Keilani Ricketts is a two-time USA Softball National Player of the Year and a national champion.
Now, she is also a two-time Honda Sports Award winner.
The Collegiate Women’s Sports Awards announced Thursday that Ricketts, who helped her team to the 2013 National Title, is the recipient of this year’s Honda Sports Award for softball. She is now a finalist for the 2013 Honda Cup, given to the best female athlete in all of collegiate athletics.
Ricketts is the seventh player to win the award, which was created in 1977, more than once, joining softball greats such as Danielle Lawrie (Washington), Cat Osterman (Texas), Jennie Finch (Arizona) and Lisa Fernandez (UCLA).
The Honda Cup will be presented on June 24 and will air live on ESPNU from the USC Galen Center Founders Room in Los Angeles.
“It’s an amazing honor to represent my team and my sport at the Honda Cup award ceremony for such a prestigious honor,” Ricketts said. “I would like to thank the Honda Sports Awards voters and my teammates for making this incredible opportunity possible.”
