LAST TIME OUT: Clare O’Brien ripped off a 9:09.01 in the 3,000m at the Husky Classic two weeks ago, making her the second-fastest women’s 3K runner in school history. The freshman surpassed Emma Bates (a 12-time All-American and the 2014 Outdoor Track and Field 10,000m National Champion) and her time of 9:11.98. O’Brien’s time was also the fifth-fastest time in Mountain West history.

The majority of the team stayed and competed at the Boise State Challenge, helping the Blue and Orange come away with six event titles on the weekend. Noah Horsburgh won two events – 800m and mile – to lead the Broncos at the Jacksons Indoor Track. Horsburgh’s best race came in the mile after he clocked a 4:15.70 for a 10-second personal best time. The freshman then followed it up with a victory in the 800m thanks to a 1:54.14. Sadi Henderson continued her assault on the Bronco record book and posted a 54.82 to win the 400m, making her the third-fastest indoor 400m runner in school history.

Dusty Fisher captured the 400m win on the men’s side with a 48.22. The most exciting race of the day was arguably the men’s 200m, as Alexandru Terpezan and Fernando Martinez squared off against Bronco alum and 2016 Olympian, Jordin Andrade. Terpezan (21.73) nipped Andrade (21.81) at the line for first, and Martinez was close behind in third (22.06). The last Bronco first-place finish was also a middle distance victory, as Amy Pfaff (2:12.54) held off a late charge from Nevada’s Eliza McCall (2:13.91).

NATIONALS SOON TO COME: Henderson’s 2:04.01 in the 800m and Clare O’Brien’s 9:09.01 in the 3,000m are currently both within the top 16 of their respective events in the national rankings, giving them tentative qualifying spots to the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships on March 10-11. With conference championships around the country still to be contested this weekend, neither spot is certain at this time. Henderson is relatively safe ranked No. 11, but O’Brien is firmly on the bubble at No. 16.
