PARK RIDGE, Ill. - When DeDee Nathan was a senior at Indiana University in 1990, several of her track and field competitors from across the country often greeted her with a common question.

Nathan's career was not marred by injuries prompting medical redshirts and a sixth year of eligibility, which would ultimately lengthen her stay in Bloomington. In fact, Nathan spent just four years at Indiana, but was so competitive from the onset of her college career, several followers believed she had been there much longer than she actually had.
