BOISE, Idaho – The Boise State sprints group excelled in the season-opening meet at the Jacksons Open on Saturday at the Ford Idaho Center in Nampa. Chassity Love won the 300m on the women’s side with a 39.49, and Dusty Fisher, Alexandru Terpezan and Bryce Kirby went 1-2-3, respectively, in the men’s 300m for a clean sweep of the event.

Fisher clocked a 33.89, Terpezan was right behind with a 33.93 and Kirby secured third thanks to a 35.03. Kirby and Love – both true freshmen – were running in their first collegiate races.

Two of the top returners on the women’s team, Jordan Ward and Allison Jeffries, both captured titles in their respective events. Ward won the high jump after clearing 5-8.75 (1.75m), and Jeffries won the pole vault once she recorded a 12-7.50 (3.85m).

Courtney Hutchison earned another victory for the Blue and Orange in the shot put. She threw a 47-0.75 (14.34m), more than four feet farther than the second-place competitor. Morgan Van Kooten took sixth (39-10.50 / 12.15m).

Fernando Martinez opened the indoor season strong with a second-place finish in the 400m (48.12), and Cameron Wrout took third in the 500m with a time of 1:09.52.

It was a mix of former and current Broncos in the women’s weight throw. Former student-athlete and current volunteer assistant coach Hayli Bozarth (competing with Empire Track and Club) won the event with a 62-6.50 (19.06m), and Britlie Silvester was right behind in second (55-9.75 / 17.01m). Mallory Nelson took fifth (47-8.50 / 14.54m), Hutchinson (46-2 / 14.07m) placed seventh and Van Kooten (38-8.75 / 11.80m) finished in 12th.

Juston Lindsley led the way for the men’s team in the weight throw, recording a personal best 53-0 (16.15m) for fourth place. Drew Lindsley (cousin of Juston) tossed a 43-5.25 (13.24m) for ninth place.

Taj Dorsett took fifth in the 200m thanks to a time of 26.25. The men’s pole vault saw Camden Stoddard take third with a height of 15-1 (4.60m).

Brittany Owens – who will redshirt this year and was competing today unattached – took part in the long jump (18-3.75 / 5.58m) and the triple jump (37-9.25 / 11.51m), tying for third in the long jump and placing fifth in the triple.

The Broncos will continue training for the next month and return to the Ford Idaho Center for the Ed Jacoby Invitational/Multi on Jan. 15-16.
