Janiga, a senior psychology major and a six-time All-American, was selected for the award based on her performance in the gym and accomplishments in the classroom. Janiga, a psychology major, has a cumulative grade-point average of 3.79.
Janiga has been an all-around standout since her freshman year in 2007. Over the past week, she earned her fourth Pac-10 individual championship, capturing the floor exercise title and finishing second in the all-around, which she won in 2009. In addition, Janiga received her fourth All-Pac-10 first-team honor.
