It was certainly the right way to start the season for Montana State as they hosted the first meet of the season. In the MSU Dual Meet Invitational Friday night, the Bobcats came away with a 95-52 win over Montana, and a 99-45 win over Idaho State for the men. On the women's side, MSU beat Montana 82-66, and Idaho State 79.5.
On top of the big wins for the school, there was one individual performance that certainly stood out. In the mile run, Heather Haug's time of 4:48.93 became 4:42.29 with the altitude adjustment, setting a new program record. The Livingston, Mont. native is now the owner of three program records. The previous record in the mile was 4:44.39, set back in 1988 by Theresa Zacher. Haug also holds the record in the 1,500 and the 3,000 steeplechase.
The Bobcats are back at home on January 25th for the MSU Open
