Boise State junior Emma Bates won the women’s 10,000 meters on Thursday at the NCAA track and field championships in Eugene, Ore., in 32 minutes, 32.35 seconds, the second-fastest time in meet history.
Bates’ finish was second only to the 32:28.57 run by Sylvia Mosqueda of Cal State Los Angeles in 1988.
Washington’s Lindsay Flanagan was 14th in 33:32.33, just ahead of teammate Megan Goethals in 33:32.66. The All-America honor is the ninth for Goethals, giving her more All-American awards than any Husky in history.
