Olds College's Athletic Director Reflects On 2017

Growing the program and changing the team culture was part of 2017 for the Athletic Director of the Olds College Broncos. Linda Henderson began her job at OC in May of last year. She feels confident and proud of what they have been able to accomplish so far in such a short time.

Since starting at Olds College in May of 2017, the Athletic Director for the Broncos says it has been a successful year.
 
Linda Henderson calls it a great beginning. She is thankful for the opportunity to work with the great administration and executive staff at Olds College.
 
 
She says growing the program and changing the team culture was part of 2017 for the Broncos.
 
 
Broncos curling is also in full swing. She says they have some good curlers who could also be at the conference championships in Camrose this year. The national championships are in Leduc.
 
She says the Broncos men's basketball team is also in the middle of the pack and could medal this year at provincials.
 
Meanwhile, women's hockey is on track, she thinks they have an opportunity this season to make it to the ACAC playoffs for the first time in the history of their program.
 
Henderson notes there is stability in the Broncos men's and women's volleyball programs and expects they will improve tremendously as well.
 
 
Potentially in 2018, Henderson says they might put in a bid to host the women's basketball provincials because they are doing well. She expects a core group of the team back next year and OC has the type of gym facility necessary to host.
 
She is also working closely with the competitive rodeo club and adding that to the Broncos portfolio.
