Boise State Game Balls for week of May 8th

We are so close to saying goodbye to the year!

Winners winning a 5k!
Boise State Athletics

It's Game Balls time!

Game Ball One:

Elijah Armstrong (track)

The open the Mountain West Conference track & field championships, Mr. Elijah Armstrong did his thing, and quite well, to win the men's 10,000 meters. And he did so in dramatic fashion with a time of 30:08.25. He's the first freshman to win the event on the men's side for Boise State. Which is pretty awesome. And he's an Idaho-native from Pocatello! Always good to keep in-state talent and watch them succeed on the next level.

Congratulations to Mr. Armstrong!

Game Ball Two:

Brenna Peloquin (track)

Ms. Brenna Peloquin walked, or should I say ran, away from the competition in the women's 5,000 meters. She finished in front of the pack with a time of 16:05.99. And guess what? Ms. Peloquin is also a freshman. This is a lot of young talent that is coming up through the Bronco ranks. Peloquin, Ostrander, Armstrong. The future of Bronco long-distance is going to remain strong and should be fun to watch.

Ms. Peloquin, congratulations!

Game Ball Three:

David Elliott (track)

Mr. David Elliott added more accolades to his coffers as he won the 5,000 meters in a time of 14:06.70. He tried repeating a win in the 1,500 meters but, unfortunately, he clocked in a mere second place with a time of 3:51.24. We should all be so lucky to be able to run that fast. Anyway, the senior ends his final Bronco year on a great note that saw him be one of the best runners to put on a Bronco jersey. Next on Mr. Elliott's agenda (and quite a few other Broncos if we're being honest) are the NCAAs and, possibly, the Olympics?!

Congratulations Mr. Elliott on a storied Bronco career and enjoy a Game Ball!

Game Ball Four:

Izzy Serrano (softball)

The Bronco softball team had a bit of a rough year. Ending the season with a loss to San Diego State and finishing 14-38 overall. However the Broncos sure know how to hit! and Izzy Serrano was able to show up against the Aztecs with a three-run dinger. It was the first of the season, but it helped bring the Broncos within striking distance of beating the Aztecs (the score was 6-5 Aztecs after the homerun) but the Broncos eventually fell to SDSU 7-6. Ah well. Home runs are always awesome, and when they bring in three runs? The better.

Congratulations Ms. Serrano!

Your turn

The academic year is done and only the NCAAs left for the track & field team left to go. What are your Game Balls for the week?
