Mt. Sentinel’s Wildcats head to provincials

South Slocan's Mt. Sentinel girls and boys volleyball teams have earned their way to the provincials.

The Mt. Sentinel Wildcats of South Slocan have won the Kootenay single “A” girls regional volleyball championships after the school hosted a tournament at Selkirk College in Castlegar last weekend.

“Mt. Sentinel was undefeated in the tournament,” said Mount Sentinel coach Joe Moreira. “We defeated Fernie in the final 25-13, 25-13, 25-17.”

That win has paved their way to the provincials in Kelowna, November 27 to 29.

In spite of their high ranking, Moreira said, “We were a little disappointed. We have been playing very well against many of the top teams in the province (in all four tiers). Although we achieved our goal of advancing to the provincials, our confidence was at times lacking.”

They are currently ranked third in the province (out of 16) after they lost 2-1 (15-12 in the 3rd) to Langley Christian, which is ranked second. They have yet to play Kelowna’s Immaculata who is ranked number one and is hosting this year’s tournament.

“We finished fifth last year with all of last year’s players who have returned for 2014,” said Moreira. “We have had a great season, now it’s time to prove it and find out just how good we are.”

The Wildcats boys volleyball team is also competing at the 2014 Boys ‘A’ Volleyball Provincial Championships in Abbotsford this week.

The South Slocan high school team travelled with their coach and school principal Glenn Campbell for the tournament that will see them on the court from November 20 to 22.  The team was scheduled to play against teams from Chemanius, Fernie and Kelowna today.

They are scheduled to play Bulkley Valley Christian School (Smithers) and Fraser Valley Credo Christian School on Friday. The finals will be on Saturday.

The Abbotsford Christian School is hosting the games with 12 teams competing from across the province.
