SAN DIEGO – The San Diego State pole vault team of Kristen Brown, Bonnie Draxler, Holly Waseloff and Kortney Ross combined to score 29 of the team’s 47 points to pace the Aztecs at the 2015 Mountain West Outdoor Track and Field Championships atop SDSU Sports Deck on Friday.

The 29 points places the Aztecs in third after seven completed events, trailing first-place New Mexico (57) by 10 points and second-place Colorado State (56) by nine points. Rounding out the list is Utah State (31), Wyoming (27), San Jose State (18), Boise State (14), Nevada (11), UNLV (9) and Fresno State (3).

Brown, who won her third-straight MW Outdoor Championship pole vault title, marked a new championship record after clearing 14-00.50. The height also places her at No. 3 in the conference. Following her lead were fellow Aztecs Draxler, Waseloff and Ross, who finished 2-3-4 after their mark of 13-03.75. With Brown’s victory, SDSU has now claimed the last five pole vaulting titles at the MW Outdoor Track and Field Championship.

In the discus throw, Alexa Evans threw a distance of 184-04 which earned her the No. 2 spot on the podium. In addition, Jasmine Burrell (172-01) and Ariel Oliver (162-09) finished in the top 5 after taking fourth and fifth place, respectively, out of 17 competitors.

On the track, eight Aztecs qualified for tomorrow’s final events, including Brown who also took first in the prelims for 100-meter hurdles with a time of 13.56 seconds. Madison Gipson (100mH, 400mH), Micha Auzenne (100, 100mH), Simone Glenn(100, 200) and Jazmen Bunch (100, 200) qualified for two events apiece.
