The Boise State gymnastics team is moving on from its days in the Western Athletic Conference, but some things remain the same--the Broncos are the preseason favorite in the new Mountain Rim Gymnasts Conference.
Boise State received three first-place votes and 15 points to top the poll of the five league coaches, while the University of Denver finished second with the remaining two first-place votes. Southern Utah was third, followed by Brigham Young and Utah State.
Boise State returns 2013 WAC Freshman of the Year Maddie Krentz, as well as All-WAC performer Kelsey Black, from its WAC Championship squad of last season.
The 2014 Mountain Rim conference season will begin January 11, with the championship scheduled for March 22 in Provo, Utah.
