NEW YORK (AP) - Cal’s Jana Juricova has won the Honda Sports Award as the nation’s top college women’s tennis player.

The native of Slovakia won this year’s NCAA singles title, going 36-4 in her junior season.

The other finalists were Lauren Embree of Florida, Maria Sanchez of Southern Cal and Stacey Tan of Stanford. The winner is determined by balloting among 1,000 NCAA member schools.

As one of the Honda winners in 12 sports, Juricova is eligible for Collegiate Female Athlete of the Year honors, which will be awarded June 27 in New York.
