Shnaka Walker, Saint Augustine’s: NCAA DII Athlete Hall of Fame, Class of 2018

Shnaka Walker did a little bit of everything at Saint Augustine’s. A nine-time All-American (four indoor, five outdoor), Walker did damage in the long jump, triple jump, high jump and 4×100 relay during her time with the Falcons. However, she is best remembered for her showings in the long jump.

Walker won three NCAA Division II long jump national titles in three-consecutive seasons for the Falcons. She started by picking up the 1997 indoor long jump title with a mark of 6.00m (19-8¼). She then captured outdoor titles in 1998 (6.17m/20-3) and 1999 (6.08m/19-11½), becoming just the third woman to win back-to-back NCAA Division II outdoor long jump titles.

Walker was named the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association Most Valuable Athlete during the 1998 indoor season after winning conference titles in the long jump, triple jump and high jump.
