The No. 11 Broncos will be competing at the Lincoln Regional as the No. 2 seed on the campus of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The regional will take place on Saturday, April 1 at 3 p.m. (MT) at the Bob Devaney Sports Center.

The seeding is the first time in school history that the team has earned a No. 2 seed at a NCAA Regional.

The other five teams at the Lincoln Regional will include No. 1 seed LSU, No. 3 seed and host Nebraska, No. 4 seed Arizona, No. 5 seed Iowa State and No. 6 seed Minnesota.

Boise State enters the regional with an RQS of 196.910. The regional selection is the 10th in a row for co-head coaches Tina Bird and Neil Resnick, having qualified in all 10 years while at the helm. The highest the Broncos have ever placed at a regional meet was third.

“It's a good location for us we actually built this competitive season on about getting out and seeing top 10 and top 12 teams and we have done that.  I think we are prepared for this meet,” said, Co-Head Coach Neil Resnick.

“Just knowing we are second seed helps us gain more confidence with our gymnastics,” said,  Sophomore Gymnast Shani Remme.

“We are just excited to see how we do compare to LSU and Nebraska.  I’m really excited about LSU they have great gymnastics and I just think it will be a great experience,” said, Senior Gymnast Diana Mejia.
