No. 20 Aztec T&F Competes at Oxy Invitational
May 5, 2013
LOS ANGELES - Josefine Koskinen, Deyna Roberson and LaQuisha Jackson each posted all-time program top-10 marks at the Occidental Invitational on Saturday to pace the 20th-ranked San Diego State track and field team in its final meet before the championship season.
Koskinen finished fifth of 30 entrants in the 800 meters with a time of 2 minutes, 7.86 seconds. The 2:07.86 was just 0.01 faster than her previous best set in 2012, but is the sixth-fastest 800 in program history.
Roberson, meanwhile, came in third out of 18 competitors in the 400-meter hurdles in 58.86, which ranks seventh all-time at SDSU, and Jackson was fourth in the 100 in a time of 11.69 (No. 9 all-time with the Aztecs).
Thoraya Maronsey was the only San Diego State athlete to compete in a field event as she took third in the triple jump with a leap of 38 feet, 2 ¼ inches (11.64 meters).
Next up for SDSU is the four-day Mountain West Championships, which takes place in Las Vegas, Nev., from Wednesday, May 8 to Saturday, May 11.
