Boise State Game Balls for week of February 19th

Softball: PGF Nationals Championship (14U + 16U)-Beverly Bandits v South Dakota Renegades Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

Softball is in full swing. Basketball is starting to turn towards March Madness. Track and field of the indoor variety is winding down. Let’s review some performances of the last week.

Game Ball One:

Christina Washington (softball)

The softball team has been on an absolute tear as of late. Especially to the tune of a 10-game win streak to get themselves a pretty snazzy 11-2 record as of last last Saturday. To cap off the week’s festivities? Ms. Christina Washington throwing the Broncos’ first-ever perfect game. Which, I am told, is kind of a big deal. The 11 wins so far is an impressive feat. Considering the Broncos, last year, only won 14 games all season. The Broncos are riding high and, hopefully, it continues.

Game Ball Two:

Yaiza Rodriguez (basketball)

The Bronco senior has been somewhat quiet this past year. But in last week’s games, she came through with 15 points and five assists in the win against Nevada (both team highs), and 16 points and seven assists (led assists for the Broncos) for a win against San Jose State. She is going to ride off in the Bronco sunset this next Saturday. Wish her the best of luck.

Game Ball Three:

Paris Austin (basketball)

Mr. Austin has been a force off the bench for the Broncos. Garnering starting minutes/points with the change. He came dangerously close to a double-double against Nevada with nine points and nine assists. Then, against the San Jose State Spartans he scored 18 points with only two assists. He is a fun Bronco to watch and look forward to seeing him continue his path.

Game Ball Four:

Sadi Henderson (track & field)

Ms. Henderson has been lighting up the Boise State and Mountain West record books in the 800 meters this year. And at the indoor championships, it has been no different. She won the 800 meter championship on her own and as a team in the Distance Medley Relay with Clare O’Brien, Amy Pfaff, and Alexis Fuller. The wins also gave Ms. Henderson All-MWC selections. So pretty good if you ask me.

Game Ball Five:

Shani Remme (gymnastics)

Anytime you go down to Alabama and challenge the Crimson Tide in any sport, you’ve done a good thing. While the Broncos, as a team, did fall to the Tide 196.925 -- 196.675 Ms. Remme worked her magic in the all-around with a score of 39.375. Which she did walk away with the crown in the dual. Remme has continued her run of domination in her field and we all look forward to that continuing.

Your Turn

Another week of some solid Bronco performances. Anyone else?
