June 13, 2016 (New Orleans) - The U.S. Track & Field and Cross-Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) announced today that six San Diego State athletes have been named All-Americans due to their performance at the last stop of the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championship last week in Eugene, Oregon.

Sophomores Ashley Henderson and Simone Glenn and juniors Micha Auzenne and Starlynn Singleton all earned first-team honors in the 4x100 meter relay.  Henderson earned first-team on the 100-meter dash and second-team accolades on the 200-meter dash.  Auzenne received honorable mention on the 100-meter hurdles.  Junior Rachel Alesi and senior Alexa Evans were named to the second team discus. 

Singleton, Glenn, Auzenne and Henderson set a school record in the 100 with a time of 43.55 in the prelims on Thursday.  Auzenne's 13.27 time in the 100 hurdles prelims is the sixth fastest time in SDSU history.

Henderson, meanwhile, has qualified for the U.S. Olympic Trials in both the 100 and the 200.
