Our second annual Webfoot Awards are nearing to a close, and we have just a couple more awards to hand out. And since Oregon is definitely a track school, you had to know that a track athlete would win Best Female Athlete.
Deajah Stevens takes home that honor this year after earning 45 percent of the vote alongside fellow candidates Jillian Alleyne, Cheridan Hawkins and Caroline Inglis.
Last month, Stevens delivered a historic performance on the track when she became the first woman in school history to earn a spot on the US Olympic team, placing second overall in the women’s 200 meter final.
Stevens ran the 200 in 22.30 seconds, outrunning former Duck Jenna Prandini (who squeaked onto the team by 0.01 seconds) and Allyson Felix, arguably the most dominant female American sprinter.
Here is a highlight of Stevens’ race in the 200 finals during the Olympic Trials.
Here is how the voting went down in this year’s Webfoot Awards for Best Female Athlete.
Be sure to come back tomorrow as we hand out the Best Team award, the final one of this year’s Webfoot Awards.
