record setting day at idaho cup
Andre Archer won the men's triple jump, leading a record-breaking weekend for The College of Idaho track and field teams at the All-Idaho Collegiate Cup, hosted by Northwest Nazarene University in Nampa.
Archer broke his own school record with a leap of 46-2 1/2 - good enough to meet the NAIA "B" qualifying standard. It was one of seven school records to fall in the two-day meet, while 26 Cascade Conference qualifying marks were met.
Nick Hampton and Dominic Bolin became the first two C of I runners to hit the NAIA "A" standard this season, placing second and third respectively in the 800-meters. Hampton finished in a time of 1:52.72, with Bolin in 1:52.95 - both narrowly missing the school record.
Two other records fell on the men's side - as both the 4x100 (43.54) and 4x400 ((3:21.12) relay teams had quality performances.
On the women's side, Diamond Mitchell broke the 200-meter school record for the second-straight meet, taking fifth with her time of 25.51, while anchoring the 4x100 relay team to a time of 48.62 - just meeting the NAIA "B" standard. In the field events, Lexis Lange broke her own school record in the pole vault (8-8 1/4), while Melinda Fuimaono broke the javelin mark with a heave of 106-10.
A trio of Coyotes will next compete Thursday and Friday at the CCC Multi-Event Championships in Oregon City, Ore. - as Austin Basterrechea and Mike Hurd tackle the decathlon, and Jasmine Sibert will participate in the heptathlon.
