Five Boise State Teams In Postseason Play

The week will be extremely busy for Boise State fans this week. No less than five teams are still alive in postseason play and all are in action at various sites around the country.

You might forgive the thousands of Boise State fans that travel across the country to watch their favorite team play if they can't be everywhere they want to be.  

With spring sports winding down, no less than five Bronco teams will be in action this week in the postseason.  Both tennis teams are headed to the Big Dance, the NCAA Tournaments in South Bend, Indiana and Athens, Georgia, the men's and women's track teams will compete in the Western Athletic Conference Championships in Ruston, Louisiana and the women's softball team earned the #3 seed in the upcoming WAC Tournament in Las Cruces, New Mexico.  

Thus, Bronco fans will be spread out all over the country this week, and for those not able to go, BroncoCountry is the site to keep tabs on how all the Bronco teams are doing.  We will have complete updates throughout the week on the Olympic Sports board as well as articles on the front page.  

The Boise State softball team drew the home team (New Mexico State) in the opening round and will play their first game tomorrow night (Wednesday) at 7 p.m. Mountain time.  You can listen live to follow this exciting team—just go to www.BroncoSports.com and click on the free audio link.  Steven Olveda will do the play-by-play from Las Cruces .  There is also a video feed of all tournament games available at www.WAC.tv.  A subscription of $14.95 will get you access to all the games.  More details are available on the web site.  

The track teams begin Wednesday in Ruston .  Kurt Felix will be one of the favorites in the decathlon Wednesday and Thursday.  The bulk of the events are scheduled for Friday and Saturday.  The Boise State men are projected to finish second while the women should be in the middle of the pack this week.  As always, we will keep you updated on the Olympic Sports board.  

Last year, the women's tennis team was selected to their first-ever NCAA Tournament and all they did was beat favored Alabama in their first match.  The Bronco men reached the Sweet Sixteen before losing to #3 Ohio State .  This year, the Lady Broncos won the WAC for the first time and earned the automatic berth that goes with it.  The Boise State men struggled a bit this season but given last year's experience and their great coach Greg Patton, they're hoping to at least duplicate last year's success.  

Saturday, the Bronco women take on #21 Iowa in South Bend at 8 a.m. Mountain time while the men challenge #29 Florida State at 11 a.m. Mountain time on the University of Georgia campus.  

Good luck to all five Bronco teams still alive in the postseason!
