Husky Classic - Friday Results
SEATTLE, Wash. - Miler Haller earned the opportunity to run in the fastest 5,000m heat of the night at the Husky Classic and the redshirt freshman took advantage, running a 14:07.68 to become the third-fastest Bronco in school history in the men's indoor 5K.
Haller took 14th in a stacked heat that featured several All-Americans and one 15-time NCAA Champion, Oregon's Edward Cheserek. The Edmonds, Wash., native held his own and used a strong last 1,000 meters to secure the career-best time.
With the 14:07.68, Haller surpasses Bronco legend Jose Uribe (14:08.76) for the No. 3 spot in the school record book. Uribe was a two-time All-American for Boise State from 1995-97.
Rhys Park also enjoyed a solid day on the men's side as he ran a 14:18.10 for an indoor 5K personal record.
Brenna Peloquin led the way for the women in the 5,000m and ran a 16:24.38 in the fastest heat of the night. Megan Lacy clocked her fastest 5K time in the past two years with a 17:08.65 and Gracie Tostenson crossed the line in 17:06.46.
With the 5,000m action completed for the weekend at the Husky Classic, it will be the mile and 3,000m runners competing tomorrow in Seattle.
The majority of the team will host the team's final home indoor meet of the season with the Boise State Challenge set for tomorrow (Saturday, Feb. 11) at the Ford Idaho Center. The first event will begin at 9 a.m.
