VOL­LEY­BALL: Im­pres­sive re­sults in Toowoomba show that vol­ley­ball’s fu­ture looks bright in the North Bur­nett.

Re­cently plac­ing sixth in Toowoomba for vol­ley­ball, Mun­dub­bera State School stu­dents com­peted to the best of their abil­ity with praises from the wider pub­lic.

The stu­dents com­peted in un­der-16 divi­sion two.

Mun­dub­bera State School vol­ley­ball coach, Adrian Brady, said he was pleased with how his team per­formed and rep­re­sented their school.

“Loretto Col­lege were dom­i­nat­ing our pool sig­nif­i­cantly beat­ing each team they went against,” Brady said.

“We were not do­ing so well and came up against them in our fourth game.

“Af­ter los­ing the first set 23–25 the girls came out very ag­gres­sive not only win­ning the next set 25–13, but also the fi­nal set 15–13.”

“Beat­ing the num­ber one team in our pool is a great ac­com­plish­ment as Loretto later went on to win sec­ond in the tour­na­ment.”

Of­fi­cials com­mented on the sports­man­ship shown by the Mun­dub­bera team.

“Coaches from op­pos­ing teams, Vol­ley­ball QLD of­fi­cials and spec­ta­tors alike com­mented on how up­beat and de­ter­mined the Mun­dub­bera team was,” Brady said.

“The over­all goal is to pre­pare them for tri­als next year, how­ever af­ter the great suc­cess at state on the week­end the girls are at­tempt­ing to con­vince me to nom­i­nate them in the Aus­tralian Vol­ley­ball All Schools Cup in Mel­bourne. We will see.”
