Danielle Berman is one of only three deaf participants among more than 400 student-athletes at Cal State Northridge and has been named "Outstanding Female Athlete of the Year" by CSUN's National Center on Deafness.

Berman was a valuable reserve on the nationally-ranked Cal State Northridge women's water polo team this year. The Matadors finished the year with a school record 28 wins, a Big West regular season championship for a second straight year and a national ranking of 13th.

Berman, who was a redshirt freshman from Irvine, Calif., played in 18 games and scored five goals with six steals.

"Danielle is genuine and a unique individual who has developed into an exceptional student-athlete," said interim head coach Marcelo Leonardi. "Her work ethic is unquestionable and her dedication to her teammates goes beyond the daily interactions on-and-off the pool deck."
