Texas Top 5 Female Athletes of the Year

Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 09:47 PM CDT
Bailey's bounce back bolts us into the countdown.  One year after a season ending knee injury, UT outside hitter Bailey Webster earned big 12 player of the year honors.  She finished 2nd on the team in kills and led the Horns to a big 12 title and regional final.  She was named a 1st team All-American.

Making a splash at number 4 is senior swimmer Karlee Bispo. The Modesto, California native set school records in the 100 and 200 freestyle this past year in helping lead the horns to a top 10 finish at the NCAA championships. Bispo leaves Texas as both an 18-time All-American and Big-12 Champion.

Back to volleyball we go - this time for the Big-12 Freshman of the Year.  Haley Eckerman in at # 3 - she became the 2nd player in UT history to earn National Freshman of the Year honors - the Waterloo, Iowa native led Texas in kills, kills per set, services aces, and points.

Bennett ballin’ at number 2. Softball infielder Lexy Bennett's bat ignited a record setting season as she set school single season records with 57 RBI and 132 total bases. Her .422 average was 2nd highest in school history. She was named both a First Team All-American and all Big-12. Bennett leaves Texas holding nearly every career offensive record

At number 1 - Texas soccer forward Kylie Doniak.  She didn't break records or earn All-American honors this year - but her heart and courage represent so much more.  Doniak was the victim of a hit and run in February, but has preserved throughout her recovery.  In the spring Texas presented her with the Bev Kearney Texas Tough Award, honoring the student athlete who possesses a fighter’s spirit and courageous heart. For her sprit, heart, and courage, Kylie Doniak is a female athlete of the year.
