LOS ANGELES (AP) California swimmer Missy Franklin won the Honda Cup as the nation's top female college athlete Monday night.
The sophomore star was the NCAA and Pac-12 Swimmer of the Year and helped Cal to the team title. She set an American record on her way to victory in the 200-yard freestyle and also won the 200-yard individual medley and 200-yard backstroke. In addition, Franklin played a role in wins by the 200 free relay and 800 free relay.
Franklin beat out UConn's Breanna Stewart, who helped the Huskies win a third straight national championship in women's basketball, and Florida softball standout Lauren Haeger.
She established a school record for most combined individual and relay crowns at one NCAA meet with five titles this season and combined for seven NCAA titles in two seasons. She is a 14-time All-American.
