As the volleyball action continued throughout the day, HPS took on the Forestburg Falcons in primetime, welcoming former teacher Mr. Soren Riise back to town. The Wildcats bounced back from dropping the opening set to force and win a three set match. On Saturday morning the Wildcats completed a Pool A sweep with a three set win over the Bashaw Rebels, giving them a bye to the semi-final.
