1997 NAU Athletics Hall of Fame Class

Art Menchaca

(Cross Country/Track and Field, 1978-80) 

Art Menchaca turned in one of the most heroic efforts in NAU track and field history in 1980.  After being sidelined with a stress fracture all season, the defending Big Sky champ in the 3,000-meter steeplechase and 5,000 meters finished second in the 5,000 and 10,000 helping NAU to a second straight conference title.  In 1978, he scored 56 points for another Lumberjack championship team.  Menchaca finished fifth in the 1979 Big Sky cross country meet.
