Track & Field win Big Sky Championship

State Hornet Staff

The Sacramento State men’s and women’s track and field squad concluded a dominant year by winning the Big Sky Championship at Hornet Stadium on Saturday.

Sac State became just the third school to sweep the indoor and outdoor track titles in Big Sky Conference history. Northern Arizona accomplished the feat in 1990, and Weber State in 2002.

The women finished with 236 points while Montana finished in second place with 133 points.

The men secured the title with 204.5 points to beat Northern Arizona who finished with 167.

Lea Wallace, who was named the Female Performer of the Week, broke the meet record in the 800-meter with a time of 2:04.36.

Junior Moira Robinson was named the Female Most Valuable Athlete after victories in the long jump and triple jump.

Ronald Brookins and Emillo Hernandez were named Co-Male Most Valuable Athletes.

The journey is not over for some performers. Some athletes will be selected to go to the NCAA First and Second Round in Eugene, Ore., which starts on May 27.
