Sherle Named National Player of the Week
Oct. 24, 2017

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – After being recognized as the Mountain West Offensive Player of the Week yesterday, Raimee Sherle picked up another accolade with the United Soccer Coaches naming her the NCAA Division I Women’s Soccer National Player of the Week Tuesday. This is the second time a Bronco has earned the weekly national recognition, as Brooke Heidemann (Sept. 9, 2014) also collected the same distinction.

Sherle is just the fourth Mountain West women’s player to be recognized by the United Soccer Coaches since the honor’s inception in 2010. She joins Heidemann, Utah State’s Jeannie Woller (Sept. 22, 2015) and Fresno State’s Julia Glaser (Oct. 17, 2017).

The sophomore recorded 11 points last weekend thanks to five goals and one assist, bringing her season point total to 36.

The 36 points ranks her No. 3 in the NCAA while her 15 goals is also tied for third in the nation. She continues to lead the NCAA in game-winning goals (8), as well.

In addition, her 11 goals in conference play is a new Mountain West record, surpassing the previous mark of 10 (Kaitlyn Lomsnesc - Wyoming 2014)).

The Meridian native propelled the Broncos to a pair of victories last weekend in defeating Nevada (3-1) and UNLV (6-1).

Boise State plays its regular season finale this Friday, Oct. 27 at 3 p.m. in Logan, Utah against Utah State.

Currently tied for third in the Mountain West standings, the Blue and Orange can grab the No. 2 seed if they beat the Aggies, and New Mexico (currently second) ties with San Diego State (tied for third) in their game Friday night. Any other result will give the Broncos the No. 3 or 4 seed at next week’s Mountain West Tournament (Oct. 31 – Nov. 4) in Las Vegas.
