LOGAN, Utah – Twelve Utah State track & field athletes earned all-conference accolades a total of 19 times as the Mountain West announced its 2017 men’s and women’s Indoor Track & Field honors on Monday.
All-conference selections were awarded to the top-three finishers in each event of the 2017 MW Indoor Championships, which were held Feb. 23-25 in Albuquerque, N.M.
Among Utah State’s men, senior AJ Boully and freshman Michael Bluth, earned the most all-conference honors with three apiece.
Boully captured victories in the 400m (46.48), 4x400-meter relay (3:09.21) and a third-place finish in the 60-meter hurdles (7.85), while Bluth competed alongside Boully in the 4x400-meter relay, finished second in the 4,000m distance medley relay (9:49.24) and placed third in the 400m (47.18).
