The red-hot Broncos celebrated another accomplishment Wednesday, as the Mountain West announced its all-conference softball teams. 

Boise State (37-10, 16-5 MW) had a school-record seven players named to the All-Mountain West Conference teams, including three Broncos receiving first-team honors.

Lalor ranks in the conference's top-five statistically in doubles (13), slugging percentage (.718) and home runs (12). Prior to playing outfield in Boise, Lalor was a point guard for the University of Saskatchewan women's basketball team from 2017 to 2019.

Flores is on pace to break Boise State's single-season record for shortstops with in fielding at .958. The star infielder is in her first season as a Bronco after playing in 115 games at Oklahoma. 

Senior Sara Johnson, junior Kelsey Hall, redshirt-sophomore Alycia Flores and sophomore Abby Bumcrot were named to the All-Mountain West second team on Wednesday. 

Johnson also landed on the conference's second-team last season and ranks fourth in the Mountain West with a 2.30 ERA, one spot ahead of Bailey. 

Hall picked up two Mountain West Player of the Week honors this season and is currently tied with Lalor for the fifth-most home runs in the conference (12).

Alycia Flores sits in sixth place in the conference with a .382 batting average. The California native made 22 appearances as a freshman in 2020 before redshirting in 2021. 

In 71 at bats in 2022, Bumcrot holds a .500 on-base percentage and is hitting .394. 

The Broncos' final regular season series at Colorado State is set for May 12 - May 14.
