Meet Results

SEATTLE, Wash. –
Sadi Henderson added another chapter to her record-setting indoor season Saturday at the UW Invitational after running a 2:04.01 in the women’s 800m to reset her own school record and slide into the No. 2 spot in the Mountain West record book. Her time is also the second-fastest 800m time in NCAA Division I so far this season.

Amy Pfaff paced the race as a rabbit for Henderson and stepped off the track at roughly the halfway point. Already well in front, Henderson managed to maintain the fast pace over the course of the last 400 meters and crossed the finish line well ahead of the other runners in her heat.

Henderson ran a 2:05.71 two weeks ago to put herself firmly in contention on the national stage in the event, but today's performance all but guarantees her a spot at nationals in the event.

Clare O’Brien found her way into the Boise State record book after running a 9:21.76 in the 3,000m on the women’s side, making her the third-fastest 3K runner in school history. Five of the Broncos’ six 3K runners enjoyed career-best times; Brenna Peloquin (9:23.33), Anna McDonald (9:34.35), Gracie Tostenson (9:39.93) and Kyra Lopez (9:54.04).

Miler Haller led the men in the 3,000m after crossing the line in 8:11.21 for a PR. Ozo Rojas (8:28.44) and Chandler Austin (8:31.46) also enjoyed career-best times in the event.

Alexis Fuller – already the third-fastest women’s miler in school history – improved on her mark in the Bronco record book and logged a 4:46.67. Amy Pfaff ran a 4:56.42 for a PR, as well.

Yusuke Uchikoshi (4:09.70) had the fastest mile on the men’s side, but the story of the race was Melika Ghali’s 4:12.13, good for the fastest mile of his career.

Fernando Martinez had the best overall finish on the day, racing to second place in the 400m. His 48.16 is a season-best time in the event.

Both Camden Stoddard and Allison Jeffries had successful days pole vaulting as both were able to take 11th place on the men’s and women’s sides, respectively. Stoddard was just shy of his PR at 16-3.25 (4.96m), and Jeffries did well to earn a season-best height of 12-6.75 (3.83m).

Kendra Noneman (33-9.50 / 10.30m) picked up valuable experience in the shot put.

The Broncos will return to the Ford Idaho Center next weekend when they host the Jacksons Invitational from Feb. 3-4.
