Henderson Garners MW Honor
Feb. 6, 2018

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.  – For the third time in her career, Sadi Henderson has been named the Mountain West Track Athlete of the Week for meets held Jan. 28-Feb. 4, the conference announced Tuesday.

Henderson now has two indoor honors from the conference to go along with her one outdoor honor.

The senior in indoor track and field, Henderson won the 800m in 2:05.59 at the Jacksons Nike Boise Indoor Invite this past Saturday. She took the lead with 400 meters remaining and held on to defeat professional runner Eleanor Fulton by 0.92 seconds.

The Corvallis, Mont., native came back to run a leg of Boise State’s 4x400 relay, which won in 3:50.89.

Her time in the 800m improved on her already Mountain West-leading time set at the UW Invitational (Jan. 26-27), and moved her into 14th in the nation this season.
