Carrie Pietig, '91, (graduated in 1987 from Centralia High School, Wash. now lives in Taylor, Texas) has won more individual national championships (three) than any woman, to date, in Willamette history. As a junior in 1990, she won the NAIA discus and shot put titles. Pietig followed that up by winning the 1991 NAIA discus crown as a senior and placed second in the shot put. Her NAIA-winning discuss throw of 167-4 in 1990 set an NAIA record at the time. That mark, along with her 1990 national champion shot put toss (48-11) is a Willamette school record. Pietig was a three-time Northwest Conference shot put champion and two-time NWC discus title winner. She held the NAIA District II records in the shot put (48-1) and discus (148-8) until the meet was discontinued in 1995. The four-time NAIA All-American helped the women's track & field team place 10th at nationals in 1991 and 11th in 1990. Pietig also played volleyball as a freshman.
