Amber James, Wheaton (Ill.): NCAA DIII Athlete Hall of Fame, Class of 2017

There is dominant. Then there is Amber James. From 2001 to 2004, James won 17 NCAA titles as a member of the Wheaton College track & field team – 11 of those via individual events. Nearly half of those titles (8) came in the 400m, where James swept the NCAA crowns from the moment she stepped on the track as a freshman until stepped off as a senior. James is one of only two women to win four individual event titles in a row indoors and one of five women to do so outdoors. James added six more titles to her haul in relay events (five in the 4×400m, one in the 4×100m) and the last three came in the outdoor 200m, which she won from 2002 to 2004. With her success at the NCAA level, all the Wheaton Lyons had to do was climb on her shoulders and let her carry them to victory. Wheaton completed the indoor-outdoor team title sweep from 2001 to 2003. When it comes to the NCAA Division III record books, James still holds the divisional record in the indoor 400m at 54.48 and currently sits third on the outdoor chart (53.58) in the same event. James also owns the 4th fastest mark in NCAA Division III history over 200m outdoors (23.73w).
