    Thanks to the SDSU Alumnae Assn emailing us, I was able to enjoy the Olympic Games more because we had some atheletes from SDSU. Keisha Baker ran the 4 X 400 led off runner and was spectular in having our Track and Field Women rectify the mishaps in 2008. It was great!!! and I might have missed it!!! Thanks SDSU.
