JV girls basketball squad continues unbeaten league streak

A 68-21 win over the visiting Rocky Mountain House continued the Stettler JV Girls' basketball squad's unbeaten streak.

A 68-21 win over the visiting Rocky Mountain House continued the Stettler JV Girls’ basketball squad’s unbeaten streak, and with only one more game left in the regular league season, the team is pumped up for this week’s game against Lindsay Thurber in Red Deer to finish the regular season undefeated.

The game saw every member of the Wildcat squad net points, though Emily Brown brought in the most with 16, followed closely by Reesa Garez with 10.

Despite being undefeated in league play, the girls didn’t fare so well at the weekend tournament in Wetaskiwin. Starting on Friday, Feb. 12, the girls lost a close game to Camrose 44-42.

“We did not execute our offence well and Camrose played strong defence,” coach Kim Poapst said.

With players out with injuries and some at the Alberta Winter Games, the team was short some of its key players and ended up winning the consolation finals.
