Broncos Host Lady Techsters Friday and Saturday
Boise State softball will play host to Louisiana Tech in a Western Athletic Conference series, Friday and Saturday, at Mountain Cove Softball Field.

The Lady Techsters (11-25, 2-4) won their series at Nevada last time out. Louisiana Tech was swept by Fresno State in its first conference series.
The three-game set begins with a single game Friday, followed by a Saturday doubleheader. First pitch is scheduled for 3 p.m. (MT) Friday, and 1 p.m. (MT) Saturday.
Boise State is 3-1 in April, after picking up 15 wins in the month of March, a single-month school record. The Broncos are perfect in eight home games this season.

About the Broncos
After a 2-8 start, Boise State posted a school-record 12-game winning streak behind dominant pitching. The Bronco pitching staff combined for a staggering 0.65 ERA in the last 10 games of the streak, a span that included a 41-inning scoreless streak.
The win streak helped the Broncos win 15 games in March, a single-month school record. Boise State kept the momentum into the first weekend of April, winning a conference series at San Jose State 2-1, and taking a single game at Saint Mary's.
Juniors Allie Crump and Aubray Zell lead the team in the circle. Crump sports a 10-5 record with a 3.97 ERA. Three of Crump's losses have come at the hands of top-25 opponents. Zell led the charge during the win streak, now with a 7-1 record and a 1.94 ERA. Zell has not lost since Feb. 12. She is benefiting from not making mistakes. Zell has allowed the fewest home runs in the WAC, and ranks 15th nationally in walks allowed per seven innings.
Sophomore Lela Work has appeared in a team-high 20 games, coming on in relief 18 times. Work also has an ERA below 4.0, at 3.57. Work is 4-5 on the season, but ranks second in the nation in saves with six.
Devon Bridges is enjoying a breakout freshman campaign, pacing the Bronco offense. Bridges is batting .422 with nine home runs and 35 RBI, leading the team in each category. She has reached base safely in 25-consecutive games. Bridges has two grand slams this season, making her the only player with multiple career grand slams in school history. She has thrived at home, hitting .650 with eight home runs and 17 RBI in eight games at Mountain Cove Softball Field.
Sophomore Holly Bourke has joined Bridges as the Broncos' hottest hitters since conference play started. Bourke is batting .486 with 17 hits in the last 10 games. She has scored nine runs and driven in 10 during the span with a home run and four doubles. Bourke is tied for the team lead with 12 multi-hit games this year.
