Second year men’s volleyball player Thundersky Walkingbear led the way in both Friday and Saturday matches for the Broncos. Although the Broncos fell short on Friday night, they were close sets, which gave Thundersky and the rest of the team some confidence for the next day. The Sports Management student-athlete hailing from Thunderchild, SK received Player of the Game honours on Saturday and was the go-to for the Broncos down the stretch. He led the way in virtually every stat and was instrumental in the split weekend which gave the Broncos their third win of the season - a first time ever in program history since rejoining the ACAC in 2012. His combined 24 kills, 23 digs and three stuff blocks makes him our nominee for Athlete of the Week.
