Last weekend, the Stettler Wildcats senior girls’ basketball team began its schedule at the CACHS pre-season tournament in Lacombe. There were no prizes awarded — it was just for practice and to get some games in before the season begins.

We played CACHS on Friday and won 50-39. The Wildcats led the whole way.

Top scorers were Dacia Gramlick, with 16 points, and Claire Aspenes, with 11.

Game 2 was Saturday morning and we lost 50-33 to Lacombe. We just never really got going in that game. Lacombe will be a good team this season.

High scorers for Stettler were Aspenes and Jamie Ternes, each with six points.

Our last game was against Ponoka and both teams were dog-tired. Fitness this early in the season is always an issue. The Wildcats pulled out a 38-29 victory.

Stettler’s top scorers were Gramlick, with nine points, and Brooke Torgerson, with eight.

Torgerson got a concussion in that game and is expected to be out of action for a couple of weeks. It’s a big loss for us, as she is a force inside.

We will be a different team this season, with lots of speed and hopefully good rebounding. We have seven veterans and five newbies who bring a lot of speed with them.

It will be a fun year!
