Christine Peng-Peng Lee was scrolling through Twitter when she found out she won co-Pac-12 Woman of the Year.
“I saw that I had a mention so I started reading it and I started kind of freaking out,” Lee said. “I was shocked.”
The former UCLA gymnast won this year’s award alongside Stanford track and field’s Valarie Allman. She is only the second Bruin ever to earn the recognition, with fellow Canadian Kate Richardson winning in 2006.
“Everything just keeps happening,” Lee said. “All these awards keep coming in and I couldn’t be happier. I couldn’t have asked for a better way to end.”
