Fa­mil­iar faces at lad­der top

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport - BY DAVID BERRY

Vol­ley­ball Hor­sham C and ju­nior grades are four weeks into their sea­sons and some fa­mil­iar teams are set­ting the early pace.

In C Grade Team Al­pha Wolf Squadron has picked up where it left off from last sea­son and is sit­ting on top of the lad­der, per­cent­age ahead of new-look Fairhills team.

Emily Han­nan and Chloe Wil­son are lead­ing the way for the top team, but the re­turn­ing Delaney Wills and Mercedes Arnott are mould­ing their team to­gether nicely.

A Mur­toa Rail­way team and HC P-mans aren’t too far away in third and fourth spots re­spec­tively, in a com­pe­ti­tion that has al­ready lifted in stan­dard this sea­son.

In the ju­niors, Saints and Mur­toa Lizards are sit­ting in the top two spots af­ter four rounds.

The Saints have picked up handy play­ers in Ro­han San­ders and Jedd Her­mans and they are com­ing to­gether nicely un­der the set­ting of Noah Brennan.

The Mur­toa Lizards – all play­ing to­gether for the first time, have hit the ground run­ning and are well served by im­pres­sive young­sters Fraser Adler and Tuskan Mcalpine.

Hot on their heels are the Pringles in third spot, while the HC Hawks aren’t too far be­hind in fourth spot.

Both teams have im­pres­sive young­sters in their teams with Brodie Pitt and Caleb Smith lead­ing from the front for the Pringles and Tom and Josh Mil­bourne for the Hawks.

Acad­emy

Af­ter two tri­als a Vol­ley­ball Hor­sham Acad­emy Pro­gram will kick off next Tues­day night.

The pro­gram aims to give vol­ley­ballers from all schools in the re­gion the op­por­tu­nity to im­prove their skills un­der qual­ity coach­ing from some of the as­so­ci­a­tion’s best play­ers.

Tim Pop­ple heads a boys pro­gram, while Kara John­son and Chloe Brown will work with girls and both will have some qual­ity play­ers to work with through­out the sea­son.

There is good rep­re­sen­ta­tion from all schools, which all goes well for the fu­ture of the sport.

Any­one in­ter­ested in play­ing A or B grade vol­ley­ball in Hor­sham on Wed­nes­day evenings or C grade or ju­niors on Mon­day evenings can visit St Brigid’s Col­lege sta­dium on ei­ther night to in­quire.
