Abby Wambach takes top US Soccer honor...again

Rochester's Abby Wambach has been named "Female Athlete of the Year" by U.S. Soccer.

She joins forward Jozy Altidore of the U.S. Men's National Team in taking the top honors.

Votes from soccer fans count for 50 percent -- and votes from coaches and sports reporters count for the other half -- in determining the winners.

Wambach has now claimed this honor half-a-dozen times.
