NAMPA, Idaho – The Broncos finished day two of the Ed Jacoby Invitational with three event titles, giving the hosts five total wins in the two-day meet at the Ford Idaho Center in Nampa, Idaho. Boise State’s top performance came from David Elliott (4:09.87), who won the men’s mile by a convincing 2.6 seconds ahead of the second-place competitor.

The mile was the most popular event for Boise State on both the men’s and women’s sides. After Elliott, it was freshman Elijah Armstrong (4:14.13) taking third in the first track and field meet of his collegiate career. Louis McAfee was a sliver behind Armstrong finishing in fourth place with a time of 4:14.21, and Andrew Rafla (4:14.61) took fifth in his first race since last April.

Addison Dehaven (4:16.10), Jeff Lautenslager (4:16.40) and Rhys Park (4:16.93) all recorded top-10 spots, finishing in seventh, eighth and ninth place, respectively.

In the women’s mile it was Brenna Peloquin leading the way with a second-place finish thanks to a 4:55.18. Fellow freshman Alexis Fuller also excelled, coming extremely close to breaking the five-minute mark with a 5:00.28 that earned her fourth. Kyra Lopez also finished in the top 10, taking ninth place after finishing in 5:15.75.

Juston Lindsley won the men’s weight throw with a 53-0 (16.15m), tying his career-best mark that he recorded a month ago at the Jacksons Open. Drew Lindsley took sixth after recording a 44-9.50 (13.65m).

It was a similar story for Hutchinson in the shot put, as she matched her mark from the Jacksons Open, coming away with a 47-0.75 (14.34m) and the event title. This is the second meet in a row that she has won the shot put with a 47-0.75. Morgan Van Kooten took ninth after tossing a 41-4.25 (12.60m).

Chassity Love had a nice day in the sprints, taking third in the 60m dash (7.71) and second in the 200m (24.87). Allison Jeffries was runner-up in the pole vault, clearing 12-3.50 (3.75m).

The jumps were highlighted by Taj Dorsett, who competed in both the long jump and triple jump. The Nassau, Bahamas native recorded a 17-7.50 (5.37m) in the long jump and a 36-6.75 (11.14m) for fifth and sixth place respectively.

Ali Deitsch took third in the 800m with a time of 2:21.08, and Jessica Bottelberghe was seventh (2:26.44).

Three Broncos – Dusty Fisher, Rex Stanley and Cameron Wrout – competed in the 400m, with Fisher claiming fourth-place honors after crossing the line in 49.83. Stanley took sixth (50.47) and Wrout finished in eighth (51.79).

Camden Stoddard logged a fifth-place finish in the high jump after 6-3.25 (1.91m), and Danny Verdieck took sixth in the 60m hurdles after clocking a 6.80.

The Boise State track and field team will return to the friendly confines of Jacksons Track at the Ford Idaho Center a week from today and host the Bronco Invitational on Saturday, Jan. 23.
