Elected into the FSU Hall of Fame in 1989
During her four years at Florida State (1981-1984), Randy Givens rewrote the record books in women's track and field. She was a star on a Florida State women's track team that never finished worse than third at the National Championships during her career. By her junior year she had established herself as an international class sprinter, winning numerous national titles and leading Florida State to 2nd in the 1983 NCAA Outdoor Meet. Givens topped this accomplishment in 1984 when she won NCAA titles in the Champion 400 meter and mile relay teams. Her efforts led Florida State to its first National Championship in women's track and field. In addition to her outstanding FSU career, Givens also brought honor to the University when she represented the United States at the 1984 Olympic Games. She was also awarded the prestigious Broderick Award, annually given to the nation's top female amateur athlete.
