PCHS volleyball teams capture gold

By Dale Cory

Ponoka Composite High School senior boy’s and girls’ teams’ brought home championship trophies from the M.E. LaZerte high school tournament in Edmonton Oct. 23. Considering the tournament drew some of the top 4A schools in the city, it was an impressive result for local volleyball squads.

Both teams went through the tournament undefeated.

The boys went three sets in the championship match against the host team — with the Broncs squeaking through with a 15-12 victory over M.E. LaZerte in the final set.

“I saw outstanding, exceptional play from everyone,” said PCHS head coach Chris Noble, whose team is 2-2 in league play. “The boys are putting together the things we’ve been teaching them and actually applying it in the games. They’re working toward peeking and are on schedule.”

The girls’ final also went three sets, with Ponoka defeating Vimy Ridge Academy, a team that boasted an undefeated record prior to matching up against the strong PCHS team.

The Broncs girls’ team, which has now won back-to-back city tournaments, is ranked No. 1 in its division in league play.
