Aug. 26, 2016




2017 Schedule

The 2016-17 Boise State gymnastics schedule will feature another challenging combination of home and road meets against traditional national powers. The Broncos will face one SEC foe, two Pac-12 opponents and six teams who finished the 2015-16 season in the top 30 of the Road To Nationals rankings.

“We are super excited about our 2017 schedule,” co-head coach Tina Bird said. “We are going against some top teams in Utah, Stanford and Alabama, not to mention our strong MRGC opponents.”

The 2015 and 2016 Mountain Rim Gymnastics Conference Champions will start the year on the road in a quad meet at UC Davis that will also feature Stanford and Yale on Jan. 13. The Cardinal qualified to the NCAA Championships last year and finished the season ranked No. 10 in the country. The Broncos hold a seven-meet win streak against UC Davis, and it will be the first meeting against Yale.

Boise State will then compete at Utah in another quadrangular that will include Illinois-Chicago and Denver on Jan. 20. Utah also made it to the NCAA Championships last season, closing out the year at No. 9. The Broncos last topped Illinois-Chicago 196.325 – 191.950 at the Chicago Style Collegiate in 2014, and Denver is a former MRGC opponent who Boise State last faced in the 2015 conference championships, edging the Pioneers 196.625 – 196.075 for the title.

The Blue and Orange’s next meet on Jan. 27 will take place in Boise at CenturyLink Arena as a part of the Gem State Invitational. The two teams faced off last year in the same event with Boise State winning 196.400 – 195.100.

The first traditional home meet of the season (Feb. 3) will mark the 16th edition of the Beauty and the Beast, an event where the gymnastics team will compete side-by-side the wrestling team in the same meet. The Broncos will host MRGC rival Southern Utah. The two teams have faced each other 59 previous times with Boise State winning the most recent matchup at the 2016 MRGC Championships.

The bulk of February will find the Broncos on the road for three-straight meets. They’ll start with a dual at Denver (Feb. 11), followed by a meet at Utah State (Feb. 17) and close out against Alabama (Feb. 24) in Tuscaloosa. Boise State has competed against the Crimson Tide at Coleman Coliseum in each of the last two years.

The Broncos will then return home for the final two regular season meets of the season – rematches against Utah State (March 4) and Denver (March 10).

Boise State will move into the postseason with the MRGC Championships on March 18 in Logan, Utah hosted by Utah State. The Broncos will be looking to capture their third-straight MRGC title.

NCAA Regionals will take place on April 1 and the NCAA Championships are slated for two weeks later from April 14-16.

“Our goal is to continue to make Bronco history each season,” Bird said. “With the talent and work ethic that this year’s team is showing us, we’re confident we should reach our goals.”
