Seattle, Wash. --- The San José State women’s track & field team had four distance runners compete on Sunday and all four achieved personal-best times in the 3,000 meters.
“Running a personal best is always the goal,” said Spartans’ distance coach Brad Wick. “We’re all heading in the right direction and for just being a couple weeks of training for this season I think we are in a good place.”
Jennifer Sandoval led the way with a 9:48.97, good for seventh place in a field of 66 runners. Jeanette Zambrano was just behind in 12th place with a 9:59.01, and Adilene Aldapa was 19th with a time of 10:09.73. Karina Nunes clocked a 10:31.85 to round out the four runners who all beat their personal bests by more than 10 seconds.
The Husky Classic was San José State’s final tuneup before the Mountain West Indoor Championships taking place Feb. 23-25, in Albuquerque, N.M.
“That will be a very competitive field,” said Wick,” We are inching closer and closer to where we need to be in order to be competitive in that meet. We have a few weeks ahead to get ready.”
