POCATELLO -- Anse Myller DeAraujo won the triple jump in his second-straight meet to lead the BYU men's track and field team at the Idaho State Shoot Out on Friday.

DeAraujo, a sophomore, took the top mark in the triple jump for the second time after winning the event in the BYU Invitational last weekend. DeAraujo improved on his attempt of 48-08.75 last week with a jump of 49-00.25. Sophomore Kyle Mills finished second behind DeAraujo with a 46-08.25.

In the 400m, senior Bryan Payne came in as the runner-up at 49.19 while freshman James Derek McAllister finished two spots later at 49.91.

Senior Robert Harrison had two top-five finishes in the mile and 800m, finishing second and fifth, respectively. Harrison improved his mile time by almost five seconds from last weekend. Joining Harrison in the mile was sophomore Josh Adams, who finished fourth with a time of 4:21.34.

In other events, junior Chris Little took second in the pole vault (16-00.00), Trevor Heiner was third with a 6-07.00 in the high jump, and Mills and sophomore Brett Birkeland finished fourth and sixth, respectively, in the long jump.
