#19 Bronco Gymnasts Host Spartans Sunday

The Boise State gymnasts look to sparkle Sunday night when they host fellow WAC member San Jose State. The Spartans are ranked third in the WAC while Boise State is second. The meet gets underway at 6 p.m. in Taco Bell Arena.

The #19 Boise State gymnastics team hosts Western Athletic Conference opponent San Jose State this Sunday in Taco Bell Arena.  Boise State (4-1, 3-1 in the WAC) returns home for the second of six home meets this season.

The Broncos are coming off their second best performance of the season, a 194.425-point effort in the Southern Utah Quad Meet last weekend.  Boise State student-athletes captured all four events for the second straight week, but the team will be looking to show depth this week.

Boise State is averaging 194.250 this year while the Lady Spartans average 192.181.  Freshman Hannah Redmon was the WAC Gymnast of the Week by virtue of winning the all-around title last week for the Broncos.  Redmon also won the vault and floor exercises, while sophomore Taylor Jacob captured first on uneven bars and senior Lindsay Ward tied for first on the beam.

Boise State continues to pace the WAC in both vault and floor and is a solid number two on bars and beam.  Shaniece Craft leads the league on vault with a 9.80 average, with Ward #1 on bars (9.842) and Redmon tops in floor exercises (9.842).  Jacob is third in the WAC on beam with a 9.775 average.

Craft will be joined on vault by freshman Amy Glass, Redmon, junior Amber Neroes and sophomores Ruthie Pennington and Yvette Leizorek.  Jacob and Ward will head the bars along with Glass, Leizorek, Redmon and freshman Mallory Dziawura.  The Broncos' lineup on beam will be Ward, Jacob, Neroes, Redmon and freshmen Cassie Tycast and Kelsey Lang.  Boise State features a strong floor lineup in Redmon, Glass, Jacob, Leizorek, Lang and Sarah Smith.

Come out Sunday and cheer the Broncos on as they try to elevate their performance against the Spartans.  Action gets underway at 6 p.m.
