Day Two Results

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.
- Allison Jeffries reset her pole vault school record and took second-place in the event to lead the way for Boise State on day two of the Mountain West Indoor Track and Field Championships at the Albuquerque Convention Center. Jeffries' height of 13-5.25 (4.10m) secured the best finish of the day for the Broncos as the majority of the events were preliminaries for tomorrow's finals.

"I think that this year I found myself again," Jeffries said. "I had a rough year last year, and now I'm just having fun vaulting again. I just came with the mindset to clear bars on my first try and I did that every time except for the last one, so it's a great feeling and I'm really pumped."

The senior from Eagle, Idaho now has both the outdoor and indoor pole vault school records with her outdoor PR standing at 13-7 (4.14m), coming in May 2015.

"It's a pretty cool feeling," Jeffries said on holding both records. "I always want to keep breaking it, but I'm pretty excited about having both."

Brenna Peloquin was able to join Jeffries with a top-three finish of her own in the 5,000m final, running a 16:49.71. Gracie Tostenson also cracked the top 10 with a 10th-place finish with a time of 17:13.48.

Sadi Henderson (2:09.22) and Amy Pfaff (2:11.91) both earned spots in tomorrow's 800m final after taking first and fifth, respectively, in the preliminary.

The men's sprinters were another bright spot on the day, as Dusty Fisher set the tone with two qualifying performances in the 60m and 200m races, clocking two career-best times of 6.80 and 21.15, respectively. Bryce Kirby (6.85) also recorded a PR in the 60m to take fifth place and qualify, as did Alexandru Terpezan (21.52) in taking third in the 200m, solidifying a spot in tomorrow's final.

Freshman Noah Horsburgh slid into tomorrow's final after taking eighth in the 800m preliminary after crossing the line in a career-best 1:52.55.

Yusuke Uchikoshi and Andrew Rafla both punched their tickets to tomorrow's mile final after recording a 4:12.65 and a 4:15.91, respectively, good for third and sixth place.

Miler Haller ran a 15:04.84 in the 5K to lead the way for the Broncos on the event. Fernando Martinez (48.44) was also ninth in the 400m preliminary.

Boise State will start the final day of competition tomorrow at 10 a.m. with the women's shot put.
