Pokes Compete in 10K Races as MW Championships Begin

CLOVIS, Calif. – Redshirt freshman Christopher Henry placed eighth in the men's 10,000 meters Thursday night as Wyoming track & field started the 2018 Mountain West Outdoor Track & Field Championships in Clovis, Calif., at Veterans Memorial Stadium. Henry notched a team point for the Cowboys, finishing as the top freshman in the race.

"Chris (Henry) had a little bit harder day on the track today but he fought hard to score," UW assistant coach Scott Dahlberg said late Thursday night. 
 
Henry clocked in at 30 minutes, 24.52 seconds in the second 10,000 meters of his career. Meanwhile, sophomore Ashley Bock took 12th in the women's 10,000 meters, checking in at 37:02.03. Senior Quinn DeStefano was right behind Bock, taking 13th at 37:05.72.

"I feel both of the girls put themselves in the mix from the beginning amongst some of the best distance runners in the country," UW associate head coach Amanda Clower said of Bock and DeStefano.
 
The 2018 Mountain West Outdoor Track & Field Championships continue Friday. Cowboy senior Damon Unland looks to defend his title in the men's hammer throw, which will start at 4 p.m. MT along with the women's shot put as the first true field events of the meet. Track events will start at 5:30 p.m. MT with the qualifying run of the women's 1,500 meters.
