Laura Allen left Smith Stadium in a state of shock Saturday night.

The Richmond senior was named Western’s 2002 Homecoming queen during halftime of the Western vs. Indiana State football game.

“I was very, very surprised,” she said. “I did not think I would win. I love Western. It was great to be able to represent WKU.”

Allen, a biology major, was sponsored by Western’s Spirit Masters. She is also a member of Alpha Omicron Pi sorority.

First runner-up was Tompkinsville senior Allison Carter. She is a pre-med major and was sponsored by Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity.

Franklin junior Tabitha Briggs was second runner-up. Briggs is a public relations major sponsored by the National Pan-Hellenic Council.
