Martin, Settle, Multis Show Out in Outdoor Debuts at Oregon, Westmont

Pocatello, ID - The 2024 outdoor season has begun for Idaho State Track and Field, and a group of Bengals ventured out into the wild to start making their mark on Division 1 track.

The women's heptathlon team, led by standout freshman Josie Settle, competed strong in the Jim Klein/Barbara Nwaba Multis. Settle, an all-conference athlete from the indoor season, shined in her collegiate outdoor debut, taking first place in the multis on the weekend. She recorded three first place finishes in the 100m hurdles (14.74), long jump (5.78m - 18'11.75m), and high jump (1.69m - 5'6.5"). The lattermost of which was a personal best, while the long jump time is 9th-best in school history for outdoor.

Sophomore Kaila Mederios recorded a personal best of total heptathlon points with 4069 to finish fourth. She was bolstered by strong performances in the 100m hurdles (15.74) and 200m (26.55), both of which were top five marks.

Up north in Eugene, Oregon, Multiple-time Big Sky Champion Kyndal Martin took her talents to the home of the Ducks, competing in the 100m hurdles at the Oregon Preview alongside fellow Big Sky member Eastern Washington and Pac-12 talent in Oregon and Oregon State.

Martin raced to a top three finish alongside the best in the PAC-12 with a time of 14.06 seconds, which is currently a top 100 time in all of Division 1 track.

Up next will be another pair of dual meets for the Bengals with some travelling to Orem, Utah to compete in the Utah Valley Invitational on Friday, March 29. The Orange and Black will also be heading back to California to make their debuts at the Stanford Invitational from March 28-30.
