LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – Louisville's own Briana Lathon was crowned the 2015 Kentucky Derby Festival Queen with the spin of a wheel Friday night.

The Centre College senior, who is majoring in politics, plans to attend law school upon graduation – but Friday night she was selected for a different honor.

The Derby Festival Princesses gathered at the Galt House Hotel for the traditional wheel spin to determine who would be the Derby Festival Queen.

Other princesses this year include Kathryn Ashby, a U of L student; Madison Evans, a Georgetown College student; Kyle Hornback, a U of L student; and Sophie Knight, another U of L student.

Members of the Royal Court represent the Festival at a variety of events leading up to Derby, they were selected from more than 100 young women who applied last fall.
