Meet Tristyn Rutledge, an Asian beauty we met during our search for the Girls of the Big 12 issue. When we met the all-natural brunette at Kansas State, we were awestruck by her athletic figure. Tristyn admits her toned body is due to her years of running track. The mass communications major began running competitively in high school and stays fit today by running two miles every day. Even though our Coed of the Month for December 2002 is used to racing, she wasn’t expecting her heart to race the way it did when Playboy called her to let her know about her brand-new title. “I'll try anything once,” giggles Miss Rutledge.
