JV boys show stuff against city volleyball schools

The host Stettler Wildcats won all four sets against the Sylvan Lake representatives from HJ Cody High School.

The JV boys’ volleyball team from William E. Hay Composite High School warmed up for city exhibition competition with league action last week against Sylvan Lake.

The host Stettler Wildcats won all four sets against the Sylvan Lake representatives from HJ Cody High School.

“The guys picked it up in the final game and showed some great improvement and finished strong, keeping us undefeated in league play,” said Wildcats coach Brady Armstrong.

At home last Tuesday, Stettler’s JV boys lost an exhibition match against a 4A school, the Lindsay Thurber Raiders of Red Deer.

“We pushed them to five sets, but they took the series 3-2,” Armstrong said.

“We played hard and the boys all had great games. The game play was at a much higher level than what we have seen in recent history.

“This was a great test for our team. The boys really had to dig in and play hard.”

The Wildcats faced more high-level competition on the weekend as they competed in the Lindsay Thurber junior varsity tournament Friday and Saturday.

Stettler finished fifth in its five-team pool, losing four matches overall, but managing respectable results and winning one game against the host Raiders.

The Wildcats’ tourney results were: 21-25, 25-13 and 14-16 versus Lindsay Thurber, 22-25 and 20-25 against Hunting Hills, 20-25 and 22-25 versus W.P. Wagner, and 4-25 and 16-25 against Salisbury.

Spruce Grove defeated E.P. Scarlett of Calgary in the 10-team boys’ tournament final (25-20, 20-25 and 15-9).
