When veteran running back Willis McGahee was released last week, the Denver Broncos made a clear statement.

They like their young running backs.

‘Aztec For Life’ Ronnie Hillman is one of those young backs, and he is expected to see an increased role in 2013. The second-year pro Hillman and rookie Montee Ball have seen the most action in team activities so far this offseason, and both are fiercely competing for the starting job.

Hillman appeared on NFL Total Access yesterday and talked about the competition for the starting job, the pressure of playing with future Hall of Famer Peyton Manning, and his goals of having a career similar to those of San Diego legends Marshall Faulk and LaDainian Tomlinson.

San Diego State celebrates after beating New Mexico to win the 2013 Mountain West Tournament.

9 was impressive. 10 was amazing. 11 was borderline absurd.

But 12?

12 conference championships is just not fair.

San Diego State continued its winning ways on Sunday as the baseball team beat No. 13 New Mexico to claim the school’s 12th conference championship in the 2012-13 school year. The Aztecs beat the Lobos 9-4 to win the 2013 Mountain West Tournament championship.

SDSU was led by freshmen standout Ty France, who was named the conference tournament MVP for his stellar play. In six tournament games, France went 16-21 with two home runs, eight RBI and nine runs. His 16 hits were a conference tournament record.

The Aztecs now advance to the NCAA Regional in Los Angles where they will face No. 10 UCLA on Friday, May 31.

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.
