NEW YORK (AP) - Danielle Lawrie of Washington has won the Honda
Award as the nation's top college softball player.

The junior from Canada helped send the Huskies to their first national championship. Lawrie had a nation-leading 42 wins and 521 strikeouts. The 5-foot-7 right-hander redshirted during the 2008 season to play for her country at the Beijing Olympics, where Canada came in fourth.

The other three finalists were Florida's Stacey Nelson, Arizona State's Kaitlin Cochran and Northwestern's Tammy Williams.

Lawrie is in the running for the Honda-Broderick Cup, given to the college female athlete of the year. The winner will be announced June 22 in New York.
