Unbeaten JV boys earn right to host league tournament

After an undefeated regular season, the pennant-winning Stettler Wildcats host the Central Alberta High School Volleyball League’s

After an undefeated regular season, the pennant-winning Stettler Wildcats host the Central Alberta High School Volleyball League’s junior varsity boys’ championship this Saturday.

“Given our record, we’re fairly confident going into the championship,” said teacher supervisor Derrick Hatch, who coaches the Wildcats along with Brady Armstrong.

“However, anything can happen, especially given that it’s a one-day tourney, with our team having to play a minimum of four to six matches all in one day.

“Win or lose, we’re going to have eight exhausted players by the time it’s over.”

The Wildcats finished off the regular season in style, winning twice at home last week.

On Wednesday, they blanked Innisfail 3-0 in the best-of-five match (25-20, 26-18 and 25-19).

A week ago Monday, Stettler needed a tiebreaker to edge Wetaskiwin 3-2, rallying from a 2-1 deficit. The scores were 23-25, 25-11, 17-25, 27-25 and 15-8.

Communication from the other volleyball teams at William E. Hay Composite High School has been scarce of late. The senior and JV girls are scheduled to visit Lacombe this Thursday.

BASKETBALL

Wildcat basketball tips off soon, with tryouts set for next Monday through Wednesday:

Monday — girls: 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. (elementary school gym); boys: 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. (high school gym).

Tuesday — girls: 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. (elementary school gym).

Wednesday — girls: 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. (elementary school gym); boys: 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. (high school gym).

REMEMBRANCE DAY

Last Thursday, William E. Hay, Stettler Middle School and Stettler Elementary School held their annual Remembrance Day ceremony in the high school gym. The service preceded a four-day school break.

HIGH SCHOOL BOOK CLUB

Ms. Stephenson and students have started a high school book club. The group is for anyone who enjoys reading and talking about literature.

The club’s first meeting was last week. All are invited to join. For more information, contact Ms. Stephenson, Cassidy Munholland or Keirsten Docherty.
