BIG OPPORTUNITIES: Last season the Oregon Twilight saw Sadi Henderson run a 2:04.10 in the 800m to for a personal-best performance in the evnet at the time. The time solidified her qualification to the NCAA West Regional and was a major step in ultimately earning a bid to nationals on the same track a month later.

The Broncos last competed at the Payton Jordan Invitational in 2014 where Emma Bates ran the 12th-fastest 10,000m time (32:30.83) in NCAA history and set the Mountain West record. Marisa Howard also was sensational that day in the 3,000m steeplechase, clocking a 10:00.79 for the then-school record.

All five Boise State athletes competing this weekend will be in competitive, fast heats that should once again create opportunities for standout performances.

THE BOWERMAN RECOGNIZES OSTRANDER: The Bowerman once again recognized Allie Ostrander in its Women’s Pre-Conference Championships Watch List, giving the redshirt sophomore her second-straight appearance on the watch list for track and field’s most prestigious award. Ostrander is just one of two distance athletes on the list and the only representative from the Mountain West.
