Olds College Broncos land major talent

The Olds College Broncos are adding some big talent to their women’s basketball squad.

The college announced recently it has signed Lindsay Thurber standout Keitlyn Williams, who will join the Bronco’s for the 2011-2012 season.

“Keitlyn will make our program better,” said Greg Lendvay, co-coach of the women’s basketball team and Director of Health and Wellness for the college.

“She has the ability to break people down off of the dribble and score. She also has the desire to become a better player and will begin working with our high performance trainers and coaches to get ready for September. We are looking forward to her to be a key part of our movement forward to ACAC in 2012.”

The college currently competes in the Alberta College Athletic League, one step below the Alberta College Athletic Conference, home to teams like Red Deer College and Mount Royal University.

Williams, who helped the Lindsay Thurber Raiders get to the zone 4-A finals where they lost to Hunting Hills in a best of three, comes to Olds College with quite the resume.

It includes stints with the Basketball Alberta Regional Training Centre and the Canada Basketball Centre for Performance.

Williams also picked up all-star selections in numerous games throughout her high school career, and has experience playing with the Olds College Junior Broncos.

“I played club here and am familiar with the coaches and coaching staff,” said Williams.

“I like the direction that the program is going and the opportunity to play and practice in the four gymnasiums. As well, Olds College has the Land Agent Program that I want to take.”
