Broncs boys look for strong return in 2013

A perfect season wasn’t enough to get the Ponoka Composite High School Broncs senior boys’ volleyball team to provincials

Kenton Rodney helps the Broncs senior boys’ volleyball team defeat Camrose during zones Nov. 17. The Broncs made it to the finals but lost to Wetaskiwin.

A perfect season wasn’t enough to get the Ponoka Composite High School Broncs senior boys’ volleyball team to provincials but it did give them an appreciation of the season.

Co-captains Ethan Cire and Kenton Rodney took some time to discuss zone championships Nov. 17 and their loss to Wetaskiwin Sabres in the finals.

For Cire the challenge was staying focused after several hours down time before the game. “What gave Wetaskiwin the success option is they were playing all afternoon.”

They played Wetaskiwin earlier in the day and won with close points at 25-23 for both and Rodney feels it was an experience to learn from. “I wish we would have done better,” he said, but, “they were playing amazing defence.”

Plus the Sabres had some strong players who had just come off of injuries, explained Rodney.

“We were playing pretty good but they were playing better,” said Cire.

The Sabres have always been a tough team to beat, explained Rodney, although the Broncs beat them in league play.

With four players graduating next year, including Rodney, Cire feels the team will perform well next year but “we’re all definitely going to lose some great players.”

He would like to see the team perform well enough to make it to provincials, a goal of the team’s coach, Ron Labrie.
