Boise State Sweeps Three on Saturday
April 23, 2016

BOISE, Idaho - Boise State beach volleyball battled through poor weather conditions Saturday to closed the 2016 season with a sweep of three exhibition matches over Northwest Nazarene, Southern Idaho and the College of Idaho in Boise. Boise State did not drop a point in the three contests as the Broncos opened with a 4-0 victory over NNU, then followed with wins against CSI and the College of Idaho by 5-0 scores.

“It is always nice to play here in Boise in front of our fans,” said coach Shawn Garus. “I thought that all of our players performed well today. Our facility is really great and we love hosting here. I look forward to seeing our program and the sport grow in the area in the years to come. I hope in the future we will get better weather for a home tournament, but overall I thought it was a good day for us and a great event.”

Senior Sarah Baugh closed out her career with three victories while paired with a different partner for each contest. The senior from Poulsbo, Wash., finished her final season at 9-5 overall even though the three exhibition wins today will not figure into her career record.

All 11 Broncos played this afternoon and contributed to the three victories. Coach Garus switched the lineup today for each contest compared with what its was during the regular season, giving the players a chance to play with different members of the squad. It was a good look at the future of the program with Boise State expecting nine of the players back for 2017.

If you include the exhibitions into their season records Kaitlyn Oliver and Maddi Osburn both finished the year at 11-3, both went 3-0 this afternoon. Laney Hayes and Jaymee-Lee Bulda went 2-0 Saturday and both finished 2016 at 10-3.

Joining Baugh at 9-5 is Sierra Nobley who also went 3-0 today playing two matches at No. 2 pair and one at No. 1.

Maddy O’Donnell and Hannah Hubbard both went 3-0 during the tournament, while Sabryn Roberts, Katie Hall and Emily Sullivan each went 2-0.

Boise State finished the regular season last weekend at 5-6 overall, the Broncos went 4-0 in exhibitions - including a 5-0 victory over Hawaii Pacific - to give them an unofficial mark of 9-6 in 2016.
