Sacramento State Student-Athlete of the Week, Aug. 27-Sept. 2
Senior Amy Quinones was selected as the Sacramento State Student-Athlete of the Week after her performance at the Fresno State Cross Country Invitational.
Quinones started her season by finishing first at the Fresno Cross Country Invitational and helping the Hornet women claim the team title. The senior ran 18:02.00 over the 5K course to win by 13.3 seconds. She ran most of the race alongside her teammates before pulling away from the field over the last mile. Quinones led five Sacramento State runners in the top eight as the team finished with 27 points to defeat UCLA (45), UNLV (95) and Fresno State (100) in the six-team field.
The Hollister, Calif., native has now led Sacramento State in every meet since the start of the 2016. She also ranks among the top 10 in school history in the indoor mile and the outdoor 1500.
Sacramento State will next compete at the UC Riverside Invitational on Saturday, Sept. 15.
