Logan Eggleston Named 2023 NCAA Woman Of The Year

The winner of the 2023 NCAA Woman of the Year has been announced and the honor was awarded to volleyball player, Logan Eggleston formerly of the University of Texas at Austin.

The announcement was made last Thursday, Jan. 11 at the NCAA Convention in Phoenix.

While a student-athlete at Texas, Eggleston majored in business administration and management. She became the first student-athlete from Texas to receive the award.

“It was such an honor to be nominated,” Eggleston said in a written statement. “There are so many amazing student-athletes across the country who are going through their own journeys and their own hardships and finding ways to power through, find success and just grow as people. To be listed alongside some of these amazing student-athletes is incredible, and I’m so honored to have even been considered.”

Eggleston was not able to pick up her honor in person, so her parents did the honors for her.

The volleyball player set the court on fire ever since she was a freshman at Texas. In her first season, she was named Big 12 Conference Player of the Year. During her time at the university, she was an American Volleyball Coaches Association All-American five times, which included three first-team honors. Eggleston, as a three-time Big 12 Conference Player of the Year is one of only two players in conference history to earn first-team All-Big 12 honors five times.

Eggleston led her team to the 2022 NCAA Division I Women’s Volleyball Championship title and also won the NCAA Championship Most Outstanding Player and the 2022 AVCA National Player of the Year.

“The thing I’m most proud of from my time at Texas is definitely winning a national championship,” Eggleston said. “What I’ve dreamed of since I was super young was going somewhere, making a difference at the school and making an impact on the athletic department. I think my team really had the opportunity to do that, and we did.”

Eggleston graduated from Texas and is currently working toward her master’s in sports management from Texas while she is playing volleyball for Galatasaray Sport Club in Istanbul, Turkey.
