Idaho’s first and only female NCAA track & field champion, Katja Schreiber dominated not just at the conference level, but also at the national level. After taking fourth at the 2000 NCAA Track & Field Championships in the discus throw, Schreiber stormed back in 2001 and launched the discus a school-record 197 feet, 10 inches to win the event by a 13-foot margin. The two-time All-American’s 10 points at the 2001 NCAA meet helped give Idaho a 16th-place finish the highest ever for any Idaho track & field team. Schreiber’s school-record throw remains today, 15 feet, 2 inches longer than the second-best throw in school history. Schreiber also sits at fifth all-time in the shot put, with a personal best of 49-3 in the event.
