensen Award is selected each spring and officially presented during a gala event in June. This year the event, once again held at the Washington Athletic Club in Seattle, will be held June 8.

The nominees were selected by a panel of college coaches and administrators, overseen by FloRugby Senior Editor Alex Goff. One nominee was voted on by the fans, and the fans will have a heavy hand in deciding the finalists.
