BOISE, Idaho The Boise State University swimming and diving team capped off its inaugural home meet with the closest dual of the season, Saturday, against the University of Nevada.
The Broncos fell to the undefeated Wolf Pack by only two points (113-111) in a relays and diving only meet at the Boise City Aquatic Center/West Family YMCA.
“We had great support from the community this weekend,” head coach Kristin Hill said. “I believe they are excited to have a local collegiate swim team.”
Leading the charge for the ever-improving Bronco program was senior Jennifer Dorling, who continues to improve her diving scores. After setting a personal best score of 227.95 on the one-meter board at Friday’s meet, Dorling once again raised the bar, posting a score of 230.85, Saturday. On the weekend, Dorling won three of the four diving events.
“The girls have improved so much since December,” Hill said. “I just want to continue to help these girls become the best swimmers and divers they can be.”
In another Boise State first, Hill handed out the first Bronco Award to Holly Chatelain. The Bronco Award is given to the Boise State swimmer who goes above and beyond the call of duty. Chatelain posted victories in the 200-yard individual medley (2:29.43) and the 500y freestyle (6:03.04), Friday.
The Broncos conclude their regular season duals at the University of Idaho, Jan. 26, and at Washington State, Jan. 27.
