Mount Sentinel Wildcats dropped a consolation match to Kootenay rival Fernie Falcons to finish 10th overall at the BC High School A Girl’s Volleyball Championships held recently in Nanaimo.

The Falcons edged the Wildcats 2-1 in the best-of-three match to send the young Mount Sentinel squad to tenth overall in the 20-team tournament.

Mount Sentinel opened the tournament with a 2-2 record during round robin action to finish third in the pool.

“ Although we didn’t play really well, our play was very similar to how we played during the season. . . . No surprises,” said Mount Sentinel coach Joe Moreira.

The Cats advanced to meet Aberdeen Hall in the round of 16, losing 3-1 despite playing very solid during the match.

“(We played) aggressive, played like we belonged on the floor against a very good AH (Aberdeen Hall) team,” Moreira said.

The loss dropped Mount Sentinel into the lower half of the draw.

Mount Sentinel defeated Duncan Christian in a very close match and Stratford Hall before losing to Fernie.

Overall the season was a success for Mount Sentinel, consisting of a very young team with no seniors on the roster.
