School Sport Victoria (SSV) State Volleyball

By Louise Bates

Congratulations to our Senior girls and boy and our Intermediate girls who made it through to the School Sport Victoria (SSV) State Volleyball Finals.

Our Inter girls competed extremely well, considering their team was decimated by injury and their Libero (backcourt specialist) had to play as a Middle Blocker. Despite this, they beat McKinnon in a close match to get into the Final. The final went down to the wire but unfortunately the girls fell short, coming second in the State behind Eltham Secondary College, who have a very experienced team.

The Senior Boys missed the final by the closest of margins after facing Carrum Downs, a team that play together in the State League competition. The boys have been galvanised by this experience and have hit the training court even harder, wanting to do their best to win the Victorian Schools Cup competition held in July, to prove that they, in fact, are the best team in the State.

The Senior Girls also finished the day in second place, losing a exciting close match to Maribyrnong College Sports Academy. Throughout this year, the girls have proved that they can mix it with the best schools in the state, and their team continues to grow and show improvement each time they take the court.

Well done to all our State Finalists!

Inter Girls - State Second
Senior Girls - State second
