FRESNO, Calif.- The Fresno State track and field team continues its busy start to the outdoor season with a trip to Palo Alto, Calif., this weekend to compete in the Stanford Invitational. Field events begin on Friday morning at 9 a.m. with running events getting underway at 10:40 a.m. Competition continues into Saturday.
Je'Nia Sears, a Fresno native, enters the weekend after an impressive showing at last weekend's Texas Relays. The junior broke her own school record in the long jump with a jump of 20 feet, 7 inches (6.27 meters). That jump distanced her from the rest of the Mountain West Conference athletes and moved her to No. 5 in the NCAA this season.
Also in the long jump, but on the men's side, junior Devin Harrisonis coming off a season-best jump of 24-07.75 (7.51m). He won his section of the Texas Relays and continues to have the top mark in the Mountain West.
The other Mountain West leader on the men's side is senior Roderick Dash. His throw of 197-08 (60.26m) last weekend at the Texas Relays was good enough to take the conference's top mark.
Sisters Kyra Johnson and Dezirae Johnsonwill be in action this weekend. The sophomores rank 1-2 in the conference in the 400-meter hurdles, separated by just .03 seconds. They are make up half of the Bulldogs' 4x400 relay team that is No. 1 in the Mountain West.
Fresno State also owns the top 4x100 relay time in the conference this season. Both relay teams will compete this weekend at Stanford.
