Orji was the only three-time female finalist in the history of the award, but she finally won it this year after a season where she scored 38 points between indoor and outdoor NCAAs (winning two TJ titles and the outdoor LJ).
Norman's year was full of super fast 400s as he broke the world indoor 400m record (44.52) and had the second fastest 4x400 relay carry in history (43.06), plus the collegiate outdoor record with 43.61 to win NCAAs.
