The ESPY awards may have engulfed your Twitter feed tonight, but did you know there was a CNY connection?

Kara Cannizzaro was nominated for an ESPY award, for Best Female College Athlete.

That award was ultimately awarded to Britney Griner of Baylor Basketball, but moments after that moment passed, Cannizzaro was shown on national television.

ESPN showed her, and fellow North Carolina athlete Nicole Bunn honoring UNC for the Capital One Cup.

Cannizzaro helped lead the Tar Heels to the National Championship in May, scoring four goals in the title game victory over Maryland.
