Soccer vs Washington State (Aug. 30, 2015)q

Boise State women's soccer hosted Washington State Aug. 30, 2015, in the home opener for the Broncos.

Jim Thomas is in his sixth year at the helm of Boise State women's soccer. Thomas took over the Bronco program Dec. 13, 2012, after spending five years as an assistant at Washington.

Boise State is coming off one of the most successful seasons in program history, as the 13-6-3 record in 2017 was the top season in program history based on winning percentage (65.9%), while the 13 wins also tied the program record for most wins in a regular season.

Thomas guided the team to a third-place regular season finish in the Mountain West thanks to a 7-2-2 record (the seven wins is the program record for conference regular season wins) and advanced to the semifinals of the Mountain West Tournament.

Raimee Sherle – the 2017 Mountain West Offensive Player of the Year – played arguably the best season for an offensive player in program history as her 18 goals and 42 points tied the Mountain West records and set new school records. As a whole, Thomas oversaw a Bronco offense that scored 38 goals in 2017 – the second most in school history.

Other notable team achievements from the 2017 season included the team logging just its third win over a team from a Power Five conference in school history with a 1-0 win over Oklahoma (Sept. 3) and putting together an eight-game unbeaten streak in conference play that is the longest in program history.

In his first season at the helm, Thomas led Boise State to a 13-7-3 overall record and the second-most conference wins (six) in the history of the program, marching all the way to the championship match at the Mountain West Tournament. At the time, the 13-win season was the first since 2009, and marked the third season the team finished with more than 10 wins.

In 2013, the Broncos led the conference in goals with 33 in 23 games, as well as goals against average (0.78). With their attacking style of play and solid defense, Boise State went undefeated against Pac-12 schools in 2013, for the first time in program history.

The Broncos returned to the conference tournament in 2014 after stringing together four-consecutive shutout victories to end the regular season, including an upset victory at San Diego State. The wins propelled the team to sixth place, clinching the final tournament berth on the final day of the regular season.

Boise State and then-freshman goalkeeper Janelle Flores posted a shutout streak of 433:42, spanning the final six games of the year. The strong finish helped Thomas and the Broncos finish with a 9-9-3 record.

Brooke Heidemann finished her career in 2015 as the third player in Mountain West history to make the all-league first team each of her four seasons. Heidemann also became the first Bronco to be named all-region, when she was honored by the NSCAA.

The 2016 season saw Thomas lead one of the best in-season turnarounds in the country. The Broncos went 5-3-3 in Mountain West play to make the conference tournament. The record-setting conference season came on the heels of a 1-7-1 nonconference mark, with all seven losses coming by one goal. Boise State posted five shutouts in Mountain West play, en route to a school-record eight league results. Sherlea – a freshman at the time – led the team in every offensive category as she garnered Mountain West Newcomer of the Year and All-MW First Team honors. Flores became the first goalkeeper in Boise State history to be named first-team all-conference.

Under Thomas, the Broncos have garnered 12 all-conference selections, five all-tournament honors and 46 conference all-academic awards.

Prior to Boise State, Thomas helped Washington to a 50-28-11 record since 2008, turning the program around after the Huskies went 12-43-5 during the three years prior to his arrival. During his five seasons in Seattle, Washington made four NCAA Tournament appearances including a run to the Elite Eight in 2010. Thomas' duties with the program included the coordination of recruiting some of the nation's elite youth talent as well as leading on-field training sessions.

Thomas has seen success at various levels in the soccer arena, spending time as head coach at the community college, high school and club levels. Over the past decade, he has spent time with both the Crossfire Premier Soccer Club and the Northwest Nationals Premier Soccer Club, garnering four State Championships.

Prior to joining the staff at Washington, Thomas headed the men's team at Edmonds (Wash.) Community College from 2005-07 and served as head coach of Seattle's Roosevelt High School boys' varsity team from 2000-05.

Thomas hails from Bangor, Wales and graduated from Glamorgan University where he was a member of the college team which advanced to the sweet 16 of the National Cup. He was a starting forward for three seasons, two of them as the team's top scorer.
