Boise State athletes collect national honors

Brian Losness-USA TODAY Sports

This is award-season time for a lot of winter sports. As such, Boise State has some athletes that have earned some recognition.

Three Boise State gymnasts earn All-America honors

The governing body of collegiate gymnastics (NCGC/W) have recognized the the work of Krystine Jacobsen with a first team All-America honor on the Uneven Bars. She tied for first in the nation with a Regional Qualifying Score (RQS) of 9.95.

Sandra Collantes and Maddie Krentz both received second team All-America honors on the Floor, both with 9.925.

As a comparison, Alabama (one of the teams competing against Boise State in the regionals on April 2nd and the top seed) also had three athletes qualify for All-America status. Two first teamers and a second team.

California, the second seed in the regionals, had one athlete make the list. A first team selection.

With the fantastic season the gymnasts had this year, it was only a matter of how many the Broncos would have selected.

Congratulations to these Broncos!

James Webb earns all-district honor

In what should be a surprise to no one, James Webb has picked up another honor. This sets up Webb for an opportunity to pick up All-America honors. As competitive as the basketball field is for these accolades, Webb being snubbed would be a shocker. One would expect that Webb should get at least honorable mention honors like Derrick Marks did last year. Especially after the statistical numbers that he put up for the Broncos.

Congratulations to Webb and we look forward to more announcements like this for Webb.
