Thomee Wins NCAA Western Javelin Championship

Senior Pontus Thomee led a strong contingent of Broncos by winning the Western javelin Championship at the NCAA Western meet in Austin, Texas yesterday afternoon. Thomee advances to the NCAA National Championships in Eugene, Oregon.

Boise State's Pontus Thomee rose to the top against the best 48 javelin throwers in the west yesterday at the NCAA Western Championships in Austin, Texas.  The Bronco Junior sent the spear 236-feet, 5-inches on his third throw and it stood up to the best the west could offer.  The top 12 qualify for the NCAA National Championships in Eugene next month.  Kurt Felix (209-2) just missed qualifying for the finals and will now turn his attention to the high jump. 

Zacharias Arnos just missed qualifying for the National Championships in the long jump, placing 13th with a jump of 24-6.50.  

Freshman Rolando Trammel qualified for the finals in the 400-meter hurdles with a time of 51.93.  The only other Bronco to compete yesterday was Sasa Kampic, who unfortunately fouled on all three attempts in the women's javelin.  

Action continues today and tomorrow in Austin.  Here are the results from yesterday:
