The Wild, Wild Mountain West Softball Outlook
We wrap up another week here on In The Circle by taking our talents to the Mountain West. Eric Lopez catches up with three of the league’s top coaches. First, San Diego State Head Coach Stacey Nuveman-Deniz talks to In The Circle as San Diego State prepares for the upcoming season. After winning the Mountain West one year ago and making the regional final in Tempe, Coach looks back at last year and talks about the Aztecs’ season outlook. Coach Nuveman breaks down her star-studded coaching staff as well as hosting the Mountain West Tournament.
Next, we head to Boise to talk with Boise State Head Coach Justin Shults. 2022 saw the Broncos win twelve straight to close the year and record a school-record 19 league wins. They are looking to add more, including a postseason berth. Coach Shultz talks to In The Circle about the Broncos 2022 season & the lessons he took from his first season as Coach. He also talks about the strength of the Mountain West.
Last, but not least, we head to Vegas to catch up with UNLV Head Coach Kristie Fox. The Rebels look to continue their momentum from a year ago after making the NISC Finals before falling to Baylor. Coach Fox talks to In The Circle about the Running Rebel’s outlook in 2023 and the Mountain West adding a conference tournament. She also reflects on the 15-year anniversary of Arizona’s 2007 National Championship.
