Boise State Swim Team Hosts Idaho Saturday in Season Opener

Coach Kristin Hill, which built her program from scratch at Boise State, and now heads into her sixth season with the premiere swimming and diving program in the Northwest, leads the Broncos against Idaho this Saturday night in he season opener.

16 letterwinners from the two-time defending Western Athletic Conference Champions return for Coach Hill, including WAC Swimmer of the Year Amber Boucher and Stephanie North.  Both Boucher and North competed at the 2011 NCAA Championships, the first student-athletes in Boise State history to do so. 

The meet gets underway at noon Saturday at the Boise-West Family YMCA just off of Cloverdale and Chinden.  Admission is free and the first 25 Boise State students get a free t-shirt.  Can't beat that!
