Wildcats fall to host Rimbey in senior quarter-final play

The senior girls’ volleyball team from William E. Hay Composite High School travelled to Rimbey last weekend to play in a tournament

The senior girls’ volleyball team from William E. Hay Composite High School travelled to Rimbey last weekend to play in a tournament with 11 other teams from the central Alberta area.

The Wildcats made it to the quarter-finals, where they were defeated by the host Rimbey Spartans in two games straight.

In pool play, Stettler posted victories over Bashaw and Grand Trunk, but fell to St. Augustine, St. Dominic’s and St. Mary’s, which left the Wildcats in fourth place in their pool.

“Overall, the girls showed continued signs of improvement in their team play, with some of the less-experienced players also improving their basic skills,” said Wildcats coach Warren Aspenes.

“With only three veteran Grade 12 players — Dani Van Dusen, Claire Aspenes and Michaela Ennis —we’re in a rebuilding year and still have a lot of room for development.”

This week, the Wildcats travel to Lindsay Thurber in Red Deer for another interlock series with the host school and West Central of Rocky Mountain House.

In league play last Tuesday, the senior girls’ Wildcats travelled to Wetaskiwin and ran into a steady Sabres’ team that defeated Stettler 3-2.

The Wildcats struggled with their serving in the first two games and found themselves down two games to none.

“After playing much better and winning games three and four, we ran out of gas in the fifth and deciding match, losing 15-12,” said coach Aspenes.
