LAST TIME OUT
The Broncos traveled to Tempe, Ariz. and competed in the Sun Angel Classic this past weekend. Hayli Bozarth led the Broncos and set the school record in the shot put after tossing a 50-2 (15.29m), good for fourth place. Megan Kelley won the 400m hurdles open section with a time of 1:02.39, Allison Jeffries won the pole vault premiere section (12-7 / 3.81m) and Kyle Merritt was victorious in the 1500m (3:53.38).

The Sun Angel Classic was the first meet of the outdoor season for most Broncos who competed this past weekend. Other top finishers included Megan Kelley (400m hurdles, 1:02.39); Keefe Hanson (3000m steeplechase, 9:51.73); Kimberly Miller (long jump, 19-1.50 / 5.83m); Jasmyn Jewett (triple jump, 40-9.5 / 12.43m); Dominique Drayden (long jump, 22-0.25 / 6.71m) and Austin Hamilton (javelin, 199-10 / 60.91m).

BRONCOS IN THE RANKINGS
The Boise State women dropped two spots in the national rankings this past week and now sit at No. 61. Marisa Howard sits atop the MW rankings in the 5000m and ranks No. 9 nationally in the 3000m steeplechase. Tessa Murray sits right behind Howard at No. 2 in the 5000m MW rankings. Emma Bates is ranked 15th in the 10000m and 26th in the 5000m in the national rankings. Hayli Bozarth is ranked No. 4 in the MW and No. 15 nationally in the hammer throw, and No. 4 in the MW in the shot put. Bates and Howard are unranked in the MW in their respective events because they have yet to compete in an outdoor meet this season.

The men jumped one spot in the national rankings, putting them at No. 44. Jordin Andrade holds a No. 4 national ranking in the 400m hurdles, but he has yet to compete in an outdoor meet this season. Zach Wiles and Allan Schroeder still hold the No. 1 and No. 2 spots in the MW in the 3000m hurdles, respectively. Wiles is No. 13 nationally and Schroeder is No. 18. David Elliott continues to hold the top 5000m time in the MW by more than 10 seconds and ranks No. 47 nationally. Matt Post's throw of 210-6 last weekend at the Sun Angel Classic gave him the No. 1 spot in the MW in the hammer throw and the No. 16 spot nationally.

FRESHMAN FLAVOR
A handful of freshman made successful outdoor debuts this past weekend. Allison Jeffries paced the surge of young Broncos with her victory in the pole vault premiere section and a 10th-place finish in the 100m hurdles. Dominique Drayden turned in two quality events when he took fourth place in the long jump and eighth in the triple jump. Alexandru Terpezan, the Romania native, finished eighth in the 200m and Fernando Martinez, the Mexico native, recorded a 10th-place finish in the 400m hurdles.

HISTORIC LOCATIONS
The Blue and Orange will compete at two of the country's most decorated track and field locations this weekend. Hayward Field in Eugene, Ore. has hosted 10 NCAA Championships, more than any other venue in the country. Hayward Field also hosted the legendary performances of Steve Prefontaine, one of the most famous runners in United States' track and field history. Read more about Hayward Field HERE.

Hilmer Lodge Stadium in Walnut, Calif. has been home to the Mt. SAC Relays for 55 years. 20 World Records and two Olympic Track and Field Trials have taken place at Hilmer Lodge Stadium over the years. Read more about Hilmer Lodge Stadium HERE.
