Boise State Athlete Of The Week Poll

Oct. 9, 2017

BOISE, Idaho - Boise State Athletics wants to get Bronco Nation involved in celebrating the performances of our student-athletes, so we are giving Bronco fans the chance to vote on the top Boise State performer each week!

Follow @BroncoSports on Twitter, and vote in our Twitter poll for your Boise State Athlete of the Week every Monday morning, and the occasional Tuesday morning, should a holiday fall on a Monday.

This week's (Oct. 2-Oct. 8) nominees are:

Emma Chard (Sr. | Tacoma, Wash.) - Women's Swimming & Diving
Chard and the Broncos rolled to a 167-122 victory over Idaho in Saturday's season opener at the Boise West Valley YMCA. Chard, a senior from Tacoma, Wash., was one of two Broncos (along with Ally Kleinsorgen) to pick up a team-high four victories at the meet.

In addition to being part of Boise State's victorious 200 medley and 400 free relays, Chard picked up two individual wins, taking the 100 breast in 1:05.13 and the 100 free in 51.65. Chard's effort was instrumental to the Broncos winning 15 of the 16 events at the meet.

Aubree Chatterton (Fr. | Forward | Boise, Idaho) - Women's Soccer
Chatterton found the back of the net in each of Boise State's matches this weekend as the Broncos came away with four crucial points from a 1-1 draw against top-of-the-table Air Force and a 3-2 win over Colorado College.

Friday, Chatterton scored in the 56th minute to put the Broncos up 1-0 on Air Force, and she opened Sunday's scoring against Colorado College in the 26th minute, starting what would become a flurry of three goals over an eight-minute span.

Alejandra Lobelo (Fr. | Bogota, Colombia) - Women's Golf
Lobelo posted her first-career top-10 finish in just her second collegiate tournament, finishing tied for 10th at the Chip-N Club Invitational in Lincoln, Neb. from Oct. 1-3.

Lobelo bounced back from an opening-round 81 to shoot rounds of 73-77 over the final 36 holes, closing the tournament at 15-over (81-73-77=231). Her performance paced the Broncos as Boise State finished sixth in the team standings at a combined 941 (323-305-313, +77).

Kekoa Nawahine (So. | Safety | Meridian, Idaho) - Football
Nawahine helped pace a strong Boise State defensive effort Friday night as the Broncos defeated BYU, 24-7.

With the game tied at 7-7 in the second quarter and BYU opening its drive at its own 46, Nawahine quickly snuffed out the Cougars' opportunity by intercepting Tanner Mangum's pass and returning it 51 yards to the BYU 22. Nawahine's pick, his second of the season, set up a 20-yard field goal from Haden Hoggarth that gave the Broncos a lead which they would never relinquish.

For the game, Nawahine led the Broncos with nine tackles (seven solo), as the defense limited BYU to just 66 yards rushing on 23 carries.
