Hittin The Track, Week of January 25th

Another big weekend of indoor track action and some more great performances from Montana atheltes.

At the MSU Duals in Bozeman on Friday night the performance of the night was probably from Gardiner native John Ricardi and his 4:13.60 mile win. The Idaho State senior followed that up a couple of hours later with an 8:39.60 in the 3000 for 2nd place. Both performances were good as qualifiers for the Big Sky Conference Championships.

Katrina Drennan of UM ran her second sub-5:00 mile in two weeks to win the mile (4:57.81). She scored a double win with a 2:17.62 in the 800 meters.

There were quite a number of BSC qualifiers at the meet. The full results are at

On the Big Stage, Courtney Babcock of the Mountain West Track Club (and head XC coach at UM) ran a 4:39.56 mile for 6th place in the Millrose Games Mile in New York City.

The Frost Fever Frozen Frolic 5K was held in Missoula this morning. If I can find results of the race, I'll post them here.

See you on the roads, tracks and trails
