2018 Schedule

BOISE, Idaho –
Looking to continue the upward momentum from last year’s postseason appearance, the Boise State softball team has scheduled stiff competition for the 2018 season, the team announced Wednesday.

The Broncos – who reached the Ogden Region finale of the NISC – will compete in five tournaments to begin the season. The tournament slate features six teams who finished 2017 in the top 100 of the nation in RPI, led by NCAA tournament participant – Tennessee.

“The high level of competition we played in our fall schedule will prepare our team for the super competitive season we will face in pre-season, and in an even more contested conference schedule,” head coach Cindy Ball said. “With high expectations from last season, we look to be very competitive this season.”

Boise State will open the season in Tempe, Ariz., at the Kajikawa Classic, Feb. 8-11. The Broncos will play six games in Arizona, with RPI top 100 opponents including Tennessee, Northwestern and Stanford.

A return trip to the Demarini Classic in Las Vegas, Nev., Feb. 16-18, will be Boise State’s second test of the season. The Broncos will play five games, with opponents being UTEP, Iowa State, Buffalo, Long Beach State and Hawai’i.
