About The Opposition
The Lobos did capture a two-game sweep at Colorado State two weeks ago, but that success was sandwiched around a pair of sweeps at home at the hands of Fresno State and most recently, UNLV.
The trio of Chelsea Johnson (.435, seven HR, 26 RBI), Mariah Rimmer (.422, 13 doubles, seven HR, 33 RBI) and Jasmine Casados (.366, 11 doubles, three HR, 36 RBI) paces New Mexico at the plate, while in the circle Colette Robert is 8-7 with a 4.36 ERA and 48 strikeouts.
The all-time series between Boise State and New Mexico is even at 6-6. The Lobos swept the Broncos in Albuquerque last year, although at home Boise State is 5-1 against New Mexico.
Last Time Out
Izzy Serrano led the Broncos with six hits and batted .667 during the series. Teauna Hughes batted .364 (4-for-11) with a pair of doubles, while Makenzie Sullivan hit a grand slam in Sunday’s contest.
Hughes Keeps Hitting
For the season, Hughes leads the Broncos in batting (.373), hits (44), doubles (10), RBI (36), slugging percentage (.678) and on-base percentage (.436).
In Mountain West play, Hughes is second on the team with a .413 batting average, and has accumulated five doubles, four homers and 14 RBI over 15 conference games.
Despite battling a preseason injury most of this season, Hendrickson is batting .309 and is third on the team with five homers and 24 RBI. Her team-leading 16 walks have also helped put her on-base percentage at .430, second-best on the team.
This past weekend at Utah State, Serranocame off the bench in Friday’s opener and went 2-for-2. Her performance earned her starts in the next two games, and she went on to lead the Broncos with six hits over the weekend, going 6-for-9 (.667).
In Mountain West play, Serrano is just as productive, ranking third on the team with a batting average of .385 and fourth with an on-base percentage of .442.
