WOMEN'S TEAM RANKED NO. 20: The United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) announced the 2017 NCAA Division I Women's Preseason National Team Rankings for the indoor season earlier this week, and the Boise State women cracked the top 25 at No. 20. The Broncos are the highest ranked women's team in the Mountain West Conference.
The rankings were determined through a formula that considered preseason data and specific standards for marks and times. Athletes who possess the qualifying marks and times from previous indoor seasons who still have eligibility for this upcoming indoor season were considered in the calculation of the rankings.
Five Boise State athletes and one relay team recorded the necessary times and marks in previous years to attain preseason ranking consideration; Allie Ostrander (3,000m and 5,000m), Brenna Peloquin (3,000m and 5,000m), Minttu Hukka (5,000m), Jordan Ward (high jump), Courtney Hutchinson (shot put) and the DMR team all made the list.
TOP TIMES: Sadi Henderson enters the weekend with the third-fastest 800m time in the country for this season (2:09.31), which is also the second-fastest time in school history. Anna McDonald's 9:58.38 in the 3K is currently the 27th-fastest in the nation.
Dusty Fisher leads the way for the Broncos on the men's side, holding the 17th-fastest 400m time thanks to a 48.17 last month. Fellow sprinter Alexandru Terpezan possesses the 22nd-best 200m time (21.73).
