Jan. 21, 2017
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - Micha Auzenne broke her own San Diego State record in the 60-meter hurdles and tied her mark in the 60-meter dash to pace the San Diego State track and field team on the final day of the Cherry & Silver Invitational Saturday in Albuquerque, N.M.
Auzenne first broke her record in the 60 hurdles, taking second in the finals with a time of 8.11 seconds. The time eclipsed her previous best of 8.18, set last year at the MW Championships and earlier in the day in the semifinals.
Later in the open 60, Auzenne tied her school record with a clocking of 7.32 in the finals to win the event. Her previous 7.32 also came at the MW Championships last year. Auzenne also won the semifinals of the 60 in 7.38.
Ashley Henderson, meanwhile, came in second in the 60 in 7.40 after running a 7.46 in a semifinal heat.
Andrenette Knight also clocked a pair of all-time top-10 times in Aztec history in the 400 and the 60 hurdles. Her time of 55.69 in the 400 was the 10th fastest in SDSU indoor history, while her 8.51 in the semifinals of the 60 hurdles tied for the 10th fastest.
Tyra Lea finished ahead of Knight in the 400, taking fifth in 55.64, just behind her collegiate-best time of 55.50.
Other top-10 showings for San Diego State came from Simone Glenn (eighth, 7.62) and Rochene Smith (ninth, 7.62) in the 60 semifinals, Cindy Flores (eighth, 2:19.12) in the 800 and Je'Neal Ainsworth (ninth, 39 feet, 1 inch (11.91m)) in the triple jump.
