Broncos take ACAC showcase

THS Bronco Showcase

The ACAC Olds Broncos and St. Mary’s Lightning were at Three Hills School on Monday evening playing some pre-season basketball. The stands were full for this exciting game, with a concession stand set up fundraising for the THS girls volleyball team’s Florida tournament.

The score was all tied up at 15 after the first quarter, and within three at the half, but early season mistakes turned opportunities for the Lightning into points for the Broncos. Olds pulled away and held their lead, winning the game with a score of 74-69.

Other sporting events upcoming include an ACAC Women’s volleyball showcase featuring the RDC Queens and Olds College Broncos on Wednesday October 3rd at 7:00 pm at the Three Hills School gym. As well, the University of Alberta Pandas will play the Mount Royal University Cougars in a CIS Basketball showcase at the Rick Down Athletic Centre on Prairie College campus at 6:00 pm on Thursday, October 4th.
