Boise State Golf Team Competes in Mountain West Championship

The Boise State men's golf team has had its share of bad luck this year.  As a golfer myself, I can completely identify--sometimes the ball just doesn't go where you want it to go.  But the team competes in the Mountain West Championship beginning tomorrow, and hopefully the team will peak at the right time.

The tournament gets underway tomorrow morning in Tucson, Arizona.  Teams will play 18 holes each day, Friday through Sunday.

Boise State Coach Greg Patton Named Mountain West Tennis Coach of the Year

Legendary Boise State tennis coach Greg Patton has earned another conference Coach of the Year honor, according to the Mountain West.

Patton helped reinvigorate the Boise State tennis program, leading the #38 Broncos to the regular season Mountain West title and the tournament championship as well.  Patton, in his 16th year as the head man at Boise State, earned his 10th conference coach of the year award.  Patton has won the honor in the Big Sky, the Big West, the Western Athletic Conference and now the Mountain West.

Patton will lead the Broncos into their 15th NCAA Tournament next weekend, as the Broncos take on Florida State in Athens, Georgia, May 12.

Way to go Coach!

Do or Die for the Lady Broncos

The Boise State softball team dug a hole with two losses to Colorado State, then dug deeper with a home loss to New Mexico.  To find their way out, the Lady Broncos have to sweep a weekend series in San Diego against four-time defending NCAA Tournament participant San Diego State.

Boise State, 32-16 on the season and 6-3 in Mountain West Conference play, must win at least two games of the three-game series to keep their conference championship hopes alive.  San Diego State finishes the season with three games at UNLV.  

The first game is set for Friday at 7 p.m. Mountain Time with Saturday and Sunday games scheduled for 2 p.m.  Saturday's game will be televised live on The Mountain, the first Bronco softball game ever to be televised nationally.
