The Boise State men’s cross country team came in sixth place while the women’s team came in eighth at the NCAA West Regionals in Sacramento, California on Nov. 13. 

2021 Mountain West Champion Senior Dario De Caro paced the men’s team in the 10k to finish in eighth place with a time of 29:53.7. 

“Dario battled down the homestretch,” said head coach Corey Ihmels. “That was the highlight of the day.”

Freshman Ahmed Ibrahim (30:05.5) and senior Logan Rees (30:11.6) trailed closely behind De Caro, coming in at 15th and 18th place respectively.

“We need to get better,” Ihmels said. “We had a few bright spots. Dario ran well on the men’s side. Ahmed ran well. Logan ran well.”

For the women’s team, senior Olivia Johnson was the first Bronco to cross the finish line for the 6k. Johnson came in 26th place with a time of 20:33.9.

Behind her was junior Tyler Beling who came in 38th place, senior Yukino Parle in 42nd place, sophomore Ines Borba in 47th place and freshman Yasmin Marghini in 61st place.

De Caro, Ibrahim and Rees all earned U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) All-Region honors for finishing in the top 25.

On Nov. 13, Boise State announced that De Caro, Ibrahim and Rees all qualified for NCAA Nationals in Tallahassee, Florida on Nov. 20. These three Broncos will compete individually during this meet.
