2011 Inductees

Jennifer Lemke - Track and Field

Jennifer Lemke was a shot-put specialist from Sultan High School, where she still holds the school record in the shot and is ninth best in the discus. Lemke was a member of WVC’s 1980 and 1981 track and field teams. In her freshman year, she broke the school record in the shot-put five times, throwing 42’11” at the regional meet and placing third at state with a mark of 42’3,” which helped her team to a third-place finish.

As a sophomore, she improved upon her record-breaking throws on her way to taking first place at the state meet at Husky Stadium with a 48’5” toss, just missing her national record of 48’6 ½” set earlier in the year.

Lemke continued her athletic career at Arizona State University, where she placed eighth and sixth in the NCAA meets. She still holds the 10th best outdoor mark in the shot-put at ASU.

Her chance to make the Olympic team was dashed when she sustained a serious ankle injury one week before the Olympic qualifying meet.

As a sophomore he averaged 14.9 points, and once again the Knights finished third in the league and then earned the school’s second appearance at the Northwest Community College Championship Basketball Tournament.

After finishing at Wenatchee, he played two years at Whitworth College.
