The Boise State men's golf team put together one of the best fall seasons in program history, building off of the success of last year's team
Senior Donny Hopoi notched the first victory of his career, while the team established a new school record for a three-round score.
France is just the third Bronco to finish in the top 10 at the MW Championships.
His second-round score was tied for the lowest of the day.
The senior is tied for 13th after the opening round.
Boise State claimed the Del Walker Intercollegiate title in February 2017, the program's first tournament team crown since October 2013, and finished third at the 2017 Mountain West Championships, the program's top Mountain West finish since joining the conference in 2011-12. The Broncos finished the event at 16-under, just two strokes behind champion UNLV.
Under Potter's tutelage, freshman Brian Humphreys would go on to claim medalist honors at three events in his debut season, including becoming the first freshman to win the Mountain West individual championship. Humphreys shot 12-under to capture a two-stroke victory over teammate Donny Hopoi (-10), earning an automatic invitation to the NCAA Regional at Stanford, where he became the first Bronco since T.K. Kim in 2013 to play at a regional.
Potter has overseen Broncos finishing in the top 15 at each of the past three Mountain West Championships, as Ty Travis finished tied for 15th at the 2015 event, and Logan France came in eighth in 2016 before Humphreys and Hopoi went 1-2 in 2017.
Shane Allor and Logan France were named Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholars in 2014-15, the first such honor for a Bronco in five years. Boise State also placed six individuals on the Spring Academic All-Mountain West Team, and had five golfers receive 2014-15 MW Scholar-Athlete Award recognition, one of the highest academic honors bestowed by the conference.
Potter joined the Broncos from Washington, his alma mater, where he served as an assistant coach during the 2012-13 and 2013-14 seasons.
In his two seasons with the Huskies, Potter helped coach two individuals to the No. 1 position in the World Amateur Golf Rankings - Chris Williams and Cheng-Tsung Pan. Williams, originally from Moscow, Idaho, earned the Ben Hogan Award in 2013, the most prestigious award in collegiate golf. He also received the McCormack Medal in 2012 as the leading player in the World Amateur Golf Rankings.
Pan, a junior with the Huskies in 2013-14, competed in the 2013 U.S. Open and qualified for the 2015 edition of The Open Championship at Royal Liverpool.
Potter helped lead Washington to top-16 finishes at the NCAA Championships in both 2013 and 2014. The Huskies also concluded the 2012-13 season ranked sixth-nationally in Golfstat, and 11th-nationally in 2013-14. Washington finished runner-up at the 2014 Pac-12 Championships, and took third place at the league tournament in 2013.
Seven Huskies earned All-Pac-12 recognition with the help of Potter's guidance, three were named All-America and one was named Academic All-America.
In 2013, Washington signed the nation's eighth-best recruiting class, and in 2014, the Huskies signed two of the top three high school seniors in Washington and the top-ranked recruit in British Columbia.
Originally from Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, Potter played collegiate golf for Washington from 2000-04, earning a bachelor's degree in political science.
