Boise State Broncos Krystine Jacobsen, Maddie Krentz and Sandrra Collantes Earn All-America Honors
BOISE, Idaho--Senior Krystine Jacobsen earned 2016 All-America honors while Maddie Krentz and Sandra Collantes were named Second Team All-America by the National Association of Collegiate Gymnastic Coaches today. It marks the first time in school history that three Broncos were honored in the same season.
Jacobsen finished the regular season tied for #1 in the nation on uneven bars with a Regional Qualifying Score of 9.950. Jacobsen is the first Bronco to finish the regular season ranked first in any event in Boise State gymnastics history.
"We are so proud of Krystine," said co-head coach Tina Bird. "Another one for the Boise State record books -- finishing the regular season ranked first on bars! Krystine is amazing."
Jacobsen set a new single-season record with nine victories on uneven bars, while her 14 career wins on the apparatus is tied for second in school history. Jacobsen recorded 9.975 three times this year, including last weekend at the Mountain Rim Gymnastics Championship to win the league title.
"Krystine has worked tirelessly over the last four years to upgrade her dismount, improve her technique and perfect her form," said co-head coach Neil Resnick. "It all came together for her and we are happy to celebrate her achievement."
Krentz and Collantes both earned spots on the second team after finishing the regular season tied for 12th on floor with an RQS of 9.925.
"Sandra and Maddie were consistently amazing all season," said Resnick. "We are proud of their accomplishments and leadership."
Boise State competes next Saturday, April 2 at the NCAA Tuscaloosa Regional as the #3 seed.
