World Cup Champion U.S. Women’s National Team Named 2015 Sportswomen of the Year

The U.S. Women's National Team, which last July won the FIFA Women's World Cup, has been selected 2015 Sportswomen of the Year by the Los Angeles Sports Council.

The championship squad, with a lineup that included a significant Southern California presence, will be honored at the 11th Annual LA Sports Awards, to be held on Thursday, February 25 at The Beverly Hilton Hotel.

The Stars and Stripes captured the Cup by defeating Japan in the final, 5-2, played in Vancouver, Canada.

Among those team members with ties to Southern California are Shannon Boxx (Redondo Beach), Whitney Engen (Rolling Hills Estates), Lauren Holiday (UCLA), Sydney Leroux (UCLA), Alex Morgan (Diamond Bar), Christen Press (Palos Verdes Estates) and Amy Rodriguez (Lake Forest/USC).

In addition, U.S. head coach Jill Ellis was the long-time head coach at UCLA, running the women's soccer program for 12 years. Further, the team often conducts training camps at the StubHub Center in Carson.

The LA Sports Awards are presented annually by the Sports Council to celebrate the greatest moments of the year in sports in the Los Angeles/Orange County area.

The ceremony also will feature the presentation of the Lifetime Achievement Award to Los Angeles Dodgers Hall of Fame announcer Vin Scully, presentations to the Sportsman, Coach, and Executive of the Year, plus a countdown of the year's Top Ten moments. The awards banquet will be televised on Fox Sports West/Prime Ticket (air dates TBA).

The Los Angeles Sports Council is a non-profit civic organization whose primary purpose is to promote economic development through sports in the Los Angeles/Orange County area.

On behalf of the community, the Sports Council bids against other cities for the right to host major sporting events, often staging or helping to stage events after successful bids.

Founded in 1988, the Sports Council's efforts represent more than $1 billion in overall economic impact for the region and range from NCAA Championships to the Super Bowl, and from the U.S Olympic Trials to the World Cup.

The Council also works in support of each of the area's established sports teams and facilities.
