BOISE, Idaho - Utah State's men and women's track and field teams placed 12 athletes in the top six of their respective events on Friday, day one of the Boise State hosted All-Idaho Cup at the Dona Larsen Park in Boise, Idaho.
Sophomore Nic Bowens, junior Bryce Hall and freshman Briton Page led the way for USU with second-place finishes in the men's 200m, discus throw and 1,500m races, respectively. Bowens clocked a time of 21.27, while Hall threw the discus 49.14m (161-03) and Page crossed the finish line with a time of 3:55.47.
On the women's side, junior Kylie Hirschi was the top placer as she finished third in the 400m hurdles with a time of 1:01.72.

Sophomore Brittany Bushman rounded out the top-six placers for the Aggie women with a sixth-place performance in the 1,500m (4:43.84).
"Today was a preliminary start, a start of a few events for the weekend," veteran Utah State head coach Gregg Gensel said. "We showed pretty well with Nic Bowens in the 200m and Briton Page in the 1,500m. We had some good performances by our throwers. So, we are looking forward to tomorrow in what we are doing."
Other top-six finishers for the USU men included sophomore Eric Shellhorn, who placed third place in the 1,500m with a personal-best time of 3:56.24. Freshman Kevin Allen and sophomore Michael Cardinal placed third and fourth in the discus with tosses of 46.68m (153-02) and 46.47m (152-05), respectively.
