    2009 Inductee



    Part of a team that finished in the top-10 in the nation in two-straight seasons -- including a program-best sixth at the NCAA Championships in 2000 -- Amy Balcerzak Field owns three Northwestern individual records (100, 200 breaststroke and 200 individual medley) and two relay (200, 400 medley) school records. She also was a member of the current pool-record-holding 200 medley relay.

    Balcerzak wasted no time in establishing herself as Northwestern's most prolific breaststroker. As a freshman, she earned four All-America cuts, capturing 20 such distinctions in her four-year career. She was a four-time All-American in both breaststroke distances, and a three-time honoree in the 200 IM. Her breaststroke effort contributed to four-consecutive All-America awards for both the 2000 and 400 medley relays from 1997-2000.

    Balcerzak was a four-time CSCAA All-Academic honoree and a three-time Academic All-Big Ten award winner. She owns six Big Ten Championships and was a three-time All-Big Ten award recipient.
