Cindy Wyatt may very well be one of the strongest two-sport athletes in the history of Western New York.

Cindy Wyatt was born in Buffalo on March 31, 1944 and graduated from Williamsville High School. She was one of the first women in the United States to receive an athletic scholarship when she accepted the offer from the University of Hawaii to become a member of one of the best track and field teams in the college ranks in 1961.

Cindy's early career focused on track and field where she excelled at both the shot put and discus. As a teenager, she was a member of six All-America track & field teams (1958-59, 1961-63), and set four national age group records in shot put.
