Broncos end season with a win for the first time
Boise State defeated Fresno State March 21, in a thrilling 10-inning game. The Broncos scored the last three runs of the game, including the game winner on a bases-loaded squeeze bunt in the 10th inning.
Boise State scored 10 times in the first three innings en route to a 10-2 win in five innings against Nevada, May 9, to open the series. Makenna Weir's bases-loaded double in the third broke the game open.
Boise State softball took on San Diego State April 21, in the rubber match of a three-game series. The Broncos jumped out to a 3-0 lead before SDSU battled back to tie the game. Once again Boise State came up with some seventh-inning magic, getting a walk-off home run from Tara Glover to win the game 5-3, and take the series two games to one.
Boise State rallied in the seventh inning to force extras against San Diego State in game two of the conference series April 20, at Dona Larsen Park. The Aztecs prevailed 3-2 in eight innings on the strength of three solo home runs.
