Robin Marks HOF

She wound up finishing second that year. Robin earned All-American honors both in 1981 and 1982 by having a top eight finish at the national championships those years. Robin also won the 400-meter hurdles at the Western Collegiate Athletic Association Conference Championships in 1981 and 1982. Robin was very active on The University of Arizona campus. She was crowned Fiesta Bowl Queen in 1984 and led students in rallies to convince then Universiy President Henry Koffler to improve the treatment of African-American students. At the time of her induction, Robin held school records in the indoor 50 meter and 500 yard dash and she is still listed as a top-10 performer in the 200 meter, 400 meter, 100 meter high hurdles, 400 meter hurdles and the 4x400 meter relay.
