Megan Hodge Up For ESPY

Penn State women’s volleyball star Megan Hodge has been lugging around a lot of hardware over the past few months. She started out by being named the AVCA Division 1 Women’s Volleyball National Player of the Year and the Penn State Female Athlete of the Year. In the past month, she has also won the Suzy Favor Award (given to the Big Ten’s top female performer) and the Honda-Broderick Cup, presented to the best female athlete in the NCAA. And on this coming Wednesday, she could have another honor to add to her already over-loaded trophy case.

Hodge is up for an ESPY in the category of Best Female College Athlete. Her competition is stiffthough. Other finalists for the award are Connecticut basketball players Maya Moore and Tina Charles and UCLA softball stud Megan Langenfeld. It’s important to note that Hodge and Moore shared the Honda-Broderick Cup. Since the ESPYs are decided by the fans’ vote, there won’t be any ties this time around.

Hodge can’t win without your help, so go and vote! You can go here to make your selection (we provide the link so you can bypass the 24 pages of LeBron Watch). And make sure to watch the ESPYs to see if she wins. It can be seen live on ESPN at 9pm ET on Wednesday, July 14.
