LAST TIME OUT
A little less than two weeks ago the Broncos competed in the Husky Classic and Allie Ostrander ran an 8:54.27 in the 3,000m, giving her another school and Mountain West record in the process. Her time is the third-fastest oversize track 3,000m time in indoor collegiate history, and regardless of track size it's the 10th fastest.

David Elliott also excelled, running a 3:57.68 in the mile to make him the 461st U.S. miler to accomplish the feat in track and field history -- as well as the 59th U.S. miler to do so in the state of Washington. The local Washingtonian's time is a school record and also the third-fastest time in Mountain West history.

Andrew Rafla moved up a spot in the school record book after running a 7:57.98 in the 3,000m, giving him the No. 2 time in school history.

NATIONALS ON THE HORIZON: Entering the conference championships, David Elliott has the No. 6 time in the country in the mile (3:57.38) and the No. 14 time in the 3,000m (7:53.15). With the top 16 times advancing to nationals, Elliott likely has an appearance in the mile locked in and will also be gunning for a faster 3k time this weekend.

Allie Ostrander has the No. 1 time in both the 3,000m (8:54.27) and the 5,000m (15:21.85), virtually guaranteeing herself a spot in either or both races at nationals.

The rest of the Broncos will be looking to record season-best times this weekend that will hopefully jump them into the top 16 in their respective events.
