Madison Lilley isn’t done winning awards after a record-setting career at Kentucky–and you can help her take home another trophy.
The Wildcats’ Volleyball superstar is coming off a National Player of the Year season that included UK’s first NCAA National Championship, and now she’s up for an ESPY.
On Wednesday morning, ESPN announced that Lilley had been named a finalist for the Best Female College Athlete ESPY Award. She joins Paige Bueckers (UConn women’s basketball), Jaelin Howell (Florida State women’s soccer), and Odicci Alexander (James Madison softball) as the four finalists. Voting is done by the fans, which means it’s up to the Big Blue Nation to push Lilley through as the victor.
The winner of the ESPY will be announced on July 10 at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
While we’re at it, why don’t we check out just a handful of Lilley’s accomplishments during her successful stretch at Kentucky, courtesy of UK Athletics.
