Kafourou Wins Another WAC Title

Eleni Kafourou continues her incredible career at Boise State. The Bronco sophomore, who won triple jump titles at both the WAC Indoor & Outdoor Championships last year, won her third event this afternoon at the 2007 WAC Indoor Championships in Nampa.

Boise State's amazing sophomore Eleni Kafourou got the ball rolling for the Bronco track team this afternoon at the Western Athletic Conference Track & Field Championships in Nampa.  Kafourou registered a jump of 20 feet, 5.25 inches to win the WAC title in the high jump, beating her closest competitor by nearly four inches.


Sandra Anane of New Mexico State finished second with a jump of 20-1.75, with Cal State-Northridge's Shelese Ruffin finishing third.  Boise State's Aspen Clontz finished 11th.


Kafourou, who was named WAC Indoor Freshman of the Year last year after winning the triple jump and placing third in the long jump.  Kafourou's jump this afternoon was a little more than three inches shy of her Bronco record of 20 feet, 8.5 inches that she set last year.
