BOISE, Idaho-Boise State softball swept College of Southern Idaho in a double header Saturday at Mountain Cove Softball Field.

Playing with free substitutions and expanded batting orders, Bronco Head Coach Erin Thorpe mixed and matched lineups to give the staff a chance to see different players all over the field.  

"We are going to use this fall to figure things out and see how we play as a team," Thorpe said. "You are going to see a lot of versatility from us in the fall because we are going to put the best team on the field come spring."

Christina Capobianco powered the Broncos in the opener with a three-run home run in the sixth inning. Allie Crump worked the first four innings, striking out five Eagles. Crump was relieved by Aubray Zell who struck out four and allowed two hits over the final three frames.

In the second game, the two teams swapped four-run innings before the Boise State bench exploded with a pair of home runs in the fifth. Georgia Behne hit a two-run shot, and two batters later Lela Work sent a solo home run over the centerfield fence. Starting pitcher Morgan Barnes went four innings for the Broncos. Work finished the game facing the minimum across three innings and striking out four.

Boise State returns to the field for another double-header Sunday against North Idaho College. First pitch is at 9:30 a.m. at Mountain Cove Softball Field.
