The volleyball team secured at least a share of the Mountain West Conference crown and will be going to the post-season. Football won, but will have to wait to see if anything else arises. The basketball teams were in action, but only one side saw some good luck/success last week. And the men’s cross country team placed while Brenna Peloquin just did what she does.
Game Ball One:
Brooke Pahukoa (basketball)
Ms. Pahukoa knows how to make the threes rain on the court. And she did so against the Portland State Vikings as she dropped seven three-point bombs to go with her “other” points (she made two two-point baskets, just to show the commoners she’s still in touch with the people). She is not afraid to put up a heat-check. It’s just to the detriment of the other team that she manages to drain it.
Congratulations to Ms. Pahukoa.
Game Ball Two:
Sierra Nobley (volleyball)
Ms. Sierra Nobley was an instrumental piece for a monumental moment for the Broncos. Last week the Broncos took down the Colorado State Rams in a thrilling 3-2 match. The Broncos battled back down 2-1 to take control of the Mountain West Conference. This was the first time the Broncos have beaten the Rams, and the first time they will be going to the post-season. The Broncos then wrapped things up, at Wyoming, to ensure at least a share of the title. These ladies are pretty awesome and looking forward to their post-season success.
Game Ball Three:
Jeremy McNichols (football)
One word: McWeapon. That about sums it up. I guess if we have to be specific about it: 206 yards rushing and four touchdowns. Not much left to be said except for: how come he has not even gotten a whiff of the Heisman?
Game Ball Four:
Brenna Peloquin (cross country)
Of all Ms. Peloquin’s accolades, one can only assume getting an OBNUG Game Ball is the most prestigious. Or close to it at least. Ms. Peloquin finished sixth place at the regional meet this past week in Sacramento. Good enough for an All-America nod. Her trophy case is going to be unwieldy by the time she’s done with Boise State. Maybe Olympian will be next?
Game Ball Five:
Yusuke Uchikoshi (cross country)
Mr. Uchikoshi also added an All-America title to his coffers. He led the Broncos to a 19th place finish as a team. He finished 18th. Running in circles is hard. And when you’re going against other people that also go really fast, it is fun to watch.
What another week this has been for the Broncos. Hope to see all of the good stuff continues.
