Broncos champion Emma Bates captures NCAA 10,000-meter title with 2nd-fastest time in history

Boise State University's most dominant track and field athlete in school history has won the 10,000 meters at the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships at Eugene, Oregon.  Eight-time All-American athlete Emma Bates is the first BSU woman from the Mountain West since 2000 to win the 10,000 Meters national championship. Thursday night’s win gives Boise State its seventh national title in men’s and women’s track and field history, and the university's ninth individual NCAA national championship overall.

With a time of 32 minutes, 32.35 seconds Bates outdid Alabama-Birmingham's Elinor Kirk (32:32.99) to win the event. Her time was the second fastest in meet history, and was only 3.78 seconds from breaking the NCAA Division I championship record set by Sylvia Mosqueda , Cal State-Los Angeles, in 1988 with a time of 32:28.57. She would like to break the record next year.

Bates joins Eleni Kafourou (indoor Long Jump - 2009) as the only two Broncos to ever win national titles for the Boise State women’s track and field team.

Bates will make a run at the 5,000 on Saturday, an event she finished seventh in last year.
