Boise State Game Balls for week of October 9th

[TEXT INTRODUCTION]

Game Ball One:

Raimee Sherle (soccer)

Last week the Broncos split a pair of games, a 2-1 win against Fresno State and a 2-0 loss to San Diego State. In the win, it was Raimee Sherle doing her thing with a goal in the 57th minute. That is the fourth game-winning goal of the year, and her seventh overall. She has been putting quite the résumé together for a Mountain West Conference Freshman of the Year honoree. Hopefully it continues.

Congratulations Ms. Sherle!

Game Ball Two:

Maddy O’Donnell (volleyball)

Bring out the brooms because the Broncos have been sweeping the Mountain West Conference competition. The Broncos are on a four game winning streak (starting way back on October 4th against Air Force) and each win has been by 3-0 sweeps. And last week the Broncos continued that fantastic play by taking out San Jose State and Fresno State. Ms. O’Donnell had 26 kills over that span, which lead the team. The Broncos are sitting at 6-2 in conference right now and O’Donnell is a big part of that.

The awesome-athlete goes the Game Ball!

Game Ball Three:

Lilian Poling (tennis)

(Ms. Poling does not have a profile picture yet, so I am using this one.)

Ms. Poling is a true freshman and has been performing quite well in her first year of collegiate competition. In the ITA Mountain Regional Championships she made it to the round of 16 at the consolation draw. If she can keep up the good work, we may be seeing her here more often!

Game Ball One:

Brenna Peloquin (cross country)

It is almost weird to say out loud that Boise State, quite legitimately, has the no. 1 and 2 runners in the NCAA. And who is to say which is which right now? While we have not seen Ms. Allie Ostrander run this year, Ms. Peloquin has been putting away the trophies.

One race does not make you a champion, but putting away two does. So, a champion she is.

Game Ball One:

Jeremy McNichols (football)

Another no-brainer on this one. Putting the team on your back to rack up 217 yards and two touchdowns will do that. Sometimes you just have to wonder if Mr. McNichols would just run through a brick wall just for the fun of it. Either way, he’s gone super-human several times this year, and it has been glorious.

Your Turn

Well, guys, what do you think? Anyone else deserve a shoutout? Or some other performances we need to recognize? Let me know.
