Basketball Battle of Ponoka set for two high schools

Perhaps the first time ever in league, the Ponoka Broncs play against the St. Augustine Kings & Queens

The Battle of Ponoka is coming up.

For perhaps the first time ever in Ponoka’s senior high basketball history the Ponoka Secondary Campus Broncs and St. Augustine Kings and Queens senior basketball teams will play against each other.

With the Broncs stepping down into the 2A league due to school population size, they now play in the same league as the Kings and Queens.

Game night is set for Wednesday, Dec. 12 at the Ponoka Secondary Campus gym and it is expected that parents and fans of both teams will be out to support the teams.

Both sides — except the senior girls Broncs who had a bye on the first day — have had wins, so there is no knowing how they will do against each other. That being said, coaches look forward to the experience.
