GRINNELL WINS WAC FIELD ATHLETE OF THE WEEK AWARD

BOISE, Idaho On Monday (April 13) the Boise State track and field team earned its second consecutive Western Athletic Conference Men’s Field Athlete of the Week award as Ryan Grinnell has received the honor for April 6-12. Last week junior Zacharias Arnos also won the award, which was Boise State’s first outdoor WAC honor of the season. This marks the first time in Grinnell’s career that he has earned the Outdoor Field Athlete of the Week award.

            Grinnell, a senior from Idaho Falls, Idaho (Skyline HS/University of Montana), received the award after winning the university division triple jump at the Sun Angel Classic in Tempe, Ariz this past weekend. His leap of 53-3.75 (16.25m) is a regional qualifying mark. Grinnell also recorded a regional qualifying mark in the long jump (24-2.25/7.57m) with a fourth-place finish at the meet. Both jumps rank first in the WAC. He is currently the only student-athlete in the conference to have garnered a regional qualifying mark in the long jump as well.
