Senior girl Wildcats played against Lacombe Ram at home last week, losing all three sets (11-25, 22-25 and 23-25).

“The ladies put up a good fight,” said coach Sarah Steinbach,

In the week before last, they also played in Sylvan Lake losing all three sets to H J Cody (17-25,13-25,22-25).

“Our player of the game against Sylvan Lake was Kristy Wade, and Katrena Heir got the player of the game against Lacombe,” she said..

In last weekend’s tournament in Bawlf, the senior girls ended up second in their pool after beating Edson, and Sedgewick but losing to Provost.

“During the semis, we met Bawlf and lost a hard fought battle – to end up third overall in the tournament,” Steinbach said.

As for the senior boy Wildcats, they won their game against West Central in Rocky Mountain House in four sets (20-25; 25-18; 25-13; 25-23).

“It was tough to get into the action after the two hour trip, but the boys soon found their stride building good leads that West Central could not overcome,” said coach Todd Dubber

Senior boys now play Hunting Hills at home at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 20.

Earlier, they played in the Olds College tournament on the weekend, Sat.Oct. 16, winning that tournament in the final game against Gus Wetter in two sets.
