The College of Saint Rose women’s soccer player Nina Predanic was named the 2020 Northeast-10 Conference Woman of the Year on Tuesday.
Predanic wrapped up her outstanding intercollegiate athletic and academic careers, while maintaining an overall grade-point average that stands above a 3.70 and being active within the local community.
A business administration major from Brezice, Slovenia, who is playing professionally with SK Sturm Damen in Austria, Predanic was a two-time United Soccer Coaches first-team All-American, a four-time NE-10 All-Conference honoree, and the conference’s 2019 Player of the Year. She was also named the Division II Conference Commissioner’s Association (D2CCA) East Region Player of the Year, garnered United Soccer Coaches first-team Scholar All-East accolades and College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-America honors.
In the process, she helped the Golden Knights (21-3-1) tie a league record with their eighth NE-10 postseason championship while earning their seventh NCAA National semifinal appearance within the past 12 years.
Predanic is the fourth Saint Rose student-athlete, and third women’s soccer player, to garner this award. Former women’s soccer players Kailey Egbert and Christina Cuffari garnered the award in 2009 and 2012, respectively, while former swimming and diving standout Caitlin Brauer was bestowed with the honor in 2013.
