The Stettler Wildcats placed fourth in the Wetaskiwin junior varsity girls’ high school basketball tournament last week.

The Stettler Wildcats placed fourth in the Wetaskiwin junior varsity girls’ high school basketball tournament last week. Although missing players, the Wildcats “played hard,” said coach Santana Scarff.

She tipped her hat to Stettler’s top scorers in the tournament games — Grace Chapman, Amy Sones and Emily Wright.

The Wildcat JV teams are at home tonight to the Lindsay Thurber Raiders of Red Deer, beginning with the girls’ game at 6 p.m.

Last week, the Wildcat girls lost to another Red Deer school, Hunting Hills, 49-31. “Due to some fouling issues, the girls lost steam in the last quarter,” Scarff said.

The Wildcats’ top scorers were Morgan Van Dusen, with 13 points, and Chapman, with 10 points.
