Boise, Idaho – The 2019 Boise State Gymnastics schedule will feature 10 regular-season meets, including four home meets at Taco Bell Arena. The Mountain Rim Gymnastics Conference championships will be held on March 22nd in Provo, Utah, at BYU. The Broncos will face two teams that advanced to NCAA championships in 2018, Nebraska and Washington.
Co-head coaches Neil Resnick
and Tina Bird
were once again named co-head coaches of the year by the National Association of Collegiate Gymnastics Coaches in 2018. They are entering their 12th season with the Broncos.
The Broncos achieved an unprecedented fourth-straight MRGC championship last year while also earning the No. 1 team GPA in the NCAA. Overall, they finished with a 17-5 record.
Boise State returns 11 gymnasts, including 2018 MRGC Gymnast of the Year Shani Remme
and 2016 Olympians Isabella Amado
and Courtney McGregor
In 2018, the gymnastics team swept MRGC Gymnast of the Week honors with a Bronco earning the spot all 10 weeks.
The four-time defending MRGC champions will start the year at home with a tri-meet against San Jose State and Air Force. San Jose State is coming off a Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF) conference championship where they broke the school record for total score.
The Broncos will have their first conference matchup against Southern Utah. They will face the Thunderbirds back-to-back on Jan. 18 and 25, at Cedar City, Utah, and at home, respectively.
