On behalf of our athletes and coaches we hope that everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving weekend. Our teams will be gearing up the next few weeks for their playoff runs.
After posting four straight victories the Cowboys were brought down to earth as they took on the powerhouse Cochrane Cobras. The Cobras are always the team to beat in Rocky View and a perennial Provincial Championship contender. The Cowboys were no match losing 53-0. Next up for the Cowboys is a trip to Airdrie to take on the Bert Church Chargers. This is the team’s last league game and a Cowboy win will result in home field advantage for the first round of playoffs.
For the second straight year heartbreak has hit senior Cowboy, Myles Montpetit. Last year he broke his collarbone in the second league game. On Thursday, during the second offensive play, Myles was tackled hard and re-broke the collarbone. This is devastating to Myles and the team, as his season is over. Myles showed his class, though, indicating that he would be there for his teammates and would be attending each practice and game and supporting the Cowboys. Myles you are a class act and we will miss you on the field.
VARSITY GIRLS’ VOLLEYBALL
The Varsity Girls lost, last Wednesday, to the first place Bow Valley Bobcats in league action. On the weekend the team travelled to Kelowna for a 40 team tournament. Results next week.
VARSITY BOYS’ VOLLEYBALL
The Sr. Boys volleyball team had a tough week in divisional play. They hosted Bow Valley on Wednesday and unfortunately the Lakers were defeated in 3 straight sets. The team now has the weekend off for the Thanksgiving holiday, but will return next week, ready to practice hard in preparation for their game against the Springbank Phoenix on Wednesday, October 10th at home.
JV BOYS VOLLEYBALL
The JV Boys continue to improve and beat Bow Valley 3-0 in league play last week, including one game that went to 33-31. This week the team will host the Springbank Phoenix at 7:00.
JV GIRLS VOLLEYBALL
The JV Girls Volleyball team had a tough week against a strong offensively built Bow Valley girls team. The first two matches were a little more one sided, but in the last set the Chestermere girls started to dig a little deeper and show what they were capable of to Cochrane o losing the match 21-25. Hopefully when we see them at divisionals the story will have a different outcome. The JV squad has a tournament at the end of the month at the Calgary Academy for the annual Dig Pink tournament. This should be a great weekend of exposure to some good volleyball. The girls are improving each and every week, and having played most of our Rockyview competition already it looks like divisionals are going to be very tight and competitive games for everyone.
