Ochoa, Abbott are selected Sportswomen of the Year:

 

They were honored Monday night in New York along with figure skater Michelle Kwan and the Rutgers women's basketball team at the Salute to Women in Sports.

Ochoa won her seventh tournament of the season Sunday and clinched her second consecutive LPGA Tour player-of-the-year award.

Abbott, chosen as top player in the team-sports category, had a 50-5 record with an earned-run average of 0.68 and 29 shutouts for the Vols.

Kwan, a five-time world champion, won the Billie Jean King contribution award for her visits to China and Russia as the first U.S. public-diplomacy envoy.

The Rutgers team received the Wilma Rudolph courage award. The team, the NCAA runner-up to Tennessee, withstood racist and sexist comments by radio host Don Imus and was praised for its conduct at a nationally televised news conference that addressed issues of race and gender.

The Women's Sports Foundation, founded by King, is marking its 33rd anniversary.
