Kristin (Asp) Schoffman helped bring Jackrabbit distance running to prominence in the 1980s, earning the distinction of joining the 55-member Jackrabbit Sports Hall of Fame in the fall of 2010.
Schoffman earned All-America honors a combined 10 times between cross country and track and field, including winning an NCAA Division individual national title in the 3,000-meter run at the 1984 outdoor nationals. A native of Lamberton, Minn., Schoffman also earned All-America honors three times in the 5,000 meters outdoors, placing third in 1982, fourth in 1983 and second in 1984, while adding a fifth-place finish in the 3,000-meter run at the 1985 Divison II Indoor Track and Field Championships. The North Central Conference's all-time record holder in the indoor 3,000-meter run (9:42.46), Schoffman won seven conference track titles in the distance events, including three times in the 3,000 meters outdoors (1982, 1983, 1984), and was a key member of the Jackrabbits' NCC indoor track and field championship teams in 1982 and 1983.
In cross country, Schoffman became the first female runner to win three consecutive North Central Conference individual titles. Her quest for a fourth straight title came up just short as she finished second in the 1984 championships in Vermillion. She went on to claim All-America four times in cross country, starting with a third-place individual as a freshman in 1981. Schoffman added a sixth-place finish in 1983, along with eighth-place efforts in 1982 and 1984.
As a team, SDSU claimed the NCAA Division II championship in 1981 and finished as runner-up a year later. The Jackrabbits also claimed NCC team titles in 1981, 1982 and 1984
A 1986 graduate of SDSU, Schoffman earned a degree in nutrition and food science.
