WATERVILLE, MAINE – Recent Johnson graduate Kylie Aither has been nominated for the North Atlantic Conference Woman of the Year.
The award honors graduating student-athletes who have distinguished themselves throughout their collegiate careers in the areas of academic achievement, athletics excellence, service and leadership.
Aither was a two-year captain for the Badgers' women's soccer team, while earning All-NAC First Team honors in 2017.
