Connecticut's Maya Moore Edges Out Sheila Reid

The Collegiate Women Sports Awards today announced that Maya Moore, University of Connecticut basketball star and current forward of the WNBA Minnesota Lynx, has won the Honda-Broderick Cup, designating her as the Collegiate Woman Athlete of the Year. Moore edged out Blair Brown, Penn State (volleyball) and Villanova's Sheila Reid (track). The three finalists were chosen from previously announced Honda Sports Award winners in 12 different NCAA sanctioned sports by a vote from among more than 1,000 NCAA-member institutions.

An earlier press release announcing Sheila as one of the three finalists for the award said this about the 'Nova track star: "Reid capped a great year when she was crowned the NCAA Outdoor Champion in the 1500-meter and 5,000- meter races - the first woman in history to win both events in the same year. She was also the Indoor National Champion in the distance medley. She was selected All-American in the 3,000-meter. She finished her season as the Big East Indoor champion in the 1000-meter, 4x800-meter relay, distance medley relay and outdoor titlist in the 1,500-meter and 5,000-meter. The indoor and outdoor Mid-Atlantic Region Athlete of the Year is a 12-time Big East Champion, a nine-time All-American selection and NCAA individual cross country titlist. Reid is an academic standout in addition to her excellence in athletics. The four-time Big East Academic all-Star was selected to the Academic All-District first team and holds a GPA of 3.408 with a major in English."
