WOMEN FINISH SECOND, MEN FOURTH AT BIG SKY INDOOR CHAMPIONSHIPS

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — Andre Lindsey, Jah Strange and Brittany Patterson each won individual events for Sacramento State during the final day of the Big Sky Conference Indoor Track & Field Championships presented by Red Lion.

The Hornet women finished second while the men were fourth. Northern Arizona won both team titles while competing at its home facility throughout the championships.

Following the meet, Emilia Del Hoyo was named the Women's Most Valuable Athlete after scoring 22 points in four events.

The meet was the final indoor team competition for Sacramento State this winter. The Hornets will start their outdoor season at the Aggie Open on Friday, March 9.

MEN'S TRACK HIGHLIGHTS

Andre Lindsey completed his career hurdles duo by winning the 60-hurdles on Saturday. Lindsey was the Big Sky outdoor champion in the 110-hurdles last spring and was able to edge a pair of competitors at the line to add the indoor crown. The Stockton, Calif., native ran a career best 7.87 in the final. That time is the second fastest in school indoor history and is the 33rd fastest in NCAA Div. I this year heading into today. Lindsey also scored for the team in the 60-meter dash by placing eighth in 6.91. That was also a career best and ranks as the fifth fastest in program history.

Alec Foster followed his PR in the 400 on Friday by shaving additional time off that mark on Saturday. Foster ran 47.60 to finish fifth in the meet and is now third all-time at Sacramento State.

WOMEN'S TRACK HIGHLIGHTS

Carly Schulz was part of three school top 10 marks on Saturday. Schulz finished third in the 400, was fourth in the 200 and anchored the 4x400 relay team which finished third. Schulz ran 54.74 in the 400 to beat her previous best by eight-tenths of a second and post the second fastest time in the event in Hornet history. She ran 24.39 in the 200 which jumped her into fourth place at Sacramento State.

Schulz completed her day by anchoring the 4x400 relay which finished third overall and recorded the third best time in school history in 3:44.28. Cassidy Zurn ran the leadoff leg before handing off to Shilah Bedingfield. Mikayla Revera took the third leg with Schulz on the anchor.

Emilia Del Hoyo and Artearra Coffey each scored in the 60-hurles. Del Hoyo ran 8.84 to finish in sixth place while Coffey was eighth in 8.85.

Darius Armstead, who was competing for the first time this season, had a memorable debut by finishing third at 49-10.00.
