Schuna, stafslien, Mcmullen End All-American Careers
Posted: Saturday, May 28, 2005
When the NCAA Division III outdoor track and field championships ended at Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa Saturday, it brought the curtain down on the brilliant careers of seniors John Schuna (Hudson), Jen Stafslien (Onalaska/West Salem) and Breanna McMullen (Fall Creek).
Between the three standouts, they captured 14 Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference championships and one NCAA national championship and received 26 NCAA All-American awards.
Schuna was an All-American four consecutive years in the shot put at both the indoor and outdoor NCAA championships. He won the national indoor shot put title his freshman year with a toss of 56-4. He won the WIAC outdoor shot put titles in both 2002 and 2004. Schuna also placed three times in the discus at the conference outdoor meet and once in the weight throw at the conference indoor championships. He earned All-American honors in the discus with an eighth place at the 2002 meet.
Stafslien and McMullen have been the preeminent hurdles in the WIAC since arriving at UWEC, McMullen in 2002 and Stafslien in 2003, after spending their freshman seasons at UW-La Crosse.. McMullen won the indoor 55-meter hurdle titles in 2002 and 2003 and Stafslien claimed that event the past two seasons. McMullen won the outdoor 100-meter hurdle gold in 2002 while Stafslien won it in 2003, 2004 and 2005. McMullen also claimed the outdoor 400-meter hurdle crowns in 2002 and 2003 and finished second this season after taking off the 2004 season.
Stafslien also competed in the long jump and triple jump, winning the conference indoor long jump events the past two years and placing second in both jump events at the outdoor meet this spring.
Stafslien earned All-American honors three times in the 100-meter hurdles, twice in the 55-meter hurdles, once in the outdoor long jump, twice in the indoor long jump, once in the indoor triple jump and once with the Blugold 1600-meter relay team. Her best national finish was a second in the long jump this week at Wartburg. She also had a third in the 2004 indoor long jump and a third in the 2004 outdoor 100-meter hurdles.
McMullen earned All-American honors seven times, twice each in the 55-meter hurdles, the 100-meter hurdles and the 400-meter hurdles and once as a member of the Blugold 1600-meter relay team. Her best finish was a fourth in the 2002 outdoor 100-meter hurdles.
