Braden's in the NCAA Nationals

Forest Braden of Boise State broke the school record in the 5,000 meter run to highlight a busy day for the Bronco track and field team.

Boise State's Forest Braden broke the 5000-meter school record yesterday at the Husky Classic in Seattle, automatically qualifying for the NCAA Track & Field Championships in the process. Braden ran the distance in 13 minutes, 47.73 seconds to break Jose Uribe's nine-year old record by an incredible 21 seconds. Braden beat his personal best in the event by nearly 25 seconds. He was the fourth best collegian in the event, losing only to runners from Wisconsin, Ohio State and Colorado, and finished seventh overall. The NCAA Indoor Championships are slated for March 10th and 11th in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

Rebecca Guyette placed 13th in the women's mile while Wijnand Rijkenberg was 33rd in the men's mile at the Classic. Most of the Bronco team was in Nampa hosting the Holiday Inn Invitational at Jackson's Track. Roger White captured the triple jump with a mark of 46 feet, 10 inches, Cody Eaton won the mile in 4 minutes, 17.83 seconds, and Meadow Braden took honors in the women's 3000-meter run in 11 minutes, 16.31 seconds.

Five Broncos took second at the Holiday. Antoine Echols ran a 21.39 200, Ty Axtman was beaten only by Rob Watson of Colorado State in the 3,000, Alina Schimpf finished second to Utah State's Kathryn Duhadwav, Eleni Kafourou was second in the women's triple jump and the Bronco women's 4 x 400 relay team was runners-up as well.

Saturday's action was the final competition before the Western Athletic Conference Indoor Championships, which kick off next Wednesday. The Broncos will host the league championships at Jackson's at the Idaho Sports Center in Nampa.
