A 3-1 loss in sets for the JV Broncs girls volleyball team was enough to remind them of the importance of communication.

The JV team played the Wetaskiwin Sabres Nov. 14 in their last regular season match and had to contend with their opponents being unwilling to give up many points. Their biggest challenge appeared to be overcoming unforced errors on the serve and communicating while the ball was in play. While this was a challenge during the match, it was also a learning experience said captain Hailer Boser.

She feels the loss against a strong team gave them something to work for in zones, which were to be played Nov. 16. A positive attitude is one of her main areas to focus on. Being the setter, she is quite aware of her other players’ stresses during a game.

“I try to make sure it’s always positive on the court,” said Boser.

Coach Danielle Yaremchuck worked closely with her players during time-outs at the Sabres’ match.

“Talking (and) communication. They need to be more positive on and off the court.”

While this match may not have been their best, the Broncs JV team have performed well in tournaments and she wanted to take that strength with her to the zones challenge. “Honestly we should be able to win,” said the coach.

Placing during the regular season was close for the Broncs; at the time of the Sabres’ match, they were sitting close to the third or fourth place. They were to compete against five other teams in zones.

The match brought other challenges for the team as well as they faced a strong offense from the Sabres.

‘They have good hitters as well,” said captain Boser.
