Senior Wildcats struggle in front of home crowds

The Stettler Wildcats senior girls’ volleyball team had a tough week in league and tournament action.

The Stettler Wildcats senior girls’ volleyball team had a tough week in league and tournament action.

The Wildcats hosted their annual high school tournament Friday and Saturday, but they didn’t fare well in pool play or in the playoffs.

In round-robin action, Stettler lost to Camrose (25-20, 25-16) and Paradise Valley (25-12, 25-20), but managed a win against Wainwright (26-24, 26-24).

That left the Wildcats in third place in their pool, with 11 point.

In the consolation semifinals, the Wildcats came up flat and lost two games to Provost Catholic, which had placed fourth in the other pool.

This week, the Wildcats have a bye in their league schedule. They’re back on the court next Tuesday in Lacombe, where they will play Central Alberta Christian High School.

In league action last Tuesday, the Wildcats lost in three straight games to the visiting Lacombe Rams.

“The Rams are a very talented team with several club players that don’t make many mistakes,” said Stettler coach Warren Aspenes. “The ’Cats continued to improve in developing their attack, but just came away with too many unforced errors to compete with the Rams.”

The Wildcats’ player of the game in last week’s match against Lacombe was Claire Aspenes.
