      Breanna Stewart has been impressing us all in Central New York for years.

      She's not going to stop anytime soon, it seems.

      On the heels of winning back to back national titles for the UConn Womens Basketball team, Stewart was honored by ESPN on Wednesday night with an "ESPY" Award.

      Her ESPY comes in the category of Best Female College Athlete, the award was not shown on the actual ESPY broadcast but rather given to her on the red carpet beforehand.

      Stewart was also nominated for two other fantastic awards, Best Female Overall Athlete and Best Womens team.

      There was another Central New York connection too, with Lafayette grad Lyle Thompson being nominated for Best Male College Athlete, that award went to Creighton's Doug McDermott.
