Husky Classic Results

SEATTLE, Wash. --
David Elliott ran a 3:57.68 in the mile at the Husky Classic Saturday at the Dempsey Indoor, becoming the 461st U.S. miler to accomplish the feat in track and field history -- as well as the 59th U.S. miler to do so in the state of Washington. The local Washingtonian's time is a school record and also the third-fastest time in Mountain West history.

But perhaps more impressive was Allie Ostrander in the 3,000m. The freshman ran an 8:54.27 in the 3,000m, giving her another Mountain West record in the process. Her time is the third-fastest oversize track 3,000m time in indoor collegiate history, and regardless of track size it's the 10th-fastest in indoor collegiate history.

This is the second time in a three-week span where she has made a splash in the national record book, as her 5,000m time (15:21.85) from two weeks ago at the UW Invitational is also the third-fastest oversize track time in collegiate indoor history. She has the fastest 3,000m and 5,000m times from this season, and is virtually guaranteed a spot in both events at the Indoor Track and Field National Championships. Both Elliott and Ostrander won their races with their career days.

Andrew Rafla moved up a spot in the school record book after running a 7:57.98 in the 3,000m, giving him the No. 2 time in school history. He placed 13th in what was a stacked field.

Also competing in the 3,000m was Jeff Lautenslager (8:17.46) who took 46th with a personal-best time and Yusuke Uchikoshi (8:19.99) who finished in 55th. Elijah Armstrong ran an 8:23.31 for 65th place.

Alexis Fuller also excelled in the mile, running a 4:47.58 to give her the third-fastest time in school history. On the men's side it was Tom Richardson (4:07.52) and Addison Dehaven (4:08.69) both recording season-best times for 31st and 43rd, respectively.

NAMPA, Idaho -- The Broncos came away with four titles at the Boise State Challenge Saturday at the Ford Idaho Center, capping off their last home indoor meet of the season. Chassity Love (25.16) won in the 200m, Dusty Fisher (48.40) crossed the line first in the 400m, Sadi Henderson (2:14.01) was victorious in the 800m and Kelsi Lasota (10:27.60) came away with the win in the 3,000m.

Anne Brinegar took second in the 3,000m with a 10:36.15, coming just behind Lasota. Juston Lindsley also fared well in the men's weight throw, tossing a personal-best length of 55-2 (16.81m) to take second. Karyna Armstrong also was a runner-up in the weight throw on the women's side, finishing with a 58-10 (17.93m).

The weight throw also saw Britlie Silvester (57-9 / 17.60m) take third, Mallory Nelson (53-11 / 16.43m) PR'd to take fourth and Courtney Hutchinson was fifth with a 49-11.75 (15.23m).

Jordan Ward was third in the high jump (5-7 / 1.70m) and Courtney Hutchinson was fourth in the shot put after recording a 41-10 (12.75m).

Other solid performances came from Rex Stanley who had a big personal-best time in the 200m after taking third with a 22.45, and Drew Lindsley was seventh in the weight throw -- also enjoying a PR -- after recording a 47-0.25 (14.33m).

The Broncos won't compete again until the Mountain West Indoor Track and Field Championships on Feb. 25-27 in Albuquerque, N.M.
