Boise State swimming and diving takes second at MW Championships over the weekend

In what would become a back and forth battle between two very good squads, the Broncos were edged out by the second smallest margin since Boise State took the championships in 2012 by five points.

The Broncos overcame a large deficit from the diving portion of the championships to actually take the lead on Friday and setting up an epic showdown between themselves and Nevada. And, unfortunately for the Broncos, Nevada took the crown with 664 points to Boise State's 651 with a pretty impressive overall performance.

And from Head Coach Kipp:

Sam Wicks earned a pretty great award with the Mountain West Swimmer of the Year. Which is pretty darn cool.

And Boise State swimming and diving Head Coach Jeremy Kipp also wins the Mountain West Coach of the Year award in his first year at the helm.

The Broncos were able to take home a lot of hardware from this meet. Lots of great swimmers have some good futures ahead of them. Though the Broncos were edged out by Nevada, the performances by the Broncos were nothing to shake a stick at.

Up next for the Broncos are the Zone E Diving Championships from March 7th through March 9th. Then the NCAA Championships March 18th through the 20th. Hopefully the Broncos will be able to bring home a few more trophies and get deep into the extremely competitive NCAA field.
