A top shot put and discus combination thrower, Dumble has been an all-around athlete throughout her athletic life. She was a four-time High School All-America selection, and her team won the California state title twice in her time at Bakersfield. She also played volleyball and basketball and was a starter on the nation's top-ranked club high school volleyball team in 1988, that was a 3-time state champion... earned her degree in history at UCLA, then followed with a social studies teaching credential from Cal State Northridge. Dumble moved to Gainesville in August 1998, to be with her coach, John Frazier, and start a student teaching assignment at Bell High School... has since relocated to Mesa, Ariz., where Frazier now coaches. Says she's going to wait on teaching as a career: "I don't know if I even want to teach. I think I'd like to become a college coach instead."
