This news had dropped yesterday, but better to save it for its own day than to clutter it with all of the information from yesterday.
The Bronco volleyball team has been a terrific run through the conference slate. They are on a six-match winning streak and have yet to drop a set. Last week was another testament to how the Broncos are rolling as they beat up on New Mexico and no. 25 UNLV in straight sets. That effort did not go unnoticed as the Broncos swept the Mountain West Conference player of the week awards.
Ms. Maddi Osburn has been an integral part of the Broncos’ success this year in the Libero position.

Ms. Sierra Nobley, surprisingly enough, has “only” been selected as the Offensive Player of the Week twice this year.

Which is saying something considering the impact Ms. Nobley has on each match for the Broncos.
The Broncos are starting their ascent through the NCAA RPI, just recently getting to no. 37. The Broncos need to continue this trajectory if they hope to make the NCAA tournament after missing out last year.
Congratulations to both of these great athletes.
