Momentum helps jr. girls topple Lacombe

Stettler’s junior girls’ volleyball team held their own against Lacombe last week, defeating their visitors in three of five sets

Stettler’s junior girls’ volleyball team held their own against Lacombe last week, defeating their visitors in three of five sets at William E. Hay Composite High School.

Sydney Poapst was the local player of the game for the Tuesday, Oct. 14 match. Results were 12-25, 25-20, 14-25, 25-16 and 15-12.

While the junior girls have met Lacombe before with varied results, assistant coach Jess Marshall said they were pleased to pull off a win.

“We had the momentum from the fourth set going in and that helped,” she said, while coach Alicia Kneeland added, “We pulled it out when it counted.”

The junior girls were scheduled to host Wetaskiwin on Tuesday, Oct. 21, followed by Innisfail a week later. Marshall said the team is in second place in the league but will need to win those two matches to maintain that position.

Senior boys

Stettler’s senior boys visited Lacombe on Wednesday, Oct. 15, winning one of four sets.

Setter Zack Werbowesky was William E. Hay’s player of the game. Results were 23-25, 16-25, 25-18 and 17-25.

“We could have beat them if we’d played to our capability,” said coach Derrick Hatch. “If things don’t go their way, it’s hard to recover.”

The seniors will host Wetaskiwin on Oct. 29 and will visit Sylvan Lake on Nov. 3.
