Gladstone High School graduate Amanda Schumaker proved herself among the best female javelin throwers in the nation at the recent NCAA Division II Track and Field Championships in Pueblo, Colorado.

A junior at Western Oregon University, Schumaker earned All-American honors for a third consecutive year, placing third with a throw of 158-5. Schumaker placed sixth in the nation as a freshman, and she was eighth last year.

Seattle Pacific senior Brittany Aanstad (168-1) and Fort Hays State sophomore Makayla McPhail (160-9) were the only women with better throws than Schumaker at this year's nationals.

Earlier this year, Schumaker set a Western Oregon women's javelin school record, with a throw of 158-11 at the Long Beach Invitational.

Schumaker is a nursing major at Western Oregon.
