Idaho colleges roundup: Bridges becomes Boise State softball’s hits leader

Devon Bridges went 3-for-5 with four RBIs in Wednesday’s 12-11, eight-inning loss at UNLV. But the first of those hits, a two-run single up the middle, was the 217th of her career, putting her past Tara Glover (2012-14) as Boise State’s all-time leader. Bridges, a redshirt senior, hit a two-run homer, her fifth of the season, in the sixth to go with a double and led BSU with three hits in the contest. Fellow senior Jordan Kreiger also set a Boise State record of her own Wednesday, going 2-for-4 and hitting her 31st career double to move past Holly Bourke (2010-13) as the school’s all-time leader.

BSU WRESTLING: Assistant coach Kirk White has left the program to pursue other opportunities, the school announced Wednesday. White captured the national championship at 165 pounds in 1999, the first Bronco wrestler to accomplish the feat. He followed with All-American seasons in 2000 and 2001, still the only Bronco wrestler to garner three All-America accolades. White was inducted into the Boise State Athletic Hall of Fame in 2007. He joined the Bronco coaching staff in the 2005-06 season.
