Last Time Out

Just Two Back Of The Leaders
Through the first nine games of Mountain West play, Serrano is second on the team in batting (.321), hits (nine) and doubles (two). This past weekend against Utah State, she led the team with six hits, batting .600 against the Aggies and starting both scoring rallies in Sunday’s 4-2 win.
Broadus Saves Broncos From A Sweep, Again

This past Sunday, Broadus went the distance against Utah State, allowing just three hits and striking out 10 in Boise State’s 4-2 win.
