College of the Canyons freshman Jada Selexman has secured a spot at next month's California Community College Athletic Association (CCCAA) Track & Field State Championships after placing sixth at this week's 2015 SoCal Heptathlon Championship.

On the first day of competition Selexman competed in the 100m hurdles (15.97/eighth place), high jump (1.55m/fourth place), shot put (8.35m/seventh place) and 200m (26.22/first place).
