Wildcats face many uphill battles this high school volleyball season

Senior Cats are back on the court.

What the Mount Sentinel Wildcat lack in experience, the team makes up in hard work.

That’s what head coach Glen Campbell witnessed at the opening tournament of the season in Creston.

The Cats played hard but inexperience cost the team as Mount Sentinel lost in the semi finals of the Prince Charles Comets Invitational High School Boy’s Volleyball Tournament Saturday in the East Kootenay City.

Selkirk Storm of Kimberley defeated the Cats 2-0 in the bronze medal game.

“We are a young inexperienced team with only two returning starters from last year’s team,” Campbell said. “One of our returning players is Team B.C. player (Zach Grigg) who gives us that experience and leadership in a re-building year.”

Mount Sentinel finished with a 1-2 mark in the four-team tip-off tournament to the B.C. High School Boy’s Volleyball season. Each match went three sets.

Mt Baker Wild of Cranbrook defeated Mount Sentinel semi final action for the right to meet host Prince Charles in the final.

Next up for the Cats is the UBC/O High School Invitational Tournament in Kelowna Oct. 1-2.
