Lady Broncos 27 for 27

They may have stumbled on the road last week, but Boise State's softball team has now won 27 consecutive home games.  They'll need to keep that streak going to stay in the hunt for #1 in the Mountain West.

Thank-you for your interest in the project.  Obviously, the more people that view the site, the more pressure for me to come up with more material!  I enjoy it immensely and take seriously the importance of coming up with breaking news before anyone else and featuring articles, statistics and charts that you won't find anywhere else.

TCU, New Mexico Advance at Mountain West Tennis Championships

TCU, the team that took Boise State to the wire earlier in the month, whipped #5 seed UNLV to advance to the semifinals of the Mountain West Conference men's tennis championships against the Broncos.  That match is set for 11 a.m. tomorrow in San Diego.

Host San Diego State will take on New Mexico, which blanked #6 seed Air Force today 4-0.

Lady Broncos Hold Off New Mexico 8-5

Boise State rocked New Mexico pitching for five runs in the first two innings, then held on for an 8-5 victory this afternoon at Mountain Cove Field in Boise.

The Broncos, reeling from two upset losses to Colorado State, need to win to keep their Mountain West Championship hopes alive and the subsequent berth in the NCAA Tournament.  The MWC does not have a postseason, meaning the team that finishes first in the regular season gets all the honors.

Wins at a Premium for Boise State at Robison Invitational

The Boise State track team is having a tough time in Provo, although a few individuals have done well.

Will Lohman finished second in the shot put with a toss of 54-feet, 2-inches while Eetu Viitala finished second in the long jump (24-4.25).  Boise State's Alyssa Osai (185-10) and Nadine Russell (178-10.5) finished 1-2 in the women's hammer, outdistancing Anneli Stahl of the Pac-12's newest team, Utah, who managed 175-9.50 for third.

Kurt Felix and Alexi Morton, Boise State's multi-event stars, did not compete in those events this weekend, choosing to enter individual events instead.

Following the Broncos

Boise State has already had two members from the Senior Class of 2011 drafted in the first round of the NFL Draft.  Could more Broncos be chosen tonight?  Stay tuned.

The Bronco track team is at the Robison Invitational in Provo, Utah today.  The Boise State men's golf team is also in Provo for the Cougar Classic, their final tuneup before the Mountain West Championships.

The Boise State softball team, which lost two games at Colorado State last weekend, needs to win this weekend against New Mexico to keep their championship hopes alive.  There is no postseason tournament, so it's win now or stay home in the playoffs.  The first game is set for 3 p.m. at Mountain Cove Field, weather permitting.
