CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The Lady Broncs have a change of scenery this year as they moved from 3A to 2A competition. They will return several experienced players, and one of the biggest keys for them is that several of these girls have played together since even before high school.

Their coach said that chemistry has been evident leading up to the season.

“The first couple weeks of practice have been awesome. They’ve obviously played together quite a bit. These kids really care about each other, and that shows in the way that they play,” head coach Barry Ward said.

The Lady Broncs were up against some tough competition last season; they went 8-17 in 3A play and 3-3 in conference games. The team will also have to replace the production of guard Rylee Jo Ward, who was All-State in each of the last two seasons.

However, one of their senior leaders believes that all the time this year’s squad has spent together will produce results on the court.

“It’s kind of awesome to see how much we’ve grown and slowly come together. The chemistry has made it more fun to play, it’s just made it an amazing experience to continue playing. And this year I think it’s the [most] perfect situation I could ask for to finish it off with the girls I am. People that I’m familiar with, and it’s just perfect I think. It’s going to be a good season,” Daljit Kaur said.

The Lady Broncs began their season on Thursday hosting the Burns Winter Classic.
