Redshirt-sophomore sprinter Tramesha Hardy competed in the women’s 200-meter dash and junior high jumper Chelsie Decoud competed in the women’s high jump at Sacramento State’s Hornet Stadium.

Both Hardy and Decoud were also the two out of three Texas State athletes to qualify for the NCAA Outdoor Championships in Eugene, Oregon.

Hardy competed in the first round of the women’s 200-meter dash Saturday afternoon. She finished in 22nd place out of 30 with a time of 23.47. She then ran in the second heat and finished in seventh.
