The Sterling, Mass., native is one of four women from ACC schools to be selected. Borchelt and Florida State’s Kim Williams (track and field) are listed as the conference’s nominees, while NC State's Jess Panza (gymnastics) and Duke's Becca Ward (fencing) are independent nominees, as their sports are not covered within traditional conferences.
“Sarah is one of those rare gems that comes along every once in awhile,” Virginia rowing head coach Kevin Sauer said. “She is bright, personable and passionate about her studies, sport, community, friends and teammates. It is not a surprise at all that she would be honored in this way.”
The NCAA Women of the Year honors graduating female student-athletes who have distinguished themselves throughout the collegiate careers in the areas of academic achievement, athletics excellence, service and leadership. From the 429 nominees, the top 10 will be chosen for each division. Three finalists will be chosen to make up the final nine finalists. The national winner will be announced during the 2012 NCAA Woman of the Year awards event on October 14, 2012 in Indianapolis, Ind.
In 2012, Borchelt was named to the Captial One Academic All-America Women’s At-Large First Team and was selected as the ACC Rowing Scholar-Athlete of the Year for the second consecutive year. A two-year co-captain, she was a part of the Second Varsity Eight that finished fifth and helped the Cavaliers win the 2012 NCAA Championship.
Borchelt has been named a Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association (CRCA) National Scholar-Athlete each of the last three years, to the All-ACC Academic Rowing team three consecutive seasons and to the VaSID Academic All-State squad the past two years.
