Bulldogs Headed to WAC Indoor Championships
Feb. 25, 2010
FRESNO, Calif. - An up-and-coming Fresno State women's track team is ready to make an impact at Western Athletic Conference Indoor Track and Field Championships on Friday and Saturday in Nampa, Idaho
"We have some ladies that could be in the hunt for a conference championship and help us pick up points," Fresno State head coach Scott Winsor. "This year we're trying to climb the ladder."
Sophomore Latrisha Jordan leads a solid Bulldog core. Last season, as a freshman, Jordan earned All-American honors by posting a career-best 58.14 in the 400-meter hurdles for an eighth-place finish at the NCAA Championships.
Senior Roxanne Sellick is another Bulldog veteran that has made a name for herself in the WAC. The 2009 second team All-WAC honoree is coming off a career-best 4:51.55 1-mile performance at the Huskie Classic on Feb. 13, which earned her Verizon Wireless Western Athletic Conference Women's Indoor Track and Field Athlete of the Week honors.
Because Fresno State does not have any multi-event athletes, the Bulldogs' first day of action will be Day 2 on Friday. After one day of competion, Idaho is in first place with 22 points, followed by Hawai'i (seven points), Nevada (six points), Louisiana Tech (three points) and Utah State (one point).
The championships will conclude on Saturday. Fresno State will next be in action at the NCAA Indoor Championships in Fayetteville, Ark., on March 12-13.
