GVL Staff

Ashley Botts is going to need a bigger trophy case.
Botts, a senior on Grand Valley State University’s women’s soccer team, became the first-ever Division II athlete to earn the NSCAA College Scholar All-American Player of the Year Award. The accolade is the most recent compliment to her illustrious career in Allendale.
As a senior, she also earned NSCAA All-American First Team honors and was named to the Daktronics, Inc. Second Team.
Botts earned her fourth consecutive All-GLIAC selection this season with 18 goals and five assists. Her 25 career game-winning goals are the most in GVSU history, and her 163 points are third most.
She was also named the Capital One Academic All-American Player of the Year as a junior.
