Holland Hall graduate Hillary Bach is one of nine finalists for NCAA Woman of the Year. The winner will be announced Sunday during a ceremony in Indianapolis.
A total of 429 female student-athletes were nominated for the 22nd annual award.

Bach, who graduated from Arizona State in three years with an undergraduate degree in business marketing in 2011, was a pitcher for the Sun Devils softball team and was named Pac-12 Conference Woman of the Year last August.
She was awarded an NCAA postgraduate scholarship in July and is working toward a master's degree in business administration.
