The Broncos played in the Rainbow Wahine Invitational in 2012, finishing in seventh place as a team with a total of 911 (302-302-307, +47). Martin, then a freshman, and Hayley Young led the team with 13th-place individual finishes (226, +10).

Martin fired a course- and school-record 9-under 63 in the final round of the Price's "Give `Em Five" Invitational in Las Cruces, N.M., Oct. 8, capturing a share of her third-career tournament victory - the most in school history. Martin finished with a three-round total of 10-under 206, shattering the Broncos' previous record by eight strokes. Her 9-under 63 bested the previous school mark by five shots.

Junior McKenzie Ford (70, -2) and sophomore Dana Clary (71, -1) also recorded sub-par final rounds, and junior Sammie Pless carded a 2-over 74. The three scores, combined with Martin's 9-under 63, contributed to the lowest score of the tournament, and the lowest score in school history. The final-round 278 (-10) broke the school record set just Tuesday during the second round (285, -3). Boise State hadn't fired a sub-par team score in school history, but notched back-to-back rounds of better-than-par in the second and third rounds at the tournament.

At 860 (297-285-278, -4), Boise State finished in second place, breaking the school's three-round scoring record by 22 strokes. The Broncos also finished a tournament under-par as a team for the first time in school history. Ford joined Martin in the top 10, finishing tied for ninth with a 54-hole total of 215 (75-70-70, -1). Clary finished tied for 25th with a 221 (77-73-71, +5).
