Sarah Franklin of the Badger volleyball team is nominated for Outstanding Female College Athlete, along with Iowa’s Caitlin Clark, LSU’s Haleigh Bryant and Northwestern’s Izzy Scane.

Franklin is only the third Badger to receive a nomination as a current student-athlete. Hockey player Blake Geoffrion and basketball star Frank Kaminsky are the only other two in the elite group. Franklin, the Big Ten Player of the Year and AVCA National Player of the Year, will now look to add another accolade to her illustrious career.

The ESPY Awards ceremony will take place on July 11 in Los Angeles.
