The Lady Broncos played well during the Pink Stampede volleyball tournament at Coast Union last weekend. In fact, the home team won three games in the opening round and finished with a 7-2 record, fourth overall among seven high school teams.
Leading the way for the Lady Broncos was all-tournament selection Sage Radecki, with 22 assists, 12 digs and 10 kills.
Coach Pam Kenyon praised Radecki’s effort, adding that Gigi Stoothoff “did a nice job. I tried a numberof strategies, and Gigi stood out to me.” All of her athletes played well, she said.
The team has two Coast Valley League games this week, Tuesday, Sept. 23, at Coastal Christian and Thursday, Sept. 25, against Shandon at home (a 5 p.m. start).
Meanwhile, Kenyon is being given radiation treatments “every day,” she explained in an interview Monday, Sept. 22. Kenyon, who was recently declared cancer-free after receiving treatment for colon cancer, gets treatments each morning to prevent cancer from returning, and the school brings in a substitute for the half-day Kenyon misses.
Providing extra coaching support for Kenyon are assistant coaches Dennis White and Katherine Heistand, a 1993 Coast Union graduate who was MVP on the volleyball team and class valedictorian. “She’s my game-saver right now,” Kenyon explained. “She walked into the program without skipping a beat. She’s an enormous help.”
