BOISE, Idaho-Boise State softball Head Coach Erin Thorpe announced Sunday, Makenna Weir of Woodinville, Wash., signed a National Letter of Intent to join the Broncos. Weir is currently a senior at Woodinville High School, where she plays shortstop.

"Makenna plays the game well beyond her years," Thorpe said. "Her on field maturity
will immediately help a team that is going to be missing some extremely experienced players."

Weir has lettered each of her first two seasons at Woodinville, a three-year high school, under head coach Mark Leander. She has led the Falcons to a 41-4 record and two 4A KingCo Conference titles. Weir teamed with current Bronco Katie Engelbrecht to help the Falcons to a district title and third-place finish at state in 2011.

Weir is a two-time first-team All-KingCo selection. She was the first-team shortstop as a sophomore and was honored as a utility player last season. Weir was awarded the Woodinville Golden Glove in her first season and was named most inspirational as a junior.

Weir plays for Absolute Blast and coach Eric Bolstad on the travel-ball circuit. She had two hits, scored twice and drove in a run at the Premier National Championship this summer. Weir's father, Jim, is an assistant coach with Absolute Blast. Jim Weir spent three seasons in the San Francisco Giants minor league system as a pitcher and first baseman.

Weir is active off the diamond, as well, lettering in twice in basketball. She has been named MVP and most inspirational for the Falcons on the hardwood. She is also the senior class secretary at Woodinville. Weir bats and throws right handed.

"Boise State was the perfect fit," Weir said. "I loved the campus, the city and everything about the softball program. It is also far enough away for me to be away at college, but not too far if I want to go home."
