- The Mountain Rim Gymnastics Conference announced the weekly award winners for week five of the 2017 season on Monday and Boise State was able to win at least a share of four of the five awards for the second-consecutive week. 

Shani Remme was the MRGC Gymnast of the Week after winning the all-around last Friday against Southern Utah with a 39.450. The score is tied for the 21st-best all-around score in school history, and is also a career high for the sophomore. The native of Loomis, Calif., also was named the Balance Beam Specialist of the Week after winning the event outright thanks to a 9.9 against the Thunderbirds.

The Gymnast of the Week honor is her second of the season and the Balance Beam Specialist of the Week nod is her third straight.

Ann Stockwell earned co-Vault Specialist of the Week honors thanks to a season-high 9.875 on the apparatus. She also won the conference title on vault at last year's MRGC Championship.

Diana Mejia and Sandra Collantes tied for the win on bars to both earn co-Uneven Bars Specialist of the Week after earning 9.9's. It is the second-straight weekly recognition on bars for Mejia and the first-career weekly nod for Collantes for her work on bars.

The performances from the honorees guided the Broncos to a convincing a 197.025 - 194.325 victory over Southern Utah last Friday night at Beauty and the Beast in front of 2,987 fans. The 197.025 ties for the fourth-highest team score in school history.

The Broncos were buoyed by another monster night on uneven bars (49.400) and balance beam (49.250). The performance on bars tied for the ninth-best score on the event in school history and the score on beam was a season best.
