Penn State women’s soccer player Raquel Rodriguez is among the nominees for the Best Female Collegiate Athlete award at the 2016 ESPYS, the athletic department announced in a press release Thursday.

The ESPYS will be televised live at 8 p.m. July 13 on ABC. UConn basketball player Breanna Stewart, Southern California volleyball player Samantha Bricio, Maryland lacrosse player Taylor Cummings and Michigan softball player Sierra Romero were also nominated for the ESPYS award.

Rodriguez scored the game-winning goal to lead Penn State past Duke 1-0 in the national championship game last season.

Rodriguez earned the MAC Hermann Trophy, given to the top female college soccer player in the country.
