    Why didn’t you note the female athlete’s name in the photo caption? Please note this comes across as sex-biased reporting.

      I couldn’t see the full number of the Ball State player and so focused on just naming the two USU players, which I felt was more important to my readers. I am reasonably confident who the BSU player is, but not certain I didn’t want to risk being wrong there and decided to play it safe.
