Excelling in the pole vault and 4x400m relay, five Aztecs have earned All-America honors for women athletes from the U.S Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCA).
Senior pole vaulter Bonnie Draxler was named to the first team. The Aztec 4x400m relay team—Sakura Roberson, Lisa-Anne Barrow, Jalyn Harris and Nyjari McNeil—earned second-team honors.
Student-athletes earn First-Team All-America status by finishing among the top eight of their events – including as a member of a relay team – at the 2019 NCAA Division I Outdoor Track & Field Championships this past weekend in Austin, Texas. Second-Team All-America honors went to those student-athletes who finished between ninth and 16th place.
Draxler finished second in the pole vault at the NCAA Outdoor Championships last Thursday after tying her personal record and school record of 14-09.50 (4.51m). This was the second time this year that Draxler earned the silver medal at the NCAA Championships. She cleared 14-11.50, an SDSU indoor record, and was runner-up at the 2019 NCAA Indoor Championships in March.
