Bronco Track Team Comes Home From Oregon Relays With Medals

The Oregon Relays are famous for their competition, and the site (Eugene, Oregon) is the home of this year's NCAA National Championships.  But Boise State wasn't intimidated in the least.

Jasmyn Jewett won the triple jump with a leap of 40-feet, 6.75-inches, while the 4 x 100-meter relay team of Shannon Jacobs, Chelsey Washington, Brandi Williams and Kimberly Miller beat the field with a time of 48.21.  Meanwhile, the men's 400-meter relay team composed entirely of freshmen finished fourth with a time of 42.70.

Jacobs also claimed a fifth place finish in the 100-meters with a career best 11.98, while Justin Maines was fourth in the 110-meter hurdles (14.66).  Miller was fifth in the triple jump with a mark of 38-3.25, while Dominique Drayden was second in the men's triple with a leap of 47-5.  Jordan Ward topped 5-feet, 5-inches to place third in the high jump.

The Broncos will compete in the annual BYU Robison Invitational next week in Provo.
