LAST TIME OUT: Last weekend the Broncos hosted the Jacksons/NB Indoor Invitational, and the Blue and Orange came away with five event titles. Juston Lindsley won the men’s weight throw on Friday with a career-best throw of 55-1.5 (16.80m).

On Saturday it was Chassity Love who picked up two wins in the 60m and 200m dash with times of 7.73 and 24.78. Alexandru Terpezan claimed the 200m title (24.78) and Jordan Ward won the high jump after clearing a height of 5-5.25 (1.66m).

The highlight of the weekend, however, turned out to be freshman Miler Haller, who took second place at the USATF Junior Cross Country Championships at Rivers Edge Golf Course in Bend, Ore., with a time of 26:16 on the 8k course. With his performance, Haller earned an automatic spot on the U.S. team in the 2016 APA Pan American Cross Country Cup. The event will take place in Caraballeda, Venezuela on March 5.

NATIONAL LISTS: On the men’s side, David Elliott still has the No. 4 spot on both the 3,000m (7:53.15) and 5,000m (13:49.82) national lists. For the women, all three Broncos – Allie Ostrander (15:21.85), Minttu Hukka (16:09.36) and Brenna Peloquin (16:11.90) – currently have qualifying times at the No. 1, 7 and 10 spots, respectively.

SUCCESS AT WASHINGTON: The Broncos will be looking to recreate the success they had two weekends ago at the UW Invitational. At that meet, the men’s side completely dominated all three heats of the 3,000m in which a Bronco won in all three meets. Eight athletes recorded personal bests, and five Broncos moved into the top-10 of the Boise State record book for the indoor 3,000m. Elliott (7:53.15) moved into first, Rafla (8:00.69) slid into third, Armstrong (8:00.69) made an impact with his first 3k appearance and now is fifth, Louis McAfee (8:10.62) took the eighth spot and Addison Dehaven (8:11.05) is now ninth.
