ESPYS 2019 Complete Winners List: US Women’s National Soccer Team Named Best Team

Tracy Morgan hosts the annual sports awards show

US Womens National Soccer Team ESPYS Awards

Just days after their second straight World Cup victory, the U.S. women’s national soccer team won Best Team at the 2019 ESPYS Awards hosted by Tracy Morgan on Wednesday night.

Other winners included Zion Williamson (Best College Athlete), soccer star Alex Morgan (Best Female Athlete), and Giannis Antetokounmpo (Best NBA Player, Best Male Athlete).

Though the night’s nominees included luminaries like Serena Williams (who won for Best Female Tennis Player) and Kevin Durant, the biggest stars of the show were members of the women’s national soccer team, who arrived in L.A. from their World Cup Finals victory parade in New York City earlier Wednesday.

Among other highlights, the St. Louis Blues’ Stanley Cup victory nabbed the team Best Comeback. And for the first time ever, all the nominees for Best Male Athlete — Patrick Mahomes, Mookie Betts, Antetokounmpo and Brooks Koepka — were rookies to the category.
