April 22, 2018 (Torrance/Long Beach) - The San Diego State Track & Field team wrapped up a jam-packed weekend Saturday by competing in the Beach Invitational and the Mt. SAC Relays. Ashley Henderson highlighted the day for the Aztecs by winning the 200 and taking second in the 100 meter dash at the Mt. SAC Relays.

Henderson’s time of 22.66 seconds in the 200, was just 0.12 seconds off her personal best, which is the second best time in school history. She finished in 11.06 seconds in the 100, which is a school record for a senior and a season best for Henderson. Henderson set the school record in the 100 last season with a time of 11.01 seconds.
