With the school year fast approaching the Broncos Basketball team has signed two more athletes to the 2017-18 roster. Madison Simmonds and Cassidy Simmonds have both been accepted into the Land and Water Resources program at Olds College, and will be majoring in Land Reclamation.
They both played at Edmonton Christian High School before joining the NAIT Ooks last season under Head Coach Todd Warnick. Both Simmonds run the floor well, and are good shooters which has the Broncos coaching staff looking forward to seeing them on the court this coming season. ‟They both kind of fell into our laps,ˮ admitted Head Coach Avery Harrison. We just happened to have the right program and Madison contacted our office and told them she was registered already and wanted to play basketball. So we contacted NAIT, and moved forward from there.ˮ A week later they received another call, this time from Cassidy who was registered in the same program. So now both twins are suiting up for the Broncos this Fall. ‟We know they have had some great coaching at NAIT so we are all happy they decided to join us down the road in Olds,ˮ said Harrison.
