Morgan named U.S. Soccer's female athlete of year

CHICAGO (AP) -- Forward Alex Morgan has won the U.S. Soccer Federation's female athlete of the year award.

The national team star won voting that was weighted equally between fans on Facebook, and representatives from U.S. Soccer and the national media, the federation announced Monday.

Morgan led Team USA this year with 28 goals, including the deciding score in the 123rd minute of the United States' 4-3 win over Canada in the Olympic semifinals. The Americans then won the gold medal.

Morgan is also on the short list for FIFA's Golden Ball award as top player in the world.

The young female athlete of the year award went to under-20 national team defender Julie Johnston.
