Cats rebound to grab silver medal at Penticton Volleyball Tournament
Time is running out on the Mount Sentinel Wildcats in this shortened BC High School Volleyball season.
The Wildcats rebounded from a poor showing at the 48-team Best of the West tournament in Kelowna to capture the bronze medal in Penticton Saturday.
Mount Sentinel scored a straight set victory (25-19, 25-10) over Kelowna’s Mount Boucherie in the Consolation Final.
“Our inconsistent play at Best of the West was a necessary wake up call,” said head coach Joe Moreira.
“For the most part we were focused and determined the entire weekend (in Penticton).”
The Wildcats finished second to Boucherie in pool play action, winning tough matches against Penticton and Westsyde of Kamloops.
Saturday, the Cats continued to play well, defeating West Van 2-0 before losing to host Princess Margaret. The Maggies happen to be one of the better ranked AA teams in the province.
Third-ranked single-A Mount Sentinel, which finished 21st in the 48-team pool at Best of the West, travel to Kimberley Friday to compete in the Selkirk Storm Girl’s High School Invitational Tournament.
