Katie O'Donnell, a graduate of Wissahickon High School, was honored as national sportswoman of the year Tuesday night by the Women's Sports Foundation.
A member of the national field hockey team and a University of Maryland star, O'Donnell was one of five finalists. She beat out a fellow Terrapin, lacrosse player Caitlyn McFadden; USA softball star Jennie Finch; Olympic hockey gold medalist Meghan Agosta; and USA water polo goalkeeper Betsey Armstrong.
"I am still pinching myself to see if this is real," O'Donnell said in a statement. "I was alongside some of the most amazing names in women's sports, and it is just such an honor to be recognized amongst them."
