The spring (ha!) sports are in full swing. Basketball, tennis, swimming, track & field, you name it, it’s going on. So let us review some Game Balls!
Game Ball One:
Chandler Hutchison (basketball)
The Broncos hit a bit of a slide last week. Dropping two in a row, and then breaking up that streak with a win at San Jose State. The two game slide wasn’t for lack of effort on the part of Mr. Hutchison who recorded 14 points, and eight rebounds against New Mexico, and 15 points and eight rebounds against the Spartans. He has been having himself a solid year and I know we all would like to see him keep it up.
Congratulations Mr. Hutchison!
Game Ball Two:
Fred Green (wrestling)
The team struggles for the Broncos continue with two losses last week. One to California State Bakersfield and the other to Northern Colorado. But Mr. Green has been doing his part for the Broncos. In the Northern Colorado dual he defeated his opponent with a fall in 4:27. He then followed that up with a major decision win (14-6) against a California State Bakersfield opponent.
Congratulations Mr. Green!
Game Ball Three:
Brooke Pahukoa (basketball)
Ms. Pahukoa was on one last week. In the 75-68 loss against New Mexico she had 21 points and seven rebounds (second most for the Broncos that game). Against the Spartans Pahukoa recorded 23 points and six rebounds. Overall a pretty good week for the Bronco senior. Now to turn their sights to the Wolf Pack this upcoming week.
In the meantime, congratulations Ms. Pahukoa!
Game Ball Four:
Brittany Ayoama (swimming)
I might as well just leave a permanent spot here for the Bronco swimmer as she laid a proverbial beatdown in Wyoming (HA, TRY AND COME BACK FROM 173-127 WITH A SAFETY COWGIRLS!). Ms. Aoyama won four races in that dual. She then backed that performance up with three more wins against no. 22 Denver and Colorado Mesa. With the senior swimmer doing her thing, she’s helped the Broncos to a 6-1 record in duals. Boo and yeah!
Congratulations Ms. Aoyama.
Game Ball Five:
Shani Remme (gymnastics)
Ms. Remme has represented the Broncos well in her second season. In the quadrangular match against Utah, Denver, and Illinois-Chicago she recorded a team-best 39.275 in the all-around. While the Broncos came away with third overall, Ms. Remme would leave an impact on the conference (Mountain Rim Gymnastics Conference) with two awards: Gymnast of the week and the Co-balance beam gymnast of the week. Not too shabby.
Congratulations Ms. Remme.
