Ashley Henderson Finishes in Sixth Place in the 200 Meter Dash
June 9, 2018
Of course I'm disappointed with my placement, but ultimately I'm more proud with myself because of how far I've come."
Although Henderson had to face a headwind of 2.3 meters per second, the rain did let up minutes before the 200 began. The track was still extremely wet though.
Henderson leaves San Diego State as a 12-time All-American (a nine-time First-Team All-American) and won a school record 14 Mountain West Championships. She also has four school records and was the Mountain West's Most Outstanding Performer at the last five conference championships, a conference record. Henderson will now be joining the professional ranks with hopes of competing at the 2020 Summer Olympics.
THE NOTE I
Henderson earned the Aztecs three points with her sixth place finish. San Diego State has now earned points in seven of the past eight NCAA Outdoor Championships.
THE NOTE II
Despite the wet conditions, 12,998 fans came out to watch the Championships. The attendance for Thursday's semi-finals was 9,702.
