Last week was one of ups and downs for all Stettler volleyball teams.

Both senior girl and senior boy Wildcats lost to Notre Dame Cougars last week in three straight sets, but both teams had some success in the weekend tournaments they took part.

Senior Wildcat boys split two games and won two games in round-robin in a tournament at Olds on October 30 and 31.

They beat Standard in the quarterfinals but lost to Black Diamonds in the semifinal game.

As for the senior girl Wildcats, they placed third in their pool of five teams after beating Carbon and Queen Elizabeth in straight sets and losing to Olds in a tight game. In the game with Olds, both sets ended 25-23.

In the playoff round, Wildcats were overpowered by Brooks in the quarterfinal game.

As for the junior girls, Wildcats played what their coach described as a “nail-biting game” versus West Central of Rocky Mountain House and won the game three sets to one.

“We won even though we were short-handed due to sick players who couldn’t play,” said coach Hayley Leschert.

Junior girls are now waiting to see how they will be placed for the zone playoffs in two weeks’ time.

Wm E. Hay Gr 9 girls volleyball team, on the other hand, remain undefeated in league play. They played a tournament in Lacombe two weeks ago.

“Although they did not advance out of their pool, it was the best volleyball the girls have played all season,” said coach Audra Lotoski.
