Jacobsen Headlines All-America Honorees
March 25, 2016

BOISE, Idaho -- The National Association of Collegiate Gymnastic Coaches/Women (NACGC/W) announced their 2016 All-America list on Friday, and three Broncos -- Krystine Jacobsen (uneven bars), Maddie Krentz (floor) and Sandra Collantes (floor) -- received All-America honors. The three Boise State gymnasts on the list represent the most single-season All-America honorees in school history.

Jacobsen earned first-team honors after finishing the regular season tied for first in the country on uneven bars with an RQS of 9.950, making her the first Bronco to end the regular season ranked first in any event in school history. She becomes the third Bronco to earn All-America honors on the apparatus, joining Ciera Perkins (2015 -- second team) and Julie Wagner (1995 -- did not indicate first or second team at the time).

"We are so proud of Krystine," said co-head coach Tina Bird. "Another one for the Boise State record books -- finishing the regular season ranked first on bars! Krystine is amazing."

The senior from Virginia Beach, Va., finished the regular season with nine victories on uneven bars to set a new single-season school record. Her 14 career wins on the apparatus is tied for second in school history. The MRGC Uneven Bars Champion recorded a school record 9.975 on three occasions this season.

"Krystine has worked tirelessly over the last four years to upgrade her dismount, improve her technique and perfect her form," said co-head coach Neil Resnick. "It all came together for her and we are happy to celebrate her achievement."

Krentz and Collantes both received second-team nods after concluding the regular season tied for 12th on floor with an RQS of 9.925. The pair joins Ciera Perkins (2014) as the only three Broncos to earn second-team All-America honors on floor in school history.

Krentz -- a senior from Cave Creek, Ariz. -- and Collantes -- a redshirt sophomore from Lima, Peru -- both recorded career-high 9.95s in two meets this season. The two Broncos were named MRGC Floor Co-Champions last weekend, propelling Boise State to the team title in the final rotation.

"Sandra and Maddie were consistently amazing all season," said Resnick. "We are proud of their accomplishments and leadership."

The All-America honors are the first for all three gymnasts. Boise State will compete next Saturday, April 2 at 3 p.m. (MT) at the Tuscaloosa Regional in Tuscaloosa, Ala., as the No. 3 seed.
