On Friday night, Wallace was named Augusta Christian Schools' homecoming queen.
"It was great, incredible," said Wallace, 17, after being named for the honor at Augusta Christian's football game against Ben Lippin. "It would have been great if we could have split the crown in three because (the runner-ups) are both my best friends."
Wallace, who is treasurer of her senior class and yearbook editor, and plays on the varsity softball team and on a traveling softball team, faced Hannah Hoover, 17, and Ashleigh King, 18, for the crown.
Wallace was escorted by her father, David. She said she enjoys spending time with her family and friends.
Hoover, who was escorted by her father, Robert, said it was like a dream come true just to be named to the court. Her friend and competitor, King, agreed.
"It's just an honor," said King, who was escorted by her father, David. "I didn't care who won because we're all best friends."
Other homecoming representatives were: seventh-grader Hannah Reimer, escorted by her cousin, Benjamin Reimer; eighth-grader Melany Lopez, escorted by her father, Dr. Juan Lopez; eighth-grader Morgan Vernoy, escorted by her father, Robert Vernoy; ninth-grader Jennifer Freeman, escorted by her father, Bill Freeman; 10th-grader Lynlee Satcher, escorted by her father, Buddy Satcher; and 11th-grader Jaclyn Fields, escorted by her father, James Fields.
