By Dale Cory

Ponoka failed to advance to the playoff round at the Albert high school girls’ 3A volleyball championships, held Nov. 25 to 27 in Lloydminster.

The Broncs were 1-4 in the round robin.

Ponoka’s lone victory came over the Holy Trinity Trojans of Edmonton by scores of 19-25, 25-21, and 25-9.

The Broncs lost in three sets to Brooks, dropping the deciding set 15-13, and also went down to Monsignor McCoy of Medicine Hat in three sets, losing the tiebreaker 15-9. Ponoka dropped straight-set matches to St. Joseph’s of Grande Prairie and Cold Lake High School of Edmonton, the eventual provincial champions.

The Broncs boys took part in the 3A high school championships in Westlock Nov. 25 to 27.

Ponoka went 3-2 in the round robin. The Broncs beat host Westlock in three sets, including a 17-15 result in the tiebreaker and swept Queen Elizabeth Knights of Calgary and Bonnyville in straight sets. Ponoka fell in three sets to Grande Prairie and in straight sets to Louis St. Laurent of Edmonton.

The result was good enough for Ponoka to advance to the playoff round, but the Broncs fell to Camrose 25-17 and 25-18, and were eliminated from the championships.
