Geneseo Sports Information Department

GENESEO, N.Y. - SUNY Geneseo women's cross country and track & field standout Kristen Homeyer '18 will represent the Knights and the State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) as this year's honoree for 2018 NCAA Woman of the Year, announced Wednesday.

The NCAA Woman of the Year program honors graduating student-athletes who have distinguished themselves throughout their collegiate careers in the areas of academic achievement, athletics excellence, service and leadership. Homeyer was chosen by the conference officials and an independent selection committee from the pool of conference nominees as one of 153 student-athletes for consideration for the award.

Homeyer finished an All-American 32nd at the NCAA Cross Country Championships last fall before finishing 10th and 11th, respectively, in the 5,000 at the NCAA Indoor and Outdoor Championships meets this past academic year. She also swept a pair of Atlantic Region Indoor and Outdoor Championship titles in the event, while logging SUNYAC Championships in the indoor 3,000 and the outdoor 5,000 during the season.

Off the track, Homeyer graduated this spring with a 3.61 GPA double majoring in international relations and geography. She recently served as an extern with the Livingston Country Court as well as an intern with the United Nations Association of Rochester. She presented at the American Association of Geographers Middle States Division Conference, worked with The Caumsett Foundation to research grassland restoration at Caumsett State Park and worked as a research assistant on campus, helping to illustrate social, economic and environmental inequalities surrounding Rochester urban schools.

Homeyer will be considered for the NCAA Woman of the Year award among a total of 581 total nominees across all three NCAA divisions. A selection committee will pare the list down to 10 honorees from each division, before narrowing those 30 names down to three honorees from each division. The NCAA Committee on Women's Athletics will then select a winner from those final nine. For more information about the NCAA Woman of the Year Award, visit
