Record Boise State Group In Sacramento

Boise State did not win the WAC in either men's or women's track & field, but their stars are among the best in the nation. A record nine Broncos will compete this week in the NCAA National Track And Field Championships in Sacramento. Qualifying begins today in Sacramento.

A record nine Boise State student-athletes are entered in the NCAA National Track & Field Championships that get underway today in Sacramento.  Eleni Kafourou qualified in both the long jump and triple jump.  Joining her on the women's side is Annika Hjelm and Becky Guyette.  Representing the Bronco men are javelin thrower Scott Viafore, hammer men Jarrod Stevens and Simon Wardhaugh, Forest Braden in the 5,000, Erik Whitsitt in the shot put and Zacharias Arnos in the triple jump.


Five Broncos are ready to go today in qualifying events.  Viafore is slated to throw in the javelin at 10:30 this morning, Hjelm begins her quest for the hammer title today at 11, Stevens and Wardhaugh are in the men's hammer at 1:30 this afternoon, Kafourou competes in the women's long jump at 5:30 and Forest Braden is in the semifinal of the men's 5,000.


Whitsitt is scheduled to compete in the shot Thursday at 5:15.  There is no qualifying in the women's 10,000, so Guyette will compete in that final Thursday night at 8:40.


Arnos competes in the men's triple jump at 1:45, while Kafourou also competes in the women's triple jump Friday at 3:15.
