OLDS — The Olds College women’s basketball team has added two more recruits for the 2021-22 season.
They are Tray-Lyn Fox from Foam Lake, Sask. and Nicole Farkas of Whitehorse, Yukon.
Fox, a 5'7" guard has a family connection to the Broncos.
She's the younger sister of former Broncos women's basketball student-athlete Colby Fox, who competed for Olds College from 2018-20.
While at Foam Lake High School, Fox was named team captain in 2020 and was awarded the Senior Girls Basketball Award as well as the Senior Athletic Award.
That same year she was named to the Saskatchewan Senior Classic All-Star team.
"Tray is a great ball handler and leader that gives us depth in the back court. Competition in practice will be fierce for minutes in a game so bringing a player like Tray in will be a huge addition for us," Broncos head women's basketball coach Craig Anderson said in a news release.
"I am really excited to join the Broncos family and can't wait to see what we can accomplish in the upcoming season," Fox said.
Fox plans to study business management.
Farkas, a 5'10" guard/forward, played her high school basketball at Vanier Catholic Secondary School in Whitehorse where she was named an all-star during the Yukon Schools Athletic Association Basketball Championships.
In addition to playing on numerous Yukon rep teams, Farkas also competed during the 2020 Arctic Winter Games in Whitehorse as well as the 2019 Western Canada Summer Games in Swift Current.
"I am extremely thrilled to have Nicole join the Broncos team. She again will add depth to our talented roster and is transitioning from playing in the post to becoming a wing player," Anderson said.
"Living in the Yukon, where there is a low number of females playing basketball is a challenge. Finding competition to help fuel your drive to succeed can be difficult, which is why I take full advantage of every opportunity I get,” Farkas said.
“That same self-motivation and determination is what fuels my game and pushes me to get better."
Farkas plans to study sports management.
