Delaney Watson is in her junior soccer season at Boise State.

Burlington-Edison graduate Delaney Watson’s soccer season at Boise State is well underway, with the junior having appeared in 10 matches.

Watson has played 395 minutes through the 10 matches, a group of appearances that includes two starts.

The defender’s highlights include an 85-minute appearance during a 3-0 win over Weber State, 77 minutes in a 2-0 shutout of Portland State and 45 minutes in a 3-0 loss to North Dakota.

Watson appeared in 19 matches last season, starting 10. The Broncos allowed only 17 goals that season, one in which Watson was an academic all-Mountain West Conference honoree.

Watson was a four-time team MVP at Burlington-Edison, where she also played basketball and competed in track and field.

She was a four-time all-conference soccer selection and was the Skagit Valley Herald Girls’ Soccer Player of the Year in her senior season.
