    Emma is nominated again for the Bowerman award, presented to the top men's and women's ncaa track athlete. This is not a slam dunk.

    The top competitors are NCAA record holders. :/
    Emma didn't shoot for a record, which might come back to bite her in the competition for this award..

    Clemson’s Brianna Rollins and Stanford’s Kori Carter left the NCAA championships with collegiate records in the 100 and 400 hurdles, respectively, while reigning Bowerman winner Kimberlyn Duncan from LSU tied the all-time 200 meters mark in her historic three-peat win. Arizona’s Brigetta Barrett and Oklahoma’s Tia Brooks also neared the collegiate records in their respective events: the high jump and shot put.

    4 of 10 are in the P12 conference

    There's a good chance that both winners come from the Pac-12
