1998


A native of Evanston, Ill., Nat Page was one of the most dominant high jumpers in Big Eight Conference history. He won four league titles during his career, one indoors and three outdoors, and also won four all-American awards in the event. Page, whose two sisters also competed at MU, was the NCAA outdoor champion in 1979. He placed third outdoors in 1976, and was second and fourth, respectively, indoors in 1977 and '79. His best jump of 7-feet, 5-1/2 inches was the second best mark in the history of the Big Eight Conference. Page qualifed for the U.S. Olympic team in 1980, but did not compete due to the U.S. boycott of the Moscow games. He switched events and became one of the world's top 400-meter intermediate hurdlers, competing on the international track circuit well into the 1990s. He now is an accomplished track coach in the Atlanta, Ga., area.
