NAMPA, Idaho –
The Broncos ended up with eight individual titles Saturday at the Jacksons Open in Nampa, Idaho at the Ford Idaho Center, including a sweep in the 800m thanks to victories from Sadi Henderson on the women’s side and Melika Ghali for the men. Henderson’s 2:09.31 is the second-fastest time in school history and currently the third-fastest time in the NCAA this season.

Ghali clocked a 1:57.1 to finish in first and freshman Matt McDonald earned third place in the 800m in what was his first collegiate race.

The mile was also a successful event for Boise State, as Amy Pfaff ran away with the women’s title after recording a 5:06.99. Two freshmen – Noah Horsburgh and Ty Jordan – finished in second (4:25.74) and third (4:27.10), respectively, in the men’s race.

First-year Kendra Noneman also made a splash in her debut, winning the weight throw thanks to a toss of 48-6.75 (14.80m). Drew Lindsley led the way for the men in the same event, taking fourth place (49-9.25 / 13.95m).

Courtney Hutchinson – who was competing unattached – easily won the shot put title with a mark of 48-4.75 (14.75m). Paige Inman also excelled in her first collegiate meet, taking sixth (38-6.75 / 11.75m). Kevin Ketterling buoyed the men in the event, recording a 41-5.25 (12.63m) for fourth place.

The men’s sprinters ran exceptionally well with Alexandru Terpezan (21.73) winning the 200m. Fernando Martinez (22.21) took third and Bryce Kirby (22.53) was fifth, good for three total top-five finishes in the event. Terpezan also was second in the 60m with a 6.99 and Kirby was close behind in third (7.02).

Dusty Fisher (48.17) cruised to an easy victory in the 400m, and Cameron Wrout (51.82 – 5th) added a top-five finish. Morgan Diefendorf picked up valuable experience on the women’s side, crossing the line in 1:02.84 for seventh place.

Camden Stoddard performed well in taking second in the men’s pole vault with a 15-7 (4.75m). Destiny Begin was the only Bronco pole vaulter on the women’s side to clear a height, coming in fourth place (10-2 / 3.10m).

Keegan McCormick ran an inspired race in the 3,000m to cross the finish line in first with a time of 8:52.52. Anna McDonald also ran well for the women, clocking a 9:58.38 to take second.

Taj Dorsett had a busy day, taking third in the 60m (7.86) and ninth in the long jump (16-8 / 5.08m).

The men’s 4x400m team ended the meet on a high note, convincingly winning the relay thanks to a time of 3:21.45. Martinez, Fisher, Terpezan and Kirby all ran.
