Broncos Keep Stranglehold On WAC With Win at San Diego
BOISE, Idaho – Another strong performance from the Boise State swimming and diving team resulted in another dual win over a WAC rival. This time, the Broncos downed San Diego 235.5-134.5 by winning every event except the 200 back and both diving events.

“We had another strong day of racing today,” said head coach Kristin Hill. “The team knew it would be important to take control of the meet from the start and we did that well. It's good to see them swim fast at this phase of the season.”

Both relay teams cruised to victories as both the 400 free relay team and the 200 medley relay team brought in the top spot. In the long distance events of the 1000 free and the 500 free, the Broncos finished 1-2 and 1-2-3, respectively. Jennifer Cahill led the charge with a first-place finish in both events. Rachael Meisner finished second in both events while Paige LaPorte took third to complete the sweep in the 500 free.

Amber Boucher continued to have a phenomenal week as she took first in two more events, taking the top spot in both the 200 free and 100 fly. Emily Irvin swept the breaststroke events for the Broncos as did Stephanie North in the sprint freestyle events. Christine Raininger also brought in a pair of victories in the 200 fly and 200 IM to help the Broncos cruise to victory. Morgan McLain also took the top spot in the 100 back.

The Broncos are entering the final stage of the season as they only have two more duals left on the schedule before the WAC swimming and diving championships. The Broncos will host in-state rival Idaho on Jan. 23 at 1 p.m. at the Boise-West YMCA. The dual season will wrap up a week later when New Mexico State makes the trip to Boise on Jan. 30 at 1 p.m.

“We look forward to our final two dual meets back in Boise as we finish preparing for our championship phase of the season,” commented Hill.
