Sierra Nobley led Boise State to 2-1 overall mark at the Boise State Invitational where they lost 3-0 to No. 10 BYU, before defeating Sacramento State 3-2 and Missouri 3-0.

The native of Scottsdale, Ariz., led the Broncos on the weekend with a team-high 73.5 points on 71 kills and five block assists, while hitting 24.4 percent. She also led the Broncos in kills during all three matches (tied vs Missouri) and recorded a pair of double-doubles in the wins versus Sacramento State (32 kills, 14 digs) and Missouri (16 kills and 12 digs) earning her all-tournament team honors. Nobley averaged 6.68 points, 6.45 kills (both team highs) and 0.45 blocks per set during the three matches.

For her performance over the weekend, Nobley was named Mountain West Offensive Player of the Week.

Raimee Sherle (So. | Forward | Meridian, Idaho) - Women's Soccer
Raimee Sherle scored the game-winning goal in the 61st minute of Sunday's 1-0 victory over Oklahoma thanks to a perfect pass from Addison Standlee. Sherle tracked down the deep ball and played a chip shot from 20 yards out over the head of the Oklahoma keeper to give the Broncos the decisive 1-0 advantage. The goal was the second of the season for the sophomore and the sixth game-winning goal of her career.

Avery Williams (R-Fr. | CB/PR/KR, | Pasadena, Calif.) - Football
What a debut it was for redshirt freshman CB/PR/KR Avery Williams in Saturday's 24-13 season-opening win for the football program. Just a minute and a half into the contest, Williams fielded a punt at the Bronco 19, weaved through would-be tackler and took it 81 yards for a touchdown on his first collegiate touch. The return was the fifth-longest in Bronco history, and his 124 punt-return yards over five chances in the contest marked the sixth-highest total in program history. Williams went on to return a kickoff for 48 yards to the Troy 41 late in the second quarter, setting up a field goal which gave the Broncos a 17-10 lead heading into halftime. For his performance, Williams was named Mountain West Special Teams Player of the Week.
