This past weekend the senior girls Wildcats volleyball team experienced great success against other rural teams as they attended a tournament in Eckville.
Friday night the girls got off to a bit of a slow start against Rimbey, dropping the first set 18-25. They then tightened up their play to win the second set 25-20.
The second match on Friday saw the team handle Bentley easily winning in two straight sets 25-18 and 25-6.
The team played their last round robin game on Saturday morning against Buck Mountain again having a great outcome, winning with scores of 25- 10 and 25-8.
Finishing first in their pool sent them straight to the semi-finals where they faced Koinonia.
The level of volleyball increased significantly with great offense from both teams. Koinonia came out strongly beating the local squad 25-18. The Stettler girls then went into attack mode and won the following two sets 25-20 and 15-11. This sent them to the A final against the home Eckville team. The gym was packed as the final got underway. The volleyball was intense but the girls stayed very focused and won the first set 25-23.
They were playing strongly in the second set up until 24-21 when Eckville found a second wind and came back to beat them 26-24. The final set saw Eckville on an upswing beating Stettler 15-11. The girls played their best volleyball of the season with very strong offense and defensive play and great team work.
