JV Wildcat boys hosted an eight-team tournament on Friday and Saturday last week, advancing to the bronze medal game but failing to capture the medal.

The tournament opened with the JV Wildcats taking on Olds Spartans on Friday afternoon, Feb. 18.

“We probably played our best game of the season against Old,” said JV Wildcats coach Warren Aspenes.

“Because we shot quite well in that game,” he added.

Wildcats took on Springbank in their final game to capture the bronze medal.

“It was a thrilling game and we lost it 56-54,,” said Aspenes, adding that he was pleased with the way his team conducted at the tournament.

As for senior boy Wildcats, they lost their latest game to Rocky by a score of 81 to 29 on Feb. 15.

This weekend, senior boys host another tournament in Stettler while Grade 9 boys travel to Lacombe on Saturday for a tournament.

As for Grade 9 girls, they won their last game against Byemoor 30-26 at the end of what their coach described as a “very physical game.”
