Athlete of the Week 10/5-11: Stephanie North
BOISE, Idaho – Stephanie North led the Boise State swimming and diving team to their best start in program history to earn this week’s Bronco Athlete of the Week honors. The Broncos went 5-1 this weekend at the WAC Shootout and took down three-time defending WAC champions, Nevada, on the first day of competition.

North ended the 2008-09 season by becoming the Broncos first-ever WAC champion when she won the 100 free at the WAC Championships. That was only for the beginning for the sophomore, who opened her second season in the same dominating fashion. North recorded 16 first-place finishes, including 10 solo first-place finishes, against scoring opponents. She also earned three overall titles during the two day event to lead the Broncos.

The Broncos home-opener will be this Saturday (Oct. 17) against Washington State at the West YMCA at 1 p.m. The soccer and volleyball teams will continue their conference schedule this week while the football team travels to Tulsa on Wednesday. The cross country teams also get back into action with a meet on Saturday.
