Wildcat senior girls’ volleyball team make an encouraging start to season

Wm. E Hay’s senior girl Wildcats got into volleyball action last weekend at the annual season opener Red Deer College tournament, placing second on the consolation side after a set of mixed results.

At the end of the round robin, Wildcat girls placed fifth and were paired up with Three Hills in their quarter final.

In the three-set game, Wildcats lost the first one 19-25, came back to recover the second and to take the winning third (27-25 and 15-10), advancing to semi finals to play against Innisfail, who proved to be no match to the local girls .

Wildcats took both sets comfortably 25-20 and 25-13.

In the final, though, Lacombe Composite High School girls turned out to be a tougher nut to crack.

The first set went to Lacombe 25-15 with the second set going to Wildcats 25-20.

In the third and final set, described by Wildcats coach Sarah Steinbach as “heartbreaking”, Lacombe side reasserted their power to take the set 15-12.

“Overall the weekend was a great kick start to our season,” said Steinbach.

“We are excited to see what the rest of the season brings,” she said.
