UTSA women rank 43rd in final NCAA Indoor standings

BOSTON – Working off the First Team All-American performance of freshman Ida Breigan at last weekend’s NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships at The TRACK at New Balance, the UTSA women’s track & field team earned a No. 43 ranking in the final meet standings – marking the highest UTSA indoor championships finish in 18 years.

The 43rd-ranked Roadrunners ranked the highest since the 2006 season, when UTSA finished 39th in Indianapolis, Ind. It is also the highest indoor finish for either UTSA squad since 2013, when the men were 40th in Fayetteville, Ark.

On Friday in Boston, Breigan became the first women’s true freshman Roadrunner to earn indoor First Team All-America honors with a sixth-place finish at the championship meet. Competing in her first NCAA Championships and performing in only her fourth collegiate long jump competition, the UTSA rookie from Fredrikstad, Norway, went 6.38m (20-11.25) on her first jump to secure sixth place and only the second UTSA First Team All-American honor in the indoor women’s long jump event.

The Roadrunners tied at the spot with Louisville, Vanderbilt, West Virginia and Wichita State, beating out 22 teams from power conferences, including storied programs like UCLA, Auburn and Kansas.

With the indoor season in the books, the UTSA outdoor track & field season kicks off at Park West with a two-day home competition, March 15-16, with the UTSA Invitational. Following an eight-meet outdoor regular season, the Roadrunners will also host the American Athletic Conference Championships at Park West, May 10-12.
