Bates gives Boise State first title

  Emma Bates' time of 32 minutes, 32.35 seconds was the second fastest in meet history.

EUGENE, Ore. -- Boise State junior Emma Bates won the women's 10,000 meters on Thursday night in the NCAA track and field championships in 32 minutes, 32.35 seconds, the second-fastest time in the history of the meet.

Bates' finish was second only to the 32:28.57 run by Sylvia Mosqueda of Cal State Los Angeles in 1988. Bates is the first women to win an NCAA outdoor title for the Broncos.

UAB senior Elinor Kirk was second in the race that capped the second day of the championships at Oregon's Hayward Field.

Georgia sophomore Maicel Uibo won the decathlon with 8,182 points, and Texas' Johannes Hock was second at 8,092.

Uibo overtook Hock with a third-place finish in the final event, the 1,500. Hock finished in 12th.
