Junior defender Caroline Dreher was honored Friday afternoon as the 2017 Big Ten Sportsmanship Award winner for the IU women's soccer team.

Dreher was the lone Big Ten award recipient for IU women's soccer this season after the Hoosiers finished 2-6-3 in conference play.

Dreher appeared in all 19 games this season to go along with 16 starts. She had nine shots on the season and assisted on sophomore midfielder Chandra Davidson's game-winning goal at Michigan State on Sept. 14.

There is one player from each team chosen as a recipient for the Big Ten Sportsmanship Award and those recipients are described as individuals who have distinguished themselves though sportsmanship and ethical behavior per the IU Athletics release. 

These students must also be in good academic standing and have demonstrated good citizenship outside of the sports-competition setting.
