Maryland field hockey star Katie O'Donnell is honored
For her role in leading Maryland’s field hockey team to their first 18-0 regular season and ACC championship during the 2009-2010 season, senior Katie O’Donnell has been named the Women’s Sports Foundation’s sportswoman of the year.
O’Donnell also led the NCAA in assists and points last season while breaking the ACC’s career assist record.
O’Donnell, the 2009 Honda Sports Award Winner, received her latest honor in ceremonies Tuesday at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York.
Currently a starter for the U.S. senior national team, she has competed in more than 40 international games. Former Maryland lacrosse player Caitlyn McFadden was among the nominees, as was USA Softball’s Jennie Finch, Olympic hockey gold medalist Meghan Agosta, and Betsey Armstrong, goalkeeper for the U.S. Water Polo team.
