The No. 13 Arizona State University men’s track and field team defended their Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Championship on Saturday while the No. 8 women took second overall following an action-packed day of competition at the Dempsey Indoor Facility in Seattle, Wash.

It was the best finish for the Sun Devil women since claiming the team time in 2008.

In the mile run, Shelby Houlihan, SC East, nabbed her first-ever conference title either indoors or outdoors as she cruised to the victory in 4:42.32  – nearly over two seconds quicker than her closest competition.

The Sun Devils will now set their sights on next weekend’s Last Chance meets as athletes on the bubble in their respective events will try one last time to solidify their ticket to the NCAA Championships in Fayetteville, Ark., in two weeks.  The top 16 individuals on the descending order list in each event following the next weekend of competition will advance to the finals.
