Hornet Invitational Results

Sacramento, Calif. --- The San José State women’s track & field team saw success in sprints, distances and jumps in the first meet of the 2017 outdoor season at the Hornet Invitational.
Caitlin Wilson was victorious in the 200-meter dash, Jeanette Zambrano shattered a school record and was runner-up in the 3,000-meter steeplechase and Cambree Harbaugh recorded a pair of top-five results in the long jump and triple jump.
Wilson, a junior from Tallahassee, Fla., clocked a 24.53 to beat out California’s Zion Corrales-Nelson for the win. The SJSU school record holder in the 200 beat out a deep field of 77 sprinters for the win on Saturday.
“Caitlin executed a beautiful race into less than favorable wind and couldn’t ask for a much better performance,” said sprints coach Kelley Watson.
Zambrano finished the steeplechase in a school-record 10:49.90. She beat the previous school record of 11:03.44 set by Lalida Maokhamphiou last season.
“She easily broke the record and has a lot left,” distance coach Brad Wick said. "This was a rust-buster for her and I think she is going to take off big time.”
San José State had a pair of top-five finishes in the long jump with Harbaugh in second and Kelsey Johnson-Upshaw in fourth. Harbaugh jumped 5.72 meters, falling just short of Chico State’s Brooke Whitburn with a winning jump of 5.84 meters. Johnson-Upshaw jumped 5.68 meters.
Later in the evening Harbaugh finished fifth out of 19 in the triple jump with a distance of 11.88 meters.
It was a full day for the Spartans who had seven freshmen get their first outdoor experience at the collegiate level. Among them was distance runner Jennifer Sandoval, who clocked a 4:36.64 in the 1500 for a 10th place finish among a field of 71.
The Fresno State Twilight Classic is up next for San José State on Tuesday evening, March 21.
