SAN JOSE, Calif.— Emilia Sjostrand, Lina Schubert, Victoria Agyin, Alyssa Bean, Bryson Smith, Ajamu Reed, Demaris Waters, Christopher Coats, Roman Johnson and Cameron Tarver each earned an All-Mountain West selection after medalling at the MW Indoor Championships in Albuquerque, N.M. last weekend.


  • Sjostrand submitted the first and second best distances in school history in the Women's Long Jump with marks of 6.48m (21'3.25") and 6.29m (20'7.75"). She now holds the school record and was crowned as SJSU's first MW champion of the season. She also took the MW Women's Triple Jump title after submitting a school and MW record-setting distance of 13.71m (44'11.75"). She also jumped a second-best all-time mark of 13.64m (44'9") in the same day, and the title is Sjostrand's second of the weekend. Sjostrand was also named Women's Performer of the Meet for winning two titles in as many days, and now has two All-MW selections to her name for the Triple Jump and Long Jump
  • Schubert finished sixth overall in the Pentathlon on Day One after a solid all-around performance that saw her finish third in the High Jump with a mark of 1.70m (5'7") and included three more top ten event finishes in the competition. She followed that up on Day Two of the competition by finishing third in the Women's High Jump with a final mark of 1.73m (5'8")
  • Agyin took third place to share the podium with Sjostrand in the Women's Triple Jump with a distance of 12.67m (41'7")
  • Bean broke four school records in Albuquerque, first breaking the Women's 200m and 400m records on Day Two and then breaking both marks again a day later in the final races of the meet. On Day Two, Bean set the school record in the Women's 200m Dash with a mark of 23.73 and the Women's 400m Dash with a mark of 53.69. Bean then broke her two previously set school records in the final day on her way to two third place finishes and two All-MW selections in the Women's 200m Dash and 400m Dash. Her record-setting marks were 23.67 seconds and 53.41 seconds respectively


  • In the Men's Weight Throw, Smith recorded the third, fourth and fifth best distances in school history, going for 19.08m (62'7"), 18.26m (59'11") and 18.25m (59'10") respectively. He finished in second place in the overall competition

  • Waters won the Men's 60m Hurdles with a mark of 7.72 seconds, good for a new MW record and school track record over the previous mark of 7.74 set by Dedy Cooper in 1977. Waters made an unusual decision before racing in the final after he qualified by placing second in his preliminary heat with a mark of 7.89 seconds, shaving his head completely and improving by .17 seconds in the final race
  • Coats took home a MW title in the Men's 400m Dash with a mark of 46.27 seconds, breaking SJSU legend Tommie Smith's school record of 46.44 which was set in 1964.
