June 24, 2017 (Sacramento) - San Diego State track and field junior Simone Glenn competed in the first round of the 200 meters and alum Allison Reaser is ninth midway through the heptathlon on the third day of the USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships.
Her first senior national championship saw Glenn place 30th in the 200, clocking in at 23.93. The Atlanta native concluded her third season in the Scarlet and Black by earning a pair of All-American honors, picking up the accolade in the 4x100 (first team) and the 200 (honorable mention).
After four events in the heptathlon, Reaser, who is competing in her sixth straight U.S. outdoor championship meet, is in ninth place with 3,477 points. She placed eighth in the 100-meter hurdles (13.65) to pick up 1,028 points. The 2014 NCAA runner-up in the heptathlon then collected another 867 points when she leapt 5 feet, 5 inches (1.65m) in the high jump for 14th. Reaser was 11th in the shot put after launching it 39 feet, 4 inches (11.99m) to collect 660 points. The El Segundo, Calif., native then crossed the finish line of the 200 meters in 23.86 to take fourth place for 994 points.
Reaser concludes the heptathlon tomorrow with the long jump beginning at 11 a.m. (PT). Alumni Kortney Ross and Kristen Brown also compete tomorrow, in the pole vault, beginning at noon.
