Notre Dame's Melissa Henderson Dubbed Nation's Top Women's Soccer Player

The Honda Sports Award for the nation's top women's soccer player was given to Notre Dame Junior Melissa Henderson.

On Tuesday the announcement was made after balloting from roughly the 1,000 NCAA member schools.

She also was named the best offensive player in this year's College Cup, as she helped the Irish claim their third national championship in school history. In fact, she assisted on the game-winning goal in the championship game, a 1-0 victory over heavily-favored Stanford.

Cindy Daws, a 1997 winner of the Honda Sports Award, is the only other Irish soccer player to win the coveted award.

Congratulations to Melissa on her accomplishment!
