Stu­dents unite for vol­ley­ball com­pe­ti­tion

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

MUN­DUB­BERA State School stu­dents, along with other mem­bers of the com­mu­nity, gath­ered at the school on Satur­day for the se­cond Big Dig in the Dubb vol­ley­ball com­pe­ti­tion.

Year 10 stu­dent Ai­dan Tay­lor was awarded the most val­ued male player of the com­pe­ti­tion.

“That was pretty un­ex­pected,” Tay­lor said.

“I felt I didn’t do too well on the day, but ap­par­ently I did.

“Vol­ley­ball is one of the best sports that in­volves group com­mu­ni­ca­tion, ac­tiv­i­ties and get­ting along.”

Tay­lor said it was a day of non-stop ac­tion.

“You had peo­ple from all dif­fer­ent cul­tures and dif­fer­ent ways of play­ing vol­ley­ball,” he said.

“You had some of the teams being very com­pet­i­tive and oth­ers that were just in it for the fun.”

He said his favourite as­pect of the day was the on-court ban­ter.

“When you were play­ing against peo­ple you know re­ally well, they’d sort of bag you the en­tire time,” he said.

“The ban­ter be­tween the teams was prob­a­bly the best thing.

“The ban­ter across the nets, the ball would go and the words would fol­low.”

Tay­lor said the event was a fundraiser for the school vol­ley­ball team’s trip to a com­pe­ti­tion in Mel­bourne.

“There is a whole heap of peo­ple go­ing on the trip,” he said.

“It’s re­ally kind of cool to be a part of it.”

Event or­gan­iser and PE teacher Adrian Brady said 13 teams en­tered the com­pe­ti­tion.

“I think we might step it up to once a year,” Mr Brady said.

The school will host a trivia night for the trip at the Mun­dub­bera Golf Club on Sun­day.
