January 24, 2017 (San Diego) - After breaking a program record and tying a second school-best mark at the Cherry and Silver Collegiate Invitational on Saturday, Jan. 21, San Diego State track & field senior Micha Auzenne was named the Mountain West Indoor Women’s Track Athlete of the Week, the conference office announced today.

This is Auzenne’s second career weekly honor, and the Aztecs’ first weekly Indoor Track & Field honor since the East Palo Alto, California native was honored alongside teammate Bonnie Draxler on Jan. 19, 2016.

Auzenne broke her own San Diego State record in the 60-meter hurdles and tied her mark in the 60-meter dash on the final day of the Cherry & Silver Invitational Saturday. She 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.

The 2016 MW Indoor Track and Field Most Outstanding Performer, Auzenne is a three-time indoor conference champion (2016 and 2015 60 hurdles, 2016 60 meters) and a three-time outdoor conference champion (2016 & 2015 100 hurdles, 2016 4x100 relay). Last season, she was a first-team USTFCCCA All-American in the 4x100-meter relay and was an All-American honorable mention in the 100-meter hurdles.

Auzenne and San Diego State travel to Seattle, Washington for the second time this season to compete at the UW Invitational on Friday, Jan. 27 and Saturday, Jan. 28.
