On a chilly Monday in February, the Boise State Broncos were on the bus home from Denver after scoring their second consecutive 197+ score. Bus trips are some of their best bonding experiences, according to sophomore Shani Remme, which contributes to their closeness as a team.
“I don’t have a particular [favorite], because we just have a lot of fun,” she said.
But this trip would be especially memorable. Someone on the bus discovered the weekly rankings were in, and the Broncos now sat at No. 7—their highest ranking in program history.
“When we saw we were seventh… We all started cheering and jumping around,” freshman Courtney McGregor said. “We were super excited!”
But this would not be the pinnacle of the season for the Broncos.

We had a lot of good leos this week, including a debut from Ohio State! Check out our thoughts then vote for your favorite in the fan poll! Don’t see the one you loved from this weekend? Let us know in the comments or on social media.
The criteria is the same as last season. But to refresh your memories: up to three points for design; two points for fabric, sparkle, etc.; and two points for school spirit; three points for overall appearance. After assigning points to each category, we’ll tally up the scores and average them with the previous week’s. So by the end of the season, we’ll know for sure which team has the best leotards (according to us) and which teams not so much. We want to know what you thought too (or if we forgot one of your favorites from this weekend)! Let us know in the comments below or on Twitter. And make sure to vote in our poll at the bottom of the page to make your opinion heard in the fan vote, new this season.
