Wildcats win bronze medal at volleyball finals

Mt. Sentinel’s Wildcats girls volleyball team took the bronze medal at the 2014 Single “A” Girls Provincial Championships

Mt. Sentinel’s Wildcats girls volleyball team took the bronze medal at the 2014 Single “A” Girls Provincial Championships at Kelowna’s  Immaculata Catholic High School last weekend.

“For the most part we are very skilled team, but against the best teams we rely on our serving,” said Wildcats coach Joe Moreira. “We have been considered an exceptional serving team all season. When we played Immaculata (the eventual tournament champions) we served at our best. Immaculata is a very tall team and without good serving we could not compete with them at the net.”

The tournament began with three “very exciting” round robin matches on Thursday. The Wildcats lost two games to one to Langley Christian (15-13 in the 3rd) before winning two straight, 2-1 over Immaculata (15-13 in the third) and a 2-1 win against Southridge (also 15-13 in the third game).

On Friday Mt. Sentinel won matches against Ebenezer and Cedars advancing them into the semifinals.

In the semifinal, Wildcats lost to Langley Christian due to inconsistent serving.

“Our semifinal against Langley was not our best (inconsistent serving) and a disappointing reluctance to stay aggressive,” said Moreira. However, he gave Langley credit saying, “They deserved the win.”

The Wildcats finished third after beating Southridge from Surrey in their final match.
