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.
