Bengal Distance Rewrites Record Book at Bryan Clay Invitational

The Bengals started the first day of the 2022 Bryan Chase Invitational with a bang. Molly Olsen, Keely Wolf, and Haven Lambrite all set new Idaho State top-10 times in the women’s 3000 steeplechase in a field that was stacked with strong competitors.

Molly Olsen finished the race with a time of 10:30.83, a new PR. Olsen, already on the top-10 list for the steeplechase, moved from seventh to fourth all-time.

Keely Wolf raced in the first heat for the Bengals. With a time of 10:38.97 Wolf ran the fifth-fastest time in ISU history before Olsen broke her record in the second heat moving Wolf back to sixth.

Haven Lambrite rounded out the distance group with the third new top-10 mark of the night. Lambrite ran the event in 11:09.24. This time puts Lambite at No. 9 on the ISU top-10 list.

Brianna Hagler finished day one of the Heptathlon Wednesday afternoon. The Bengal senior finished day one with a score of 3094 points. In the high jump section, Hagler finished sixth with a personal best outdoor height of 1.70m (5’ 7”).

The day ended with the men’s 10k race. Zac Montoya had a standout race for the Orange and Black. The Bengal senior finished with the third-fastest time in ISU track and field history, 29:41.68.

The Bengals continue tomorrow at the Bryan Chase Invitational with more distance events and the conclusion of the multis.
