Townsend Finished Fifth

Boise State's Roderick Townsend had it won.  With one event remaining in the decathlon, Townsend was right in the thick of the race for the Mountain West Conference title.  But he only scored 155 points in the last event, the 1,500-meters, and finished fifth.

Townsend Leads Decathlon

With three events to go, Boise State's Roderick Townsend leads the field at the Mountain West Outdoor Track & Field Championships in Laramie, Wyoming.  New Mexico's Richard York, the first-day leader, hit a hurdle in the sixth event and scored zero points, clearing the way for Townsend.

Townsend has 5,101 points with hometown favorite Kyle Sullivan in second with 5,040 points.
