Dabrowski Named Female Athlete of the Year

Female Athlete of the Year: Veronica Dabrowski 2013-14
PALATINE, Ill. – Harper volleyball player Veronica Dabrowski (Mount Prospect, Ill./Rolling Meadows) won numerous awards as a student-athlete in her two years at Harper. All of her accomplishments have earned her the 2013-14 Harper Female Athlete of the Year Award.

In 2013, Dabrowski earned NJCAA All-American status for her play on her court. Additionally, she earned First Team All-Region, First Team All-Conference, and Region IV All-Tournament Team honors. She was named to three other All-Tournament teams in 2013. Academically, Dabrowski earned N4C Academic All-Conference honors.

In 2012, she earned First Team All-Conference, N4C Academic All-Conference and was named to two All-Tournament teams.

"Quite honestly, this year's winner couldn't happen to be a more deserving, humble, down-to-earth and gracious person," said Harper head volleyball coach Bob Vilsoet. "It makes me proud!"

The Rolling Meadows High School grad made the most of her time off the court as well, serving as an Orientation Leader at the Center for New Students. Additionally, Dabrowski was a Distinguished Scholar and a member of the Harper College Honors Program and member of Phi Theta Kappa.

"Veronica is exactly what the award is trying to embrace. We are looking for top student-athletes that also give back to the community," Vilsoet said. "I also think it demonstrates Harper's athletic department's commitment to success not only on the field, but in the classroom and the community."

Dabrowski will continue her volleyball career next year at Bethel College, located in Mishawaka, Indiana, where she will be a pre-med student.
