INDIANAPOLIS – Auburn softball standout Kasey Cooper was voted as the winner of the NCAA Elite 90 Fan Favorite contest, announced by the association on Thursday evening.

The all-american infielder dominated the top portion throughout the competition and collected 38 percent of the final votes in the last round. During the final round of voting, however, Cooper was down by as many as 1,000 votes, but stormed back to complete the comeback in the final hours and take the top spot.
Cooper ended the first round in second before the votes were reset. She then took the top spot in the semifinals and maintained that momentum in the final round to reign supreme.
In total, Cooper received 6,050 votes in the final round to receive the crown of the NCAA Elite 90 Fan Favorite.
In order to be eligible for the award, the student-athlete with the highest cumulative GPA participating at the finals site for each of the NCAA’s 90 championships was tabbed as a member of the Elite 90. From there, the 90 representatives were voted on by the public through a nine-day voting period that was divided into three rounds.
Cooper, a Mechanical Engineering major, maintained a perfect 4.0 GPA while putting together one of the best seasons ever in Auburn softball history. The Dothan, Ala. native set seven single-season program records and took ownership of four career records was a mainstay in the lineup at third base en route to being named the espnW Player of the Year.
She paced the nation’s top scoring offense with a .422 batting average, 19 triples, 21 home runs and 83 RBI. Cooper also top the team’s leaderboard with an .872 slugging percentage and an on-base clip of .581. For her efforts, she was tabbed as the SEC Player of the Year and Scholar-Athlete of the Year – the first ever to do both.
Cooper also received recognition for her outstanding performance in the classroom as she was selected as a CoSIDA Academic All-American.
She becomes the first winner of the NCAA Elite 90 Fan Favorite in program history.

Money Magazine rates the best in each state

MONEY’s annual Best Colleges rankings and search tools are designed to help families find a great college at a great price. For many college-bound students, that means a campus within a few hours of home. In fact, eight in 10 college freshman attend a school that’s less than 500 miles from home, according to UCLA’s annual survey of college freshman. That’s why we’ve pulled together this list of the highest-ranked college in each state. If you’re wondering why you’ll see just 49 schools, it’s because two states—Alaska and New Mexico—don’t have any colleges that made this year’s rankings (but D.C. does have one).

State of Alabama

Auburn University

Overall rank: 206
  • Estimated price for 2016-17 without aid: $30,300
  • Estimated price for 2016-17 with average aid: $19,100
  • Average student debt: $22,250
  • Early career earnings: $49,000
With an undergraduate population of about 21,700, Auburn isn’t among the largest colleges in our rankings (or even in its state), but a long-time annual tradition known as Hey Day makes it feel even smaller. Students, faculty, and staff all wear nametags and are encouraged to say “hey” to anyone they see on campus. Full profile.
