Dani Bunch: Big Ten Female Athlete of the Year

Purdue Athletics

Bunch is the 6th Purdue woman to be named the conference’s Female Athlete of the Year.

Though Raheem Mostert was not selected for the B1G's Male Athlete of the Year, Dani Bunch was still able to rack up the award on the female side. Bunch is the first Purdue Athlete to win the award since David Boudia won it in 2011, and the first female athlete since golfer Maria Hernandez won in 2009. Bunch is also the first Purdue athlete to earn the award for Track and Field.

During her last season, the 5th year senior earned 3 First Team All-American honors, finishing 3rd in weight throw and 5th in both indoor and outdoor shot put. In addition to these rewards, Bunch also earned Big Ten Field Athlete of the Year for both indoor and outdoor seasons, as well as Athlete of the Championships during the outdoor season.

Dani Bunch led the Purdue team during the indoor season, earning all 10 points for Purdue to help them finish 19th in the country, along with helping the team finish 47th during the outdoor season.

Of the 6 Purdue Female Athletes to win the award, Bunch and Hernandez are the only ones who were not part of the basketball program.

Congratulations to Dani Bunch!
