Sink or Swim for the Bronco Softball Team

If Boise State is going to return to being a championship contender, the Bronco softball team will have to prove it on the Islands against one of the top teams in the country.  Hawai'i had the experience and the pedigree, having competed in numerous NCAA Tournaments.

The two teams will hook up for one game Friday and a doubleheader Saturday.  Boise State is currently in third place, precariously ahead of the very team that is set to host them--Hawai'i.

Boise State Tennis Team in Third Place

One week prior to the Western Athletic Conference Tennis Championships in Boise, Bronco Head Coach Greg Patton finds himself in unfamiliar territory--third place.  Boise State will get an opportunity to play for seeding this week when they take on Nevada and New Mexico State in Las Cruces, New Mexico.

Boise State is favored over both, of course the Broncos did lose to Idaho while being favored.  Still, the team would like to gain some semblance of momentum heading into the tournament that they will host.  Boise State plays Nevada Friday at 8: 30 a.m. before challenging New Mexico State at 1:30.
