"This year's honorees have made lasting contributions to their respective organizations, and the overall sports landscape."

"This year's honorees have made lasting contributions to their respective organizations, and the overall sports landscape, and we applaud them for their efforts, dedication and commitment to serving as an inspiration to other aspiring women.
