PHILADELPHIA/LA JOLLA, Calif. - The No. 21 San Diego State track and field team competed in the final day of both the Penn Relays and Triton Invitational Saturday, posting numerous collegiate and season bests in the process.
At the Penn Relays in Philadelphia, Kristen Brown finished eighth in the 100-meter hurdles championship with a time of 13.69 seconds. Brown had qualified for the championship after taking seventh in the prelims in 13.68 on Friday.
The 4x400-meter relay team of Shanieka Thomas, Maderia Toatley, Deyna Roberson and Renetia James initially ran a time of 3:35.42 in the college division, which would have been third and ranked sixth all-time in program history, but the team was disqualified.
