Wildcats court volleyball play

The Stettler senior and JV girls were slated to play volleyball in Wetaskiwin this Tuesday, one night after the senior and JV boys

The Stettler senior and JV girls were slated to play volleyball in Wetaskiwin this Tuesday, one night after the senior and JV boys were on their home court.

This past weekend, the Stettler JV girls’ volleyball team travelled to Calgary for a tournament at Rundle College. The girls won their second game, but it wasn’t enough to advance to the finals.

Last week, the JV girls faced Ponoka and lost 25-20 and 25-21, but won a third set.

Stettler came out on top of a three-set battle with Rocky Mountain House.

Last night, William E. Hay’s JV boys (a 3A school) hosted an exhibition game against a 4A team (Lindsay Thurber of Red Deer).

“We are jumping up a division to play, but we are excited to play against some tougher competition,” said Wildcats coach Brady Armstrong. “We will be playing in a 4A tournament in Red Deer (this) weekend.”

The JV boys played a regular league game this Monday night against HJ Cody (Sylvan Lake).

In league play, the JV boys hosted Rocky Mountain House last Monday — and won. The league competition hasn’t been overly challenging for the JV Wildcats, Armstrong said, but this week’s action should present them with a challenge.

“The guys pulled out a win (against Rocky) and even showed a little improvement over our last few games,” Armstrong said.

The senior girls’ Wildcats lost to Rocky Mountain House last Tuesday in Stettler. The senior boys played at home and lost to Lacombe.

Around the school

William E. Hay hosted a post-secondary fair on Oct. 17 that allowed students from every grade to interact with representatives from various post-secondary institutions. Students were able to talk with advisors from the post-secondary schools to learn about the different schools and their possible studies for after high school.

Last Thursday, William E. Hay held an athletic spirit day/jersey day to recognize all athletes on sports teams thus far in the school year. Students have the chance to sign up to participate in health-discovery day at the Stettler Hospital and Care Centre.
