Tara Fisher (GK | JR. | Eagle River, Alaska) -- Women's Soccer
The junior turned out a heroic effort on Friday at Utah State to secure a program-record 12th win of the season as the Broncos held on to defeat the Aggies, 2-1. Fisher was forced into action when starting keeper Janelle Flores had to come out out due to injury, with the Broncos trailing 1-0. Fisher stepped right in and held the Aggies scoreless through the final 75 minutes of play, coming up with five big saves as the Broncos finished off a 2-1 comeback victory.

Brett Rypien (QB | JR | Spokane, Wash.) -- Football
Rypien delivered a big performance as the Broncos enjoyed their best offensive output of the year, defeating Utah State 41-14 on the road. The Broncos rang up a season-high 533 yards of offense in the contest, led by Rypien who threw for 260 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions as he went 19-for-27. The victory was the team's fourth win a row and with an overall record of 6-2, the Broncos are bowl-eligible now for the 16th-straight season.

Abbey Sorensen (Free/Back | JR | Draper, Utah) -- Swimming & Diving
Sorensen led the Broncos as they defeated Mountain West rival Nevada 163-137 in a battle between the last two league champions. Sorensen paced the Broncos in the meet, bringing home victories in all four events she competed in the 50 free (23.32), 200 back (1:59.81) and both the 200 medley and 400 free relays.


Wilhelmina Palmer (FR | Stockholm, Sweden) -- Women's Tennis
Palmer won the blue flight title at the first-annual Barb Chandler Classic, defeating teammate Lilian Poling 6-3, 6-3 in the title match on Sunday. Earlier in the day, Palmer teamed up with Poling to win the doubles tiebreaker, 8-7(5). Overall the Broncos went 17-4 in the tournament, going 12-4 in singles and 5-1 in doubles.
