Katie O'Donnell spent two weeks before the Women's Sports Foundation's annual awards dinner practicing walking in her five-inch heels - just in case. The former Wissahickon field hockey standout didn't think she would win the Sportswoman of the Year Award on Oct. 12 in New York, although she was among five finalists. To her surprise, the walking practice paid off. The University of Maryland senior won. "My brother Joe just told me to go to New York and enjoy myself," said O'Donnell, 21, who figured that's what she would do. "When I won, I had to walk all the way from the back [of the Waldorf Astoria hall]

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Security guard to University of Maryland staffer: "Which one is Katie O'Donnell?" Maryland staffer: "You'll know. " During warm-ups, the Wissahickon High School graduate, a senior at Maryland, may look like anyone else with a field hockey stick and a ponytail. But she could be the nation's most dominant college athlete. O'Donnell proved it again Friday, scoring all three goals in a 3-1 victory over Ohio State as the top-ranked Terps advanced to Sunday's national championship game against North Carolina.

Maryland won a tension-packed NCAA Division I field hockey final Sunday, taking the national championship with a 3-2 double-overtime victory over defending champion North Carolina. The game-winner in the 98th minute was scored by sophomore Megan Frazer on a feed from Wissahickon High graduate Katie O'Donnell after the senior had intercepted a pass. Two more minutes and the game would have gone to penalty strokes. "I really didn't have much energy left at the end of this game," O'Donnell said at a news conference afterward in College Park, Md. "I just ran five steps really hard to intercept it because I knew if it got past me, I'd be running all the way back to the end of the field.

Wissahickon field hockey coach Lucy Gil was recently analyzing the difference between last year's team, which won the District 1 Class AAA championship and advanced to the PIAA semifinals, and this year's team. A surprising 2-0 Suburban One League American Division loss to Springfield (Montgomery County) a week ago prompted Gil to do her analysis. "The difference is that last year's team played as hard as it could every single game," Gil said, after her Trojans thumped visiting Methacton, 6-0, in another conference game.

Is there another college sport in which one area provides as much talent as the Philadelphia suburbs routinely offer up in field hockey? The National Field Hockey Coaches Association player of the year award, a relatively new honor, was announced Tuesday, and it went to Connecticut's Marie Elena Bolles, a star of the Huskies' run to the NCAA championship.
