The Stettler Wildcats senior girls’ volleyball team participated in a season-opening tournament last weekend in Camrose.

The girls from William E. Hay Composite High School were among 25 central Alberta teams in the tourney.

“We used this tournament as an evaluation of the current skill level of all our players so that we can plan for the season,” said Wildcats coach Warren Aspenes.

“The girls finished in the middle of the pack, losing out in the semifinals of the consolation draw. The girls did very well overall, considering we just have three returning Grade 12 players — Dani Van Dusen, Michaela Ennis and Claire Aspenes.

“The remaining eight players are all Grade 11 students that are showing a lot of potential to form a very strong team.

The Wildcats host interlock play with three other schools this Thursday. Games are set for 6 and 7:30 p.m. in the main William E. Hay gym.
