The Mount Sentinel Wildcats capped the BC Senior Girls ‘A’ Volleyball Championship with a win Saturday but had to settle for a seventh-place finish.

The eighth-seeded Wildcats ended play with a  22-25, 25-19, 11-15 victory over Duncan Christian at Selkirk College’s Castlegar campus following a 22-25, 25-19, 15-9 loss earlier in the day against Kelowna Christian.

“I think we kind of limped to the end, but having said all that for the most part that I think it was a good tournament for us,” said Wildcats coach Joe Moreira.

The Wildcats, which had just two Grade 12 athletes on the roster, had hoped they could make a run after a 25-10, 25-16, 25-12 win against Barriere on Friday.

But a four-set loss (25-22, 20-25, 25-23, 25-23) to White Rock Christian later Friday eliminated Mount Sentinel from medal contention.

Moreira said the loss deflated his team ahead of Saturday’s games.

“It was a really hard match. As a coach I’ve been there many, many times before, but as players they were really quite disappointed. Emotionally they were drained,” said Moreira.

Immaculata finished first at the tournament, followed by Richmond Christian and White Rock.
