The Pac-12 Woman of the Year Award honors graduating student-athletes who have distinguished themselves throughout their collegiate careers in the areas of academic achievement, athletics excellence, community service and leadership.

“Valarie earning Pac-12 Woman of the Year honor is a great testament to all she has accomplished during her time at Stanford and a true reflection of who she is as a student-athlete and a person,” said CHRIS MILTENBERG, Stanford’s The Franklin P. Johnson Director of Track & Field. “She has been a key driver in all the great momentum our team has built throughout her Stanford career and her impact will continue to be felt for years to come after she has graduated.”

Allman, who is a candidate for the NCAA Woman of the Year award, earned her bachelor’s degree in product design. She completed her Stanford career as a six-time All-America selection, a two-time Pac-12 Discus Champion and the school record-holder in the 20-pound weight throw.

Allman is the third Stanford student-athlete to be named the Pac-12 Woman of the Year since the award was established in 2006. Women’s basketball’s CHINEY OGWUMIKE was honored in 2014 and cross country/track and field’s ARIANNA LAMBIE was honored in 2008.
