May 21, 2015

SKILLMAN, N.J. - crowd

Boise State women's tennis ranked No. 7 nationally for total attendance this season, the Intercollegiate Tennis Association announced with the release of its 2015 ITA Attendance Race results. The Broncos drew 2,001 fans to their 12 home matches and the average attendance of 167 spectators per match ranked 10th in the country.

"This is truly an incredible accomplishment for our program and Bronco Nation," said head coach Beck Roghaar. "Playing the sport you love in front of so many people who care about, and support, you is what makes college tennis such an incredible experience for our athletes. It's goosebumps stuff for our players when they hear the roar of our crowd after a big point, and the memories they take with them from this experience are made even better by having the support we do. It's not lost on us how lucky we are to have such great fans as part of Bronco Nation. The energy, enthusiasm, and love our fans bring is second to none!"

The Broncos also finished in the top 10 of total attendance in 2014, but this is the first season Boise State has cracked the top 10 in average attendance, in the eight-year history of the race.

"To have one of the top attendances in the country is a testament to Bronco Nation and the direction of our program," said Director of Athletics Mark Coyle. "Our tennis programs have a rich history of tremendous support from the community and our fans. That backing, along with our first-class facilities, make Boise State an exciting place for collegiate tennis."

Boise State played five of its 12 home matches at the Appleton Outdoor Tennis Center, while seven were held in the Boas Indoor Tennis Center. The Broncos went 8-4 at home on the season and are 26-10 over the past three seasons.

"If you look at our home record, not only this year but over the past few years, the effect our crowd has on helping us win here in Boise is clear," Roghaar said. "From the bottom of our hearts we'd like to thank everyone who comes out to support us in our efforts to become a perennial college tennis powerhouse. We are on the rise, and we are so grateful and fortunate to have you all as part of our program as we continue to pursue our goals on the court. Please know how special it is for us to have Bronco Nation there alongside us. It means the world to our players as well as our staff."

The Boise State men ranked eighth and ninth in overall and average attendance, respectively.
