Bronco gymnastics starts 2013 with focus on Nationals
BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) - Doesn't it seem like every year the Boise State gymnastics team winds up just short of making a trip to nationals ... like fractions of a point? That might be because it's true.

So, you'll have to forgive the Broncos if they're paying less attention about being picked to win the Western Athletic Conference, and a bit more to that number 15 national ranking to start the 2013 season.

"Of course, the WAC Championship is a pretty big deal. In the long term, we're trying to get to the National Championships, which is our BCS," said co-head coach Neil Resnick.

"Our biggest goal as a team is obviously is to make it to Nationals which we have fell very short of in the past three years in a row, so when we're on the equipment it's not just doing your skills, it's the little details involved just to get at least .025 higher to get us that much closer," added senior captain Brittany Potvin-Green.

Boise State opens up their 2013 season Friday night against Utah State at Taco Bell Arena. All the fun gets going at 7 pm (MTN).
