Gold medal from Grade 9 girls

As this year’s volleyball season begins to wind down, Grade 9 girls’ volleyball team of the Wm. E. Hay High School brought a gold medal from a local tournament.

The girls overpowered Donalda in the final game at the Bashaw tournament on Saturday, Oct. 30. They also won the Spirit Award for the best costume of the day.

“After a rough start to the day, the girls came back and played their hearts out,” said coach Audra Lotoski.

The girls will be playing again at this Saturday’s C.A.R.A tournament in the Stettler.

As for the senior boy Wildcats, they took part in a weekend tournament in Leduc hosted by the Christ the King School.

“After strong pool play they found themselves in a three way tie which ultimately put them in third place and a place in the consolation round of the tournament,” said coach Todd Dubber.

Winning the first game of the consolation round against Calgary Academy in two straight sets (25-20; 25-15), the Wildcat boys then went on to play in the consolation final against the host school, and lost in two sets (10-25 and 20-25).

This weekend the senior boys Wildcats will be playing in the final tournament of their season in Ponoka.
