Young Female Athletes Honored for Their Achievements at Sports Banquet

Posted: Updated:

An organization called Women in Sports is recognizing young female athletes in central Virginia for their achievements.

The group held its annual banquet at Saint Anne's Belfield School in Charlottesville. Around 70 high school female student athletes were honored.

Three scholarships were also given out, including the $3,000 Claudia Dodson Integrity Award.

"It's not necessarily recognition like the news magazines like oh this person scored the most goals in this game, it's also out of I guess their academics, stuff within their community, the athlete as a whole, not just their performance on the field." said Sarah Turner, the Women in Sports president.

This year, Bridgett Sweeney from Western Albemarle High School won that top award.
