Feb. 23, 2018

Friday Results 
Sadi Henderson set another record, the women’s team picked up 15 points in the 5000 meter, and the Broncos advanced 16 competitors to tomorrow’s final. Business as usual for the Boise State track and field teams on day two of the Mountain West Indoor Track and Field Championships, Friday.

The women’s team advanced three runners to tomorrow’s final in the 800m – led by another phenomenal performance by Henderson. It took 200 meters for her to separate from the rest of her heat en route to a 2:04.60 – a time that breaks her Mountain West Championship record from last year’s final.

Henderson’s time converts to a 2:03.91 based on altitude, giving her the sixth-fastest time in the country entering Friday.

Amy Pfaff easily won her heat in 2:11.13 to auto-advance, while Kristie Schoffield used a strong charge up the backstretch on the final lap to move give her the seventh qualifying spot, finishing in a personal best of 2:13.09.

The women’s team picked up 15 points in the 5000 meter, led by Clare O’Brien’s runner-up finish in 16:30.85. She was followed by Grace McConnochie (16:37.02) and Minttu Hukka (16:59.50) to give the Broncos 15 points in one event. On the men’s side, Miler Haller took sixth in 14:56.90, good for three points.

Justin Stattner took eighth in the men’s pole vault to round out Boise State’s scoring on the day. Entering tomorrow’s final day, the men sit in sixth place with 9 points, while the women’s 25 points place them in fourth place.

The mile races will give the Broncos a good chance of adding to their point total, as Boise State advanced three runners to the final on both the men’s and women’s side. Yusuke Uchikoshi took second in his heat in 4:12.34, while Jeff Lautenslager (4:12.51) and Andrew Rafla (4:13.81) both advanced on time.

On the women’s side, Allie Ostrander (4:49.28) and Alexis Fuller (4:52.72) auto-advanced, while Anna McDonald (5:00.58) advanced on time.

In the men’s sprints, Alexandru Terpezan advanced in both the 60m and 200m, running the fourth-, and second-fastest times of the trials, respectively. Bryce Kirby advanced in the 60m after winning the first heat in 6.82, while Dusty Fisher was the first one out in the men’s 200m.

Noah Horsburgh and Jacob Grinwis both advanced in the 800m, and Ryan Cavinta advanced in the 60 meter hurdles to round out Boise State’s finalists on the men’s side.
