The Broncos boast the third-lowest team scoring average in the league in 2012-13, averaging 306.6 strokes per round. Boise State is also one of just two Mountain West teams to win a tournament this year (Fresno State), having won the Cowgirl Classic April 8-10, the school's first outright tournament victory in nearly 13 years.

Young, a senior, earned individual medalist honors at the Cowgirl Classic, and her seven-stroke victory was the second-widest margin in school history. Her scoring average of 75.13 this season qualifies as the lowest in school history, and ranks third in the MW.

Harper, also a senior, has recorded two top-25 finishes this season, including a tie for eighth place at the Rose City Collegiate (Oct. 1-2), the best tournament finish of her career.

Boise State's freshmen trio of Ford, Martin and Pless ranks 21st-nationally in the Golfstat Freshman Class Impact Rankings.

Ford finished tied for fourth place at the Cowgirl Classic, a career best. Pless has recorded three top-25 finishes in four spring tournaments, and has four such efforts in her debut season with the Broncos. Martin's scoring average of 76.74 ranks second on the team in 2012-13, and qualifies as the seventh-best single-season mark in school history. She has five top-25 efforts this season.
