One of the most-distinguished athletes hailing from the state, this 1984 Santa Fe High graduate – who was an All-American in basketball and an All-State selection in soccer — went on to become a 10-time All-American in track & field at the University of Arizona, and was the 1989 NCAA national champion during the indoor season (shot put) and outdoor season (shot put and discus). She was a member of the 1991 and ’93 USA team that competed at the World Track & Field championships those years, and a member of the USA’s 1992 Olympic team in Barcelona. She also is a two-time silver-medalist in the World Weightlifting Championships and the USA weightlifting champion from 1991-94, inducted into the USA Weightlifting Hall of Fame in 2012 and a 1996 inductee of the University of Arizona Sports Hall of Fame. Today, Garrett is the strength coach at the University of New Mexico.
