Broncos at the Western Regional

Just to recap the late results...

Boise State finished 21st in the women's 4 x 100-meter relay, clocked at 45.21.

Daveon Collins wasn't going to have any of that 21st place stuff--he was 10th in the 200, turning in a 20.87 time, to advance to the National Championships.

But give it up for Emma Bates!  The blossoming Bronco sophomore, who already qualified for Nationals in the 10,000, was amazing on this night.  Emma ran the 5,000 in 16:04.03, which was 4th out of the 48 best collegiate women in the West.  She not only will compete in two events at Nationals, but she showed she had the stuff to be amongst the leaders in the 5,000.  Tessa Murray was not ale to keep pace and finished 32nd with a time of 16:56.16.

David Elliott was 28th in the men's 5,000' crossing the finish line in 14:34.54.  The Boise State 4x 400-meter relay team was just a little shy, placing 18th tonight (3:10.97).
