Established in 1991, the NCAA Woman of the Year award recognizes graduating female college athletes who have distinguished themselves in academics, athletics, service and leadership throughout their collegiate careers.
 
Ray, a Portland, Ore., native, graduated with a 3.95 grade point average, majoring in cell and molecular biology. On the field, she was named WAC Offensive Player of the Year, leading Seattle U to the 2019 WAC regular-season and tournament titles. Ray scored in overtime to lift the Redhawks to the WAC Tournament crown, earning MVP honors. She was also a 2019 United Soccer Coaches Scholar All-West Region pick and a 2018 CoSIDA Academic All-District First Team choice.
 
In her four years, Ray helped Seattle U appear in three NCAA Tournaments, winning three WAC Tournaments and a pair of WAC regular-season titles. She ranks third in program history in career goals (25), assists (20) and points (70).
 
Next, the WAC will choose a candidate from member schools to represent the conference on the national level. Conference candidates will be announced in August.
