The College of Idaho football team saw its season come to an end Sunday when the Yotes were not selected to participate in the 16-team NAIA Tournament.

Despite earning at least a share of the Frontier Conference title for the third year in a row, the Yotes (7-3, 7-3 Frontier Conference) did not earn an automatic bid, as Montana Western finished No. 19 in the final poll to grab the spot. The Bulldogs will be the No. 16 seed and will face top-seeded Lindsey Wilson (Ky.) on Saturday.

The College of Idaho was No. 25 in the final NAIA poll, while Rocky Mountain, which also finished tied with the Yotes and the Bulldogs was No. 21.

BRONCO WOMEN EARN FIRST WIN OF SEASON: The shooters for the Boise State women’s basketball team found their rhythm Monday, leading the Broncos to an 83-48 win against Oregon Tech, their first win of the season.

Five other Broncos scored in double figures as Dominique Leonidas had 13 points, Abby Muse and Kaitlin Burgess both scored 11 and Elodie Lalotte and Anna Ostlie both scored 10. Lalotte also had ten rebounds to earn her first career double-double.

Five players have tallied five or more goals for Keiser, led by Kyoka Koshijima (8 goals, 9 assists). Goalkeeper Grace McClellan has 13 career shutouts. The Seahawks and Yotes have never played each other.
