Greencastle, Ind. - Caroline Zadina (Glencoe, Ill./Loyola Academy), a psychology major and interpersonal communication minor on the women's soccer team, has been selected as DePauw's top senior female student-athlete by the University's department of intercollegiate athletics as she earned the Amy Hasbrook Award.
The Hasbrook Award is presented annually to a senior female student-athlete who best exemplifies effort and excellence in academics, athletics, leadership, integrity, dedication to the team, campus involvement and community service.
A midfielder for the Tigers, Zadina served as captain and was most valuable player of the 2015 team that won the North Coast Athletic Conference regular season and tournament championships. She led DePauw to 12-7-2 overall record as the Tigers advanced to the second round of the NCAA Division III Championship for the first time since 2005. Zadina, who scored two goals on the season, earned honorable mention all-NCAC honors in 2015 and 2013.
Zadina recorded the highest cumulative grade point average of any DePauw senior female student-athlete last spring and, as a junior, was initiated into both Phi Beta Kappa and Chi Alpha Sigma honor societies. She was recipient of the Charles and Frances (Wylie) Condit Science Scholarship for psychology in 2015 and was a poster presenter at the 2015 Midwest Psychological Association Conference in 2015 as well as a Prindle Ethics Symposium presentation winner in 2013.
Zadina was the team's representative to DePauw's Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) and, as a senior, served as a presidential ambassador and on the academic life committee. She also was DePauw's representative on the NCAC's Branch Rickey Mentor Program. Zadina served the community as a head coach in the Putnam County Youth Soccer League and participated in a three-week trip to El Salvador as part of DePauw's extended studies program.
Other finalists for this year's Hasbrook Award included Caroline Bridges (swimming & diving), Linsey Button (softball), Maryclaire Heldring (lacrosse), Abby Keller (basketball) and Keely McGrath (volleyball).
Marcus Dozier of the men's track and field team and Alex Grissom, of the men's swimming and diving squad, were named co-recipients of the Phil Eskew Award as the top senior male student-athlete. Complete information on that is available here.
The awards are named for former DePauw student-athletes Amy Hasbrook '00 and Phil Eskew Jr. '63. Hasbrook was a four-year letterwinner for the women's basketball team who lost her life in a fire in 2002. Eskew, the president of DePauw's "D" Association for over 20 years, was a 1994 inductee into the DePauw Athletic Hall of Fame and was instrumental in its formation in 1986.
