Last Time Out
The Broncos opend the weekend with a 1-0 loss to CSUN Friday, but bounced back to earn a split for a day with a 4-0 shutout of Santa Clara.
Saturday’s game against CSUN was suspended due to darkness with the Matadors up 9-0 in the top of the fifth, and concluded Sunday morning, with CSUN capturing a 16-1 win in five innings. The tournament then concluded with the Broncos falling, 6-5, to Weber State. The scheduled contest against Santa Clara was canceled due to travel curfew.
Time To Bounce Back
Washington Gets Another Shutout
However, the shutout brings Washington to within one of tying the Boise State single-season record, accomplished thrice by a total of two Bronco hurlers: Aubray Zell (2011-12) and Rebecca Patton (2014).
Plenty Of Hittin’
Cervantes leads the group with a .489 batting average, and has proven such a dangerous presence at the plate that she’s earned the respect of opposing pitchers, drawing a team-high 14 walks. Against Weber State this past Sunday, Cervantes, for the second time this season, drew four walks in a game, tying her own Boise State single-game record.
