BOISE, Idaho – Boise State senior Emma Bates has been named the Mountain West Women’s Indoor Track and Field Athlete of the Week after a school record performance Saturday, Feb. 22. 

Bates snagged her first MW weekly honor of the indoor track season after racing to a school record of 9:11.98 to win the women’s 3000-meters at the Notre Dame Alex Wilson Invitational. Her mark puts her at 19th in the nation in the event and marks the third-fastest time in conference history.

This marks the second MW honor for the Broncos during the indoor season, adding to senior Mackenzie Flannigan’s award given Feb. 11.

Wyoming’s Mason Finley won the MW Men’s Indoor Track and Field Athlete of the Week honors after winning the Rocky Mountain Classic in the shot put.
