Over on the diamond, the Boise State softball team is back home this weekend after sweeping the Nevada Wolfpack in Reno, Nevada.  The Broncos are winners of four straight a big part of that success has been a freshman who carries a big stick at the plate.

Alison Seng is helping the blue and orange in the offensive department leading the team in batting clubbing a whopping 457 at the plate.  She is a finalist for the national freshman of the year award.

"I think it's taking every pitch one at a time and making sure if I have the chance to win that pitch and move onto the next one," said, Freshman Alison Seng.

A first baseman and designated player for the Broncos, Seng has put together a phenomenal freshman season for the blue and orange playing in 44 games and having 58 hits.

"There are some days that I see the ball better than the other but lately I just focus on getting my pitch and putting my best swing on a good pitch," said, Seng.

The Broncos are leading all of the NCAA in batting.  As a team, Boise State is hitting .357. Head Coach Cindy Ball says it's been a team favorite to get where they are at.

"Most of it is going towards our pitching staff we have a lot of pitchers that throw live.  Having such a strong pitching staff throwing to them almost every single day has helped our offense tremendously,” said Ball.
