NEW YORK – Caroline Hedwall of Oklahoma State won the Honda Sports Award.
The sophomore won the NCAA Championship earlier this month. A native of Loddekopinge, Sweden, Hedwall tied the NCAA scoring record by shooting 12 under at the national championship, which was held at the Country Club of Landfall.
She beat three other nominees: Auburn junior Cydney Clayton, Arizona State freshman Jennifer Johnson and Southern California sophomore Jennifer Song.
