Sydney Poapst (5) of the William E. Hay Composite High School junior varsity girls basketball team shoots during a Dec. 10 home game against the Sylvan Lake Lakers.

The junior varsity girls from William E. Hay Composite High School hosted the Sylvan Lake Lakers on Dec. 10, leading throughout in a close match that ended with a 35-30 win for the home team.

“We still need lots of work on zoning, but that’s OK,” said coach Kim Poapst. “The mental part of the game is coming.”

She also complimented the girls on their offensive rebounds, noted that their communication was improving and observed that eight of 11 players scored during Wednesday’s game.

“None of the kids are scared to shoot,” said Poapst. “They’re analyzing  themselves better.”

Top scorer for Stettler was Shayna Brower with five points.
