Eight Broncos Earn All-MW Honors
May 14, 2018

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - The Mountain West announced the Men's and Women's  Outdoor Track and Field All-Conference Teams Thursday afternoon, and the Broncos picked up a total of nine all-league honors - seven on the women's side and two for the men. All-conference selections were awarded to the top-three finishers in each event at this past week's championships.

Allie Ostrander led the way with two honors as she won the 5,000m and took second in the 1,500m. Between cross country and track and field, the redshirt sophomore's win in the 5K gave her the fifth individual conference title of her career while her two all-league honors from this past week give her 10 for her career.

Alexis Fuller's first-place performance in the 1,500m was her fifth individual conference title and continues her recent dominance in the general distance, as she also won the mile earlier this season at the MW Indoor Track and Field Championships.

Bryce Kirby and Yusuke Uchikoshi both defended their outdoor titles in the 100m and 3,000m steeplechase, respectively. Kirby and Uchikoshi now each have five career all-league honors.

Sadi Henderson was able to record a runner-up finish in the 800m and pick up her eighth career All-MW honor while Kristie Schoffield's third-place performance was the first all-league honor of her career.

Anna McDonald (3,000m steeplechase) and Clare O'Brien (10,000m) took third in their respective races. McDonald's finish gave her the second all-league honor of her career while O'Brien - a sophomore - already has six to her name.

The team will now wait and see how many athletes qualify to the NCAA West Preliminary Championships, which will take place May 24-26 in Sacramento, Calif. The NCAA will make the announcement this Thursday.
