BRONCOS RECORD FOUR NCAA REGIONAL QUALIFYING MARKS, SATURDAY, AT MT. SAC RELAYS

WALNUT, Calif. - The Boise State track and field team earned four NCAA regional qualifying marks, Saturday (April 18), on the third and final day of competition at the Mt. SAC Relays. All four regional qualifiers came in elite men’s field event action.

Senior Ryan Grinnell led the way for the Broncos with regional qualifying jumps in the elite division high jump and long jump. He placed third in the high jump with a mark of 7-00.50 (2.15m). Grinnell also earned a fifth-place finish in the long jump (25-01.75/7.66m). His long jump mark ties Troy Kemp (1988) for the third best in school history.

Zacharias Arnos joined Grinnell with a regional qualifying mark in the elite division triple jump. His leap of 50-02.50 (15.30m) was good enough for eighth-place in the meet. Arnos’ top jump so far this season is 51-04.25 (15.65m).

Boise State’s final regional qualifying mark came in the men’s elite division hammer throw with Simon Wardhaugh’s mark of 217-00 (66.14m). His throw would place seventh in the event. Wardhaugh improved upon his top throw so far this season by nearly four feet (213-03/65.01m).

The Broncos will head to the Robinson Invitational in Provo, Utah next Friday-Saturday (April 23-24). Boise State’s final regular season meet of the outdoor season will be the Bronco Twilight on Friday (May 1) at Bronco Stadium.
