Best female athlete of all time
Sandra Anschuetz

Cross-country running is a solitary endeavor, in which pain takes a new meaning and the open, lonely road is a perfect metaphor. No one has ever done it better at Western than Sandra Anschuetz. Anschuetz competed in four National Championships, the first in 1982, before taking three years off and then coming back for the 1985, 1986 and 1987 Nationals. There may have been faster runners than Anschuetz at the university, but none maintained as much longevity as a prized runner. Anschuetz finished second at the 1982 national championship and followed with second, fifth and third place finishes at the 1985, 1986 and 1987 national meets respectively. She was one of the many cogs in Western's long line of cross-country success, which has carried home seven team national championships, including two individual golds, three individual silvers and four individual bronzes. Therefore, Sandra Anschuetz is our choice for the best female athlete in Western athletic history. -Jordan Bell
