It was a productive weekend for the Stettler Wildcats as they posted a 2-1 record at the West Central senior boys’ high school basketball tournament at Rocky Mountain House.

“The boys had a tough game losing to Olds on Friday night, but came up with two big wins on Saturday,” reported Wildcats coach Joe Thibeau.

Stettler defeated David Thompson High School by 20 points and pulled out a three-point victory over Edwin Parr Collegiate of Athabasca.

“The boys played well together and have shown a lot of growth, even through these three games,” Thibeau said.

In league play last Tuesday, the previously winless Wildcats showed promising signs, despite a 15-point loss.

“The boys had a stronger showing against Sylvan Lake,” said Thibeau, whose club had lost to the Lakers the previous week in the season-opening CACHS tournament at Lacombe.

“They kept pace with Sylvan through the first two quarters, then Sylvan began to pull ahead in the third quarter.”

On their home court last night, the Wildcats were scheduled to face the Wetaskiwin Sabres.

Next Tuesday night, the Wildcats host Notre Dame of Red Deer, before travelling to Innisfail two nights later, Dec. 20.

Stettler’s senior teams are off this weekend, but there’s plenty of action at William E. Hay Composite High School as the JV Wildcats host boys’ and girls’ tournaments.
