BOISE, Idaho – Boise State picked up five event titles on day one of the Border Clash Friday at Dona Larsen Park, as Taj Dorsett (women’s long jump), Kendra Noneman (women’s hammer throw), Sadi Henderson (women’s 800m), Anna McDonald (women’s 1,500m) and Noah Horsburgh (men’s 800m) all claimed victories in their respective events.

Dorsett jumped 18-3.25 (5.57) on her first attempt of the competition to earn first, giving the junior her first long jump title of 2018. Noneman was sensational, tallying career-best throws in three-consecutive attempts to start the event. She eventually ended on 178-5 (54.39m), putting her No. 6 in the Mountain West.

Sadi Henderson took care of business in the 800m with a 2:06.12 while teammate Kristie Schoffield was runner up and almost within reach of an NCAA West Regional qualifying time in the event, crossing the line in 2:09.04. Amy Pfaff (2:09.62) also performed well and took third.

The women’s 1,500m saw another Bronco sweep for the top three spots as McDonald won in a career-best 4:30.08. Minttu Hukka clocked a 4:34.68 for second and Erin Mullins gutted her way to a 4:35.52, taking third.

Horsburgh’s winning time of 1:53.20 in the 800m was just enough to fend off teammate Jacob Grinwis, as he took second a couple strides behind in 1:53.53. Ty Jordan carried over his momentum from last weekend in the 1,500m and ran a quality 1:54.45 to take third.

The men’s side of the 1,500m featured Ahmed Muhumed (3:49.32) and Andrew Rafla (3:52.41) taking second and third, respectively, behind Bronco alum and former All-American David Elliott (3:48.03).

Drew Lindsley was solid all day in the throws, taking second in the discus (152-11 / 46.60m) and third in the hammer (161-4 / 49.17m). Liz Gaffney was eighth in the discus for the women with a mark of 114-6 (34.90m).

The home meet will continue throughout the day tomorrow with the first events (high jump, javelin and shot put) set for 10 a.m. Action on the track will start at 10:30 a.m. with the 4x100m relay.
