Some productive stuff from last week. Let’s go!
Game Ball One:
Kora Wade (softball)
The Broncos could not avoid a series sweep of San Jose State. But they did take the a 2-1 against the UNLV Rebels. And Ms. Wade was a big part of that. Wade had one run, two hits, and one RBI in the 6-1 over UNLV. Congratulations to Wade on being awesome.
Game Ball Two:
Shani Remme (gymnastics)
This one was a bit of a gimme for two reasons: 1) Ms. Remme was the only Bronco gymnast to compete last week because, well, she was the only one at the NCAAs; 2) she is pretty darn good at what she does. Setting Boise State records just doesn’t come by merely showing up. She’s going to go down in the history books as one of the greatest Boise State gymnasts. And for good reason.
Game Ball Three:
Allison Jeffries (pole vault)
Ms. Jeffries won the pole vault at the Mt. SAC Relays. And she did it by beating another athlete from the SEC (I assume all the other SEC-affiliated athletes just started the S-E-C chant). Congratulations to Ms. Jeffries.
Game Ball Four:
Camden Stoddard (pole vault)
Not to be outdone, Mr. Stoddard also won the pole vault at the Mt. SAC Relays. And he also went up against an athlete from Ole Miss. That is both hilarious and awesome. Congratulations to Mr. Stoddard on pole vaulting at an ESS-EEE-SEE speed!
Game Ball Five
Sierra Nobley / Sabryn Roberts (beach volleyball)
The Broncos had a bit of a rough go over the weekend. Going 1-2 against some Pac-12 opponents. The Broncos beat Oregon, then fell to California and Stanford. The duo of Ms. Nobley and Ms. Roberts won two out of their three matches. And were the only ones to walk away from the Stanford matchup with a win. Great win for these Broncos.
We are getting close to the end of the year. About a month left to go in this whole thing. Anyone else stick out?
