    This season the Broncos return 14 of its 17 All-MW swimmers from 2013-14, and six NCAA Championships participants in Brittany Aoyama, Jessica Bottelberghe, Heather Harper, Sydney Johansen, Katelyn Martin and Sam Wicks.

    Boise State opens the new season at the Boise West YMCA Oct. 8 against Utah, before hitting the road for two more dual meets by the end of the month. The Broncos are set to visit Idaho (Oct. 11) and Oregon State (Oct. 31).

    The swimmers close out the 2014 calendar year in Minneapolis at the Jean Freeman Minnesota Invitational from Dec. 5-6.

    The New Year gets underway Jan. 2 with a dual at conference rival San Diego State before the relay teams stick around for the USD Relay Meet on Jan. 3. The quick start to 2015 concludes Jan. 8 at Denver.
