Track and Field brings SDSU championship total to 11

sdsu track and field

The SDSU Track and Field team won the MW Indoor Championships in February, but weren’t satisfied with just one trophy.

The San Diego State track and field team won the Mountain West Indoor Championships in February, but that wasn’t enough.

The Aztecs wanted more.

As a school, San Diego State won its tenth conference championship on Friday when the softball team defeated UNLV, but that also wasn’t enough.

Once again, the Aztecs wanted more.

The track and field team won the MW Outdoor Championships on Saturday, securing the 11th conference championship for San Diego State during the 2012-13 academic school year.

As if raising another trophy wasn’t enough, the Aztecs earned some conference honors as well. Head coach Shelia Burrell was named the Women’s Coach of the Year, and junior Allison Reaser was named the meet’s Most Outstanding Performer.

Freshman LaQuisha Jackson won the 100 meters and 200 meters. Other individual winners included Reaser (100 hurdles), senior Deyna Roberson (400 hurdles) and junior ShaniekaThomas (triple jump). Jackson, Roberson, Thomas and junior Maderia Toatley also placed first in the 4×400-meter relay.

Go Aztecs!

Former San Diego State women’s soccer player and ‘Aztec For Life’ Megan Jurado was selected to the Philippine National Team last week. The Malditas team features 26 women and will compete to qualify for the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

The team will spend the next three weeks preparing for the AFC Women’s Asian Cup qualifiers in Dhaka, Bangladesh, held from May 21-25. Teams will compete for a chance to qualify for the 2014 AFC Women’s Asian Cup, where five teams can then advance to the 2015 Women’s World Cup in Canada.

Malditas is in Group B in the AFC Women’s Asian Cup qualifier and will face Iran on May 21, Thailand on May 23, and Bangladesh on May 25. The winner of the group will move on to the main draw of the AFC Women’s Asian Cup. The Malditas team is looking to become the first-ever Philippine team to qualify for a Women’s World Cup.

Jurado completed her career this past fall by leading her team to a 21-2-1 record (7-0 MW) and helping it win the Mountain West regular-season and tournament championships. In arguably the best season in school history, the Aztecs advanced to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tournament. Jurado led the team in goals (15), assists (9) and points (39) and was named the MW Offensive Player-of-the-Year and an All-American selection.

Congratulations to Megan!
