The Stettler Wildcats senior girls’ volleyball team had a busy week of league play, with the regular season quickly winding down.

The Stettler Wildcats senior girls’ volleyball team had a busy week of league play, with the regular season quickly winding down.

A week ago Tuesday, the Wildcats travelled to Lacombe to play Central Alberta Christian High School (CACHS) and ran into a very talented team that defeated Stettler 3-0.

Allison Cassidy was the Wildcats player of the game, with solid hitting on the night.

Last Thursday, the Wildcats were back on the road as they headed to Hunting Hills in Red Deer to participate in an interlock with Sylvan Lake (H.J. Cody High School) and the host Lightning squad.

The Wildcats lost 2-0 in both matches against “some very talented teams,” said Stettler coach Warren Aspenes.

“Despite the loss, the girls are continuing to improve their play, which was very evident in the Hunting Hills match. The Lightning are one of the top three teams in the 12-team league and we gave them a very competitive match by forcing them to make most of their points on very good attacking plays, as opposed to making several unforced errors that provide easy points for the opposition.”

Michaela Ennis and Carly Armstrong were the Wildcats’ players of the matches in Thursday night’s action.
