San Diego State's Shanieka Thomas won the triple jump at the 2014 NCAA Track and Field Championships Saturday in Albuquerque, N.M. It was the second career NCAA title (also 2013 outdoor triple jump) for Thomas and the first indoor championship.

It is the sixth individual national title for the Aztecs. An SDSU athlete has now won an individual title at three of the past four NCAA Championships (also Whitney Ashley in 2012 outdoor discus throw and Thomas in 2013 outdoor triple jump).

Thomas, who also was a runner-up at the 2013 indoor meet and 2012 outdoor meet in the triple jump, beat out 15 other entrants with a best of 45 feet, 10 inches (13.97m). The mark, which came on her sixth and final attempt, was more than a foot and a half farther than the runner-up Marshay Ryan of Auburn (44-00.50 (13.42m)). In fact, Thomas would have won the NCAA title in four of her five jumps (she passed on her third attempt).

Thomas, who was seeded first heading into the event with a mark of 45-03.00 (13.79m), is now a three-time first-team indoor USTFCCCA All-American (2012-14) and one-time indoor USTFCCCA All-American (2011). Thomas was one of 10 on the preseason list for The Bowerman Trophy (top collegian).

Allison Reaser also competed at the NCAA Championships, taking 15th in the pentathlon with 3,996 points. It was the second-highest total of her career for Reaser, who has won six multi-event titles (2011-13 indoor pentathlon, 2011-13 outdoor heptathlon) at the MW Championships over the past three-plus years.

Reaser started the day by taking fifth in the 60-meter hurdles in 8.32 seconds. Next up was the high jump, where she was 16th with a mark of 5-02.25 (1.58m). In the shot put, Reaser came in 14th at 36-05.00 (11.10m). Next up was the long jump, where Reaser had the 11th-best performance with a leap if 19-02.75 (5.86m). The pentathlon ended with the 800, where she came in eighth in an indoor personal record of 2:20.37.

Thomas' 10 points gave San Diego State a tie for 19th place out of 58 scoring teams, which was the team's best-ever indoor finish. The Aztecs have now finished in the top 10 in each of the past two NCAA indoor meets and in four NCAA meets overall (2013-14 indoor, 2012-13 outdoor). Oregon won the meet with 44 points, edging Texas (43.5), Florida (40.5) and Georgia (40.5).

The rest of the team began their outdoor campaign Saturday at the UCSD Collegiate Challenge in nearby La Jolla. Results are listed below.
