The US Track & Field and Cross Country Association awards concluded on Thursday night with a wonderful recognition of star Kentucky senior Abby Steiner. They recognized Steiner with The Bowerman award — an honor given to most outstanding woman in track and field.
She’s the third Kentucky Wildcat to be a finalist for the award (Kendra Harrison, 2015 & Sydney McLaughlin, 2018) but the first in program history to bring home the hardware.

There isn’t much Steiner hasn’t done. She holds numerous records, is an excellent student in the classroom and has been an inspiration for younger athletes who look up to her.
Earlier this summer Steiner announced her signing with PUMA as she turned professional. She’ll forever be a Kentucky Athletics legend but also leaves behind so many memories of just how great of a person she is. Steiner is beloved by coaches, teammates, fans and media members. She’s truly one of a kind.
