Zacharias Arnos Earns All-American Honors in the Triple Jump
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - Boise State track and field senior Zacharias Arnos gave an outstanding effort on Saturday afternoon (March 13) at the 2010 NCAA Division I National Indoor Track and Field Championships hosted by the University of Arkansas. Arnos had a near lifetime best in the triple jump, jumping 52-feet, 7.50-inches (16.04-meters) to help him to an eighth-place finish and earn his first All-American honor.
Arnos, who was one of 16 competitors in the event, recorded a jump of 52-feet, 4-inches (15.95-meters) in the first round of jumps. In the second and third rounds of the preliminary jumps, Arnos recorded fouls and had to wait through the second flight of preliminary jumps to affirm his advancement to the finals.
Including Arnos, four jumpers from the first flight advanced to the nine-man finals while five more were added from the second flight. Arnos opened up his final three jumps with a foul, but went on to post his the second-best mark of his career in his second jump of the finals. His third jump of finals and sixth jump of the day was a mark of 52-feet, 3.75-inches (15.94-meters).
Arnos' career-best mark of 52-feet, 7.75-inches (16.05-meters) was set just two weeks earlier at the Western Athletic Conference Championships. Arnos is a two-time qualifier for the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships, but participated in his first-ever indoor championships on Saturday. His highest finish at any NCAA national meet prior to this season was a 22nd-place finish.
Arnos was the only competitor for Boise State at the 2010 NCAA Indoor Track and Field National Championships.
Florida sophomore Christian Taylor won the men's triple jump with a mark of 56-feet, 4.50-inches (17.18-meters).
Arnos will return to Boise and prepare with his teammates for the beginning of the 2010 outdoor track and field season. The outdoor season opens Mar. 26-27 when they head to Tempe, Ariz., to compete in the Arizona State Team Invitational.
