WOMEN'S TRACK & FIELD'S SHILAH BEDINGFIELD NAMED THE SACRAMENTO STATE FEMALE STUDENT-ATHLETE OF THE YEAR

Women's Track & Field's Shilah Bedingfield has been named the Sacramento State Female Student-Athlete of the Year.

The Palmdale, Calif., native tied the school record in the 60 meters during the indoor season after running 7.53 seconds. She made her mark in the outdoor season, setting school records in the 200 and 400 and winning the conference title in both events. Bedingfield advanced to the NCAA West Preliminary in the 100 and 200 and punched her ticket to the DIv. I Outdoor Championships after running 22.95 in the 200. That time set the school record and made her the first Hornet woman to break 23 seconds.
