Men's Results Women's Results
Boise State's women's team finished second with 50 points, while the men finished third (64 points).
The seven All-Mountain West honorees is tied for the most in program history (2015), while Muhumed is the third Bronco to earn conference freshman of the year honors since Boise State joined the Mountain West (Andrew Rafla- 2014, Elijah Armstrong- 2015).
Allie Ostrander and Emily Venters earned first-team All-Mountain West honors on the women’s side by placing fourth and seventh, respectively. On the men’s side Miler Haller was the lone Bronco to be named first-team All-Mountain West, thanks to his sixth-place finish.
Senior Minttu Hukka was one spot shy of earning first-team honors, but her eighth-place effort was still good for second-team All-Mountain West. Michael Vennard, Addison Dehaven and Riley Campbell all earned second-team All-Mountain West honors on the men’s side.
Vennard has now earned All-Mountain West cross country honors all four years.
First-team All-Mountain West is awarded to the first seven runners to cross the finish line, while second-team is awarded to those finishing in the next seven places.
The men’s team was the first to go off on the 8-kilometer course. The field stayed packed together past the 2-kilometer mark, with the majority of the Boise State lineup towards the front of the group.
As Colorado State’s Jerrell Mock and Cole Rockhold, and Utah State’s Dillon Maggard began to pull away from the field, Haller moved up within the top 10. The redshirt sophomore used a strong finish over the final kilometer to finish sixth (23:57.80).
“Being up at elevation, I’m pretty proud about what I did,” Haller said. “It was pretty slow to start out with, and then a move was made. I did a pretty good job of covering it and staying tough up top.”
Dehaven held steady throughout the race to place 11th (24:15.19) – earning the first All-Mountain West cross country honors of his career. Vennard (24:28.20) and Campbell (24:29.27) ran strategic races to finish strong over the final four kilometers to finish within the top 14.
Colorado State won the men’s team title with 31 points, while Air Force narrowly topped the Broncos, 59 points to Boise State’s 64. Mock won the individual title in 23:49.74.
“Today we were a little disappointed taking third, but we know that there’s a progression still going on,” Haller said. “We’re excited about West Regionals . . . we expect big things.”
In the women’s race, Ostrander went with the front pack of five New Mexico runners, with the rest of Boise State’s lineup leading the chase pack. Ostrander was able to hold on for a fourth-place finish, running 20:27.83 for 6-kilometers.
Running as a tight pack for the third-straight race, Boise State was able to land three runners in the top 10 to finish second as a team. Freshman Emily Venters ran consistently throughout the race to finish in seventh (20:55.6), with Hukka a spot behind in eighth (20:59.76).
Host New Mexico won the team title with 22 points, while the Lobos’ Ednah Kurgat won the individual title.
Boise State continues the championship portion of the season at the NCAA West Region Championships – the qualifying meet for the NCAA National Championships. The West Regional will be held in Seattle, Wash., Nov. 10.
