INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- Covenant women's basketball junior Rachel Price has been named as one of the 103 nominees for the Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) and Allstate Insurance Company Good Works Team, announced the organizations on Wednesday morning.
In its fourth year, the Allstate WBCA and NABC Good Works Teams recognize players at all levels of college basketball who have made outstanding contributions in the areas of volunteerism and civic involvement. From establishing nonprofits that provide youth with the necessary tools to become leaders of tomorrow, to raising awareness around pertinent issues that could save lives, these student-athletes exhibit impeccable leadership skills both on and off the court.
The 103 WBCA nominees and the 154 NABC nominees were submitted by sports information directors and college basketball coaches across the country. From the nominations, special voting panels, headlined by former University of Tennessee basketball athlete, NCAA champion and WNBA legend Tamika Catchings, and former Duke University basketball athlete, two-time NCAA champion and seven-time NBA All-Star Grant Hill, will select two 10-member teams comprised of five student-athletes from the NCAA Division I level and five student-athletes from Divisions II, III and the NAIA. The final roster of 20 award recipients will be unveiled in February.
Price, a junior forward from Sale Creek, Tenn., has been involved in several volunteer opportunities within the Chattanooga-area for several years. She has helped promote the American Cancer Society through various ventures, including being interviewed by Chatter Magazine this summer for the Hope of Gala Ball. Price has interned with local doctors as she pursues a career in the medical field and has worked with Sunny 92.3 during their Cure Kids Cancer Radioathon for the Erlanger Children's Hospital. She has participated in the Relay for Life the last two years and spent a summer working with Light House Family Retreat.
Additionally, Price has volunteered with basketball camps, PTA, and her church. At Covenant, she has been a member of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) for two years and serves as the committee chair for community service.
