  • The meet will be held at the West Family YMCA and Boise City Aquatic Center off of Chinden Boulevard at 5959 N Discovery Way, Boise.
  • This meet will include both the swim and dive teams from both schools.
  • Boise State is 12-8 all-time versus Nevada going 4-4 in duals and 8-4 at invitationals, which includes a 7-4 mark in conference championship meets.

LAST TIME OUT

  • Nov. 14-17: Boise State swim and dive split up the last time out with the swimmers traveling to College Station, Texas, for the Art Adamson Invitational, while the divers went to Columbia, Mo., to participate in the Mizzou Invite. 
  • At the Art Adamson Invitational, the swimmers recorded 14 individual top-8 finishes, led by Abbey Sorensen (4th in 50 free, 3rd in 100 back, 6th in 200 back) and Lucia Davis (5th in 500 free, 5th in 200 free, 8th in 1,650 free) with three each.

Senior Cassidy Bose took seventh on the 3-meter springboard and 10th on the platform.  

THE MABILE ERA BEGINS

  • Mabile returned to Boise State after two years as an assistant at Missouri, preceded by five years as head coach at the College of Idaho.
  • Joining Mabile on her first coaching staff are Jordan Lieberman who was an assistant at Cornell, as well as Brandon Blaisdell who returns for his fourth season as the Bronco diving coach. 

CHAMPIONSHIP TRADITION

  • Boise State's swimming and diving program has built a championship tradition in its 12-year existence.
