Amy Skieresz Inducted into USTFCCCA Collegiate Athlete Hall of Fame


TUCSON, Ariz. – The USTFCCCA inducted Arizona Cross Country and Track & Field Alumni Amy Skieresz to the USTFCCCA Collegiate Athlete Hall of Fame on Friday.
 
Skieresz, a Class of 2024 Hall of Fame inductee, is one of the most decorated runners in Arizona program history. She is a 10-time All-American in both track and field and cross country. Skieresz won an astounding seven national championships during her Arizona career in cross country, indoor track and field, and outdoor track and field.
 
In the 1996-97 season, Skieresz became the first woman in Division I history to win four national championships in the same year as she won the cross country championship, indoor 5000m, outdoor 5000m, and outdoor 10,000m. In the following season of 1997-98, she repeated in the indoor 5000m, outdoor 5000m, and outdoor 10,000m. Her cross country title in 1996 was the first for any Arizona female athlete. In 1997 and 1998, she was named the NCAA Indoor and Outdoor Track and Field Athlete of the Year.
 
Skieresz won four straight individual cross country conference championships from 1995-98. She was also named the conference athlete of the year in those four seasons. In track and field, she added another three conference championship titles to her career total and was named the conference track athlete of the year in 1997 and 1998. She still holds school records in the indoor 5000m, outdoor 10,000m, freshman 3000m, and freshman 5000m. In 2004, she was inducted into the Arizona Athletics Sports Hall of Fame.
