Monique Hacker '00
Induction Class of 2005

A native of St. Andrew, Jamaica, Monique Hacker competed in track and field at Binghamton from 1996-99. She earned her bachelor's degree in math and economics in 2000.

A gifted athlete who excelled in the jumps, sprints and hurdles, Hacker graduated as the most decorated Binghamton athlete — male or female — in the school's first 54 years.

She became the school's first female national champion, capturing five NCAA triple jump titles and claiming 12 Division III All-America and a two Division II All-America honors.

One day after joining the team as a freshman, she broke the school's indoor triple jump record by nearly five feet and qualified for her first national meet. There, she captured the first of her five championships and also placed seventh in the 55 hurdles. Hacker repeated her national title two months later outdoors and also took fourth in the 100 hurdles. She was then featured in Sports Illustrated on July 15, 1996.

As a sophomore, she qualified for the NCAA Indoor Championship in four different events. Outdoors in 1997, she captured her third triple jump title.

In her junior year, she won both the indoor and outdoor triple jump titles, setting NCAA meet records at each championship. Hacker was named NCAA Division III Female Indoor Track Athlete of the Year after singlehandedly accumulating enough team points for BU to finish third in the entire nation.

As a senior, Hacker competed as a Division II athlete and added two more All-America honors to her credit, including a national runnerup finish in her final collegiate performance.

In addition to her national honors, she earned 17 state titles and 12 conference crowns and was named BU's "Athlete of the Year" an unprecedented three times.
