SALT LAKE CITY -
Another track and field meet. Another personal best for the University of Wyoming’s McKenzie Brogan. The senior ran 1:00.03 in the 400-meter hurdles on Friday at the Utah Spring Classic to pace a group of four all-time top 10 marks for the program on the day.
Brogan has run the 400-meter hurdles at three meets this season and has improved her time in each attempt. Her effort on Friday helped her win the event and move up to seventh in Cowgirl history, while ranking 55th in the NCAA this season. Junior Cassidy Meade was impressive as well, as she placed fourth in the 800 meters in 2:10.34. The personal-best time moved her up to fourth in Cowgirl history in the event. Freshman Sofia Hof cleared 5-5 3/4 in the high jump, good for 10th in Cowgirl history. The Wyoming women also got event victories from freshman Ja’la Henderson in the long jump at 19-3 1/2 and junior Mikalah Skates in the 100-meter hurdles in 14.10.
Junior Jordan Charles paced the Wyoming men with a victory in the 110-meter hurdles. His personal-best time of 13.99 keeps him fifth in Cowboy history, while ranking first in the Mountain West and 30th in the NCAA this season. Freshman Bryce Ailshie was less than a second away from UW’s top 10 in the 800 meters with a time of 1:50 on Friday, good for second in the race. The time ranks first in the conference and 41st in the nation this season. Senior Dylan Morin was runner-up in the 5,000 meters in 15:02.
