The eleven-time national champion was also a two-time Olympian, competing in the l972 and l976 Olympic Games.

Jane's heptathlon PR, set back in 1984, still ranks as the 29th highest point total recorded in the history of the event. She remains the world's 12th best performer (and best American other than JJK).

Jane won the inaugural Mt. SAC heptathlon in 1981. Her score continues to make her the second highest performer in meet history, again behind only JJK.

Jane competed in a number of individual events in the years before the heptathlon was contested at Mt. SAC, posting winning marks in the long jump in 1975 and 1979.

She broke the American record in the heptathlon six times, and won nine national championships in the pentathlon and heptathlon. Jane also competed at the 1972 and 1976 Olympics.
