Diving, 1979-82

Hall of Fame Class:

The most prolific diver in MU history, the Cedar Rapids, Iowa native was a force on the conference and national level from 1979-82. Was a three-time all-American, and claimed four different Big Eight individual championships. Made a splash, literally, as a freshman, when she won the Big Eight championship and earned all-American honors in the one-meter event in 1979. Buchheister swept the Big Eight one-meter and three-meter competition in 1981, and also won all-American honors at three-meters that same year. She closed out her career by winning the Big Eight three-meter competition, and was an all-American at one meter in 1982. She set Big Eight records in 1979 and 1981 at one meter, which have since been broken, but she still holds MU records at one meter (444.75) and three-meters (469.43), both set in 1980. Currently resides in Kailua, Hawaii.
