Top 25 Finalists Announced for Division II Player of the Year

The second-annual Division II National Player of the Year award will be handed out in 2016 and the top twenty-five finalists who will vie to receive it have been announced.

Twenty-two Division II programs are represented by at least a single player on the list, as well as fifteen conferences. Humboldt State with three and North Georgia with a pair were the only teams to place more than one player on the list of finalists.



Notable names on the list include national headline-grabbers Morgan Foley of Indianapolis and Hannah Perryman of Missouri-St. Louis, as well as the award's inaugural winner in 2015, North Georgia's Courtney Poole. The list is comprised of fourteen seniors; six juniors; and five sophomores.

The current list of twenty-five will be narrowed down to the top ten finalists on May 6, with the final trio named on May 12 and the National Player of the Year trophy being awarded on May 17.
