My, what a week, huh? Soccer was in action. The cross country teams ran. Volleyball continued to dominate. And something happened with the football team. Lots of stuff, so let us get to it.
Game Ball One:
Janelle Flores (soccer)
Ms. Flores has continued to be a metaphorical brick wall for the Broncos. Last Sunday (October 23rd) she helped lead the Broncos to a 2-0 win against Nevada. This sealed the Broncos’ appearance in the Mountain West Conference tournament. Boise State did run into a bit of trouble against Utah State last Friday (Broncos got rolled 6-1). But, while the win would have been nice, it was mostly for seeding purposes. At any rate, Broncos should be able to keep it going in the tournament.
Game Ball Two:
Dana Clary (golf)
The Broncos participated in the Lady Mustang Intercollegiate in Arroyo Grande, California last Sunday. The team took seventh overall. While Ms. Clary led the Broncos with a two round 156. That was good enough for a tie for 21st in the overall standings. Tough out, but she was able to represent.
Game Ball Three:
Sierra Nobley (volleyball)
When say ‘awesome’ you’re going to say ‘Bronco volleyball.’ And, well, you would be right. The Broncos are on an 8-win streak and seven of those eight wins have been via straight set sweeps. They are currently set for a tie for first place with a 9-2 conference record. Ms. Nobley is a yuuugggeeee part of that. Frankly: there probably isn’t just one Bronco that has been instrumental for this whole thing. But she’s an integral piece.
Game Ball Four:
Yusuke Uchikoshi (cross country)
Mr. Uchikoshi is a Mountain West Conference champion. Not just on the team, but individually. He won the overall race while leading the Broncos to the championship. The competition was pretty fierce as the Colorado State Rams were the ones were the actual favorites to win the team banner. But, nonetheless, Broncos reign supreme.
Game Ball Five:
Jeremy McNichols (football)
In short: Mr. McNichols still did a good thing despite the loss. 143 yards rushing and two touchdowns just aren’t “for nothing.” It is a bummer those stats came with an L, but whaddayagonnado? McNichols continue to be a beast. And that is all we can ask of him.
Ok guys. Let’s hear it. Who else stood out to you?
