SCOTTSDALE, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Fiesta Bowl has a new Queen.

Officials crowned 20-year-old Allison Schannep as the 2013-2014 Fiesta Bowl Queen Wednesday at a private event at the Arizona Biltmore Grand Ballroom.

The four Fiesta Bowl finalists all attend The University of Arizona.

Schannep is a UA senior in the Honors College, majoring in political science, philosophy, economics and law. She is a member of Chi Omega sorority, Mortar Board National College Senior Honor Society, Golden Key International Honor Society and Navigators, a faith-based club on campus.

She will graduate with an undergraduate degree in May. She plans to earn a Master's Degree in philosophy at the UA, then attend law school.

Schannep's first appearance as "Queen" will be at the Wells Fargo Fiesta Bowl Million Dollar Hole-in-One Finals at the Arizona Biltmore Golf Club this weekend. Thousands of golfers of all skill levels aim for a hole-in-one on a 125-yard hole. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Fiesta Bowl Charities.

Schannep's Court members include Rebecca Durazo, Hannah Keogh and Lissette Ruiz-Ibarra.
