“It’s really a privilege for us to be honored,” said All-American and national champion Amy Menlove. “I highly respect BYU as a school and it’s exciting to represent the school you love. The fact that it’s taking the time to recognize our achievements is very special and we all are very grateful.”

Those athletes receiving recognition include true freshman 800-meter national champion Lacey Cramer, pentathlon national champion Amy Menlove, sophomore standout Katie Palmer, Angela Wagner and Nachelle Stewart.
