The U.S. Women’s National Team was honored at Glamour‘s Women of the Year Awards gala in New York City on Monday night, adding to the list of accolades the team has garnered after winning the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup this past summer.

The United States defeated Japan, 5-2, to win its third Women’s World Cup.

Each year, Glamour announces its Women of the Year Awards in which the magazine recognizes and celebrates women and their accomplishments and achievement in everything from science to entertainment to sports. This year, the magazine celebrated the 25th anniversary of the awards with the Mayor of New York City officially declaring the date Women of the Year Day.

In addition to the USWNT, this year’s honorees included Reese Witherspoon, Amy Schumer, Misty Copeland, Caitlyn Jenner, Victoria Beckham, Elizabeth Holmes, and Cecile Richards. More from the evening can be found here.

Several members of the USWNT were in attendance, and of course, it was all documented on social media (#GlamourWOTY25).
