College Women: Florance wins Honda Award

Women's College Cup offensive MVP Meredith Florance won another honor -- the 2000-2001 Honda Sports Award. The senior forward, who led North Carolina to its latest NCAA championship, is the second straight Tar Heel to win the award. Lorrie Fair won the 1999 version after leading UNC to that year's championship. Florance's win automatically qualifies her for the Honda-Broderick Cup to be presented to the Collegiate Woman Athlete of the Year at the Honda Awards Program banquet to be held June 11, 2001, in Salt Lake City, Utah. Florance was chosen from among five finalists for the Honda Soccer Award in a national vote of senior women's administrators at NCAA Division I institutions. Florance led the Tar Heels and the Atlantic Coast Conference in scoring with 26 goals and eight assists this season for 60 points. Florance was named the MVP this year in four different tournaments, including the ACC tournament and the NCAA tournament.
