Kate Douglass named AAU James E. Sullivan Award semifinalist

Kate Douglass

Pelham native Kate Douglass was named a semifinalist for the 93rd annual AAU James E. Sullivan Award.

The annual award is presented to the most outstanding U.S. athletes at the collegiate or Olympic level. It focuses on the qualities of leadership, citizenship, character and sportsmanship of the athletes.

Douglass was nominated for the honor after a stellar career with the Cavaliers at the University of Virginia. At her final competition with the Cavaliers in March, Douglass earned seven new NCAA titles. She led the Cavaliers with three individual wins in the 200-yard individual medley, 100-yard butterfly and 200-yard breaststroke. Douglass set new American, NCAA and U.S. Open records in all three events she won. 

Douglass is one of 25 athletes chosen as semifinalists and the only female swimmer. Six of them will become finalists for the award. 

Daily public voting is open until next Wednesday at midnight. Vote for Douglass here.
