OLDS - Braden Bates and Francesca Sandini are the Olds College A&W men's and women's athletes of the week for Oct. 21-27.

Male Athlete of the Week

Bates, a middle attacker on the men’s volleyball team helped the Broncos open their season vs. SAIT.

The team lost both nights, but the third-year business student led the middles on both nights with a solid performance. The Calgary product accumulated five digs, eight kills and three stuff blocks over the weekend.

Bates stepped up as a leader of the team and motivated his teammates to keep fighting against a very good SAIT team.

Female Athlete of the Week

Sandini, a rookie libero on the women’s volleyball team, started off the season strong, showing great composure and leadership on the Broncos' defence.

The sports management student-athlete from Burnaby, B.C. played steadily on Friday, passing a 2.1 average and contributing 13 digs to a five-set victory at SAIT. She followed that up Saturday during the Broncos' home opener, passing a 2.25 and adding 20 digs.

Sandini’s positive attitude and hard work will be key contributors to the continuing development of the volleyball program.
