Big Sky Outdoor Championships Day Three

Moscow, ID – The last task needed before heading to the first round of the NCAA championship: Conference title.

Dan O’Brien track and field complex is the host site of the 2018 Big Sky Outdoor Championships.

Thursday was the championship day for field events.

Early in the day, a meet record was already broken.

Northern Arizona’s Brooke Anderson set the Big Sky championship meet record in the hammer throw.

She threw 227, about six feet longer than the record (a record she held).

Idaho did well in the men’s shot put.

Coming off an indoor shot put championship, sophomore Zach Short will have an outdoor title as well, throwing 59 feet and 7.75 inches.

That was good enough for him to win the gold in that event.

Idaho’s Austin Beyer took third place in the men’s javelin, later in the day.

Not only did he PR, throwing 212 feet, he won the bronze medal, making that his first Big Sky medal.

Jumper/sprinter Rechelle Meade had yet another strong outing in the long jump, winning bronze with a 19 foot 5.5-inch jump (on her first attempt).

The medal just adding to the list of her accomplishments while in Moscow.

The 10Ks ended the night, both men’s and women’s.

Men were up first and from the start, it was clear who’d take this one: Southern Utah’s Aidan Reed.

He flat-out dominated this one, leading essentially the entire time.

Reed came in first and it would be another 28 seconds before second place would come in.

After the third day, the Vandals aren’t in contention to win the meet.

The men are 10 place, holding just 10 points.

The women are last, having seven.

Montana State lead the men with 44 point and North Dakota leads the women with 52.
