Remme Named Boise State Athlete of the Week

April 23, 2018

BOISE, Idaho – Junior Shani Remme was named Boise State Athlete of the Week after earning First Team All-America honors on balance beam at the NCAA Gymnastics Championships last week.

The junior earned First Team All-America honors on the beam as she scored a 9.900 to tie for fourth place on the event in the second semifinal session, good for seventh over both semifinal sessions. The score ties Amy Glass (2012) for the highest beam score at the NCAA Championships in program history.

Remme reset the program’s NCAA Championships all-around score that she set at last year’s event (39.3625), finishing with a score of 39.375, good for 10th best in the second semifinal and 18th overall in the all-around competition over both semifinals sessions. That 18th-place finish bests her 19th place finish in 2017.

Remme started her day on floor exercise, finishing with a score of 9.8125, the sixth-best floor routine in program history at the NCAA Championships.

She then moved on to vault, where she scored a 9.825, the third-best vault score at Nationals in program history.

After a bye, Remme rotated to uneven bars, where she collected a score of 9.8375, good for 25th-best in the second semifinal, also good for the fourth-best bars routine at the NCAA Championships for any Bronco.

The Loomis, Calif., native then closed out her NCAA Championships with her best routine of the night, a First Team All-America worthy routine as she scored a 9.900 to finish tied for fourth in her semifinal and seventh overall, tying the program-record score at Nationals on the event. It is her first NCAA Championships All-America honor of her career.

The Broncos finished the 2018 season ranked 16th in the nation.
