High school volleyball action continues in full swing at both the Wm. E Hay high school and in other area schools with local teams getting mixed results in regular season games.

Senior Wildcat girls hosted the Ponoka high school at the Wm. E Hay gym last Thursday, Sept. 30, in what turned out to be hard fought battle.

The Wildcats quickly recovered after losing the first one 25-15 to the visitors and won the second set 25-23.

Ponoka girls however proved to be tough nut to crack and they won the third and fourth sets

25-22 and 25-16, respectively.

“Even with some unrelenting ups and beautiful back row attacks from Satomi Kondo, the girls couldn’t pull it all together,” said Sarah Steinbach, the Wildcats coach.

Senior Wildcat boys also played last week in Wetaskiwin but no game information on the game scores was made available.

As for Grade 9 boys, they played against Donalda last week, winning the game two sets to one, 28-26, 16-25 and 25-23.

“Cole Bailey had an awesome night for serving and Jordan Smyth and JustinDadensky had strong, powerful hits all night,” said coach Kayla Fedor.

In further volleyball action, the Wm. E Hay gym hosted an eight-team tournament of juniors over the weekend with schools from Castor, Coronation, Donalda, Halkirk and Crestomere taking part,

“It was a well-attended tournament of Grade 8 and Grade 9 teams mostly,” said Don Seale of the Donalda School.

“Coronation beat Donalda in the final” said Seale.

“Donalda played and eliminated Crestomere in the semi finals and Coronation beat Gus Wetter to reach the finals, both in two straight sets,” he said.
