Meet Results

CLOVIS, Calif. –
Boise State picked up 15 points in the women’s 10,000m Thursday night at the Mountain West Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Clovis, Calif., – the second-most points in a single event at a Mountain West Outdoor Track and Field Championships in program history.

Clare O’Brien took third thanks to a time of 34:00.33, making her the third-fastest Bronco in school history in the event. Gracie Tostenson (34:14.11) was right behind in fourth and freshman Emily Venters (34:16.66) rounded out the scoring in fifth place.

The performances from Tostenson and Venters were also worthy of mention in the Bronco record book, as they are now the fourth and seventh fastest, respectively, in program history for the 10K.

“I thought all three of those young ladies did a great job and worked through the first half of the race together and competed hard,” head coach Corey Ihmels said. “Obviously that’s what the conference meet is all about – working together and trying to get as many points as we can as a group.”

In regards to single-event point output at the MW outdoor championships, the 15 points from the Bronco 10K trio is second in program history to only Emma Bates (1st) and Marisa Howard (2nd) scoring 18 points in the 2015 5K.

“It was great to see Clare run the time that she did, Emily battled and Gracie continues to have a great spring. It’s exciting for those guys so start us off on a good note.”

Rhys Park was the lone Bronco to compete in the 10K on the men’s side. He took 10th after crossing the line in 31:11.02.

The team will resume action at the championships tomorrow starting at 3 p.m. PT with the men’s hammer throw, women’s shot put and women’s long jump.
