The Stettler Wildcats

Senior girls take home consolation title

The Stettler Wildcats senior girls’ basketball team won two of its three games last weekend to earn consolation championship honours

The Stettler Wildcats senior girls’ basketball team won two of its three games last weekend to earn consolation championship honours at the West Central high school tournament in Rocky Mountain House.

Stettler trounced Sundre 72-30 in the consolation final Saturday, after topping Rimbey 52-29.

The Wildcats’ lone loss was in their tournament-opener Friday as they fell 48-44 to David Thompson.

“We had a tough game on Friday night against David Thompson — a game we should have won,” said Stettler coach Charisse McDonald.

“Jamie Ternes broke out of an early-season slump, scoring 15 points, followed by Claire Aspenes with 11.

“We struggled with conditioning, having only eight players and Claire in foul trouble most of the game. Claire was named the game all-star by the other team.”

In their two Saturday games, the Wildcats “really weren’t challenged the rest of the way,” McDonald said. “It helped to have a team of 10 (as reinforcements arrived).

“Against Rimbey, we had a tough first quarter scoring and rebounding, but found our way with our press and patience.”

Game all-star Dacia Gramlick led Stettler with 18 points, while Aspenes added 10.

“In the (consolation) final, we met a very tired Sundre team,” McDonald said. “This was our highest-scoring game in two years.

“Everyone had at least four points. It was great to have everyone on the scoresheet.”

For the second time in three games, Aspenes was chosen player of the game.

The Wildcats were scheduled to host Wetaskiwin last night.

Stettler’s senior high teams are off for the rest of this week. The Wildcats’ JV teams host their boys’ and girls’ tournaments this weekend.

The Wildcats’ senior girls’ and boys’ teams return to the court next week for a Tuesday home date with Notre Dame of Red Deer and Thursday road action against Innisfail to wrap up the pre-Christmas schedule.
