Admittedly, OBNUG tends to be a little pre-occupied with the so-called “money sports”...heck, we’re contractually obligated to be. However, we try our darnedest to highlight the awesomeness of all Boise State student-athletes and you should know by now that our women’s swimming and diving squad more than fits that bill. Last night, they won their second-straight Mountain West title (and 4th since 2012) in San Antonio, TX—edging out San Diego State and Nevada in the process—BONUS!
The Bronco ladies racked up 1,250 points over the four day event—over 100 points more than rival SDSU (1,105.5) and over 200 more than Nevada (1,033.5)...and no, I still don’t know how you get half a point. This year’s total wasn’t quite as high as their 2017 title in College Station where they tallied 1,390 points (more than 200 more than runner-up San Diego State), but they got that trophy and that’s really all that matters.
Too many Broncos to list won individual titles (you can check out all the results HERE) but on the final day of competition, Boise State was able to seal the MWC title with two key wins—Abbey Sorenson in the 200-yard backstroke and the 400-yard freestyle relay—a race they’ve won 4 years straight. Boise State now has SIX swimming and diving titles (4 in the MWC and 2 in the WAC) and has won 50% of the championships they’ve ever been a part of (Boise State S&D kicked off with the ‘06-’07 season). I’d say that makes our gals some of the most successful student-athletes on campus and you will address them as such!
Way to go (again), ladies!
