Red­skins con­tinue vol­ley­ball dom­i­nance

Sunday Express - - SPORT -

le­SOtHO Vol­ley­ball As­so­ci­a­tion (lVA) Pub­lic Re­la­tions Of­fi­cer Clif­ford Molefe has called on in­sti­tu­tion teams to im­prove their game if the sport is to reach greater heights.

Molefe said this af­ter Red­skins fe­male and male teams topped the A Divi­sion ta­ble at the end of the first quar­ter of the sea­son last week­end.

In the fe­male cat­e­gory, Red­skins were fol­lowed by Mahlaseli, Rovers and Green Spikes, while lDF were sec­ond, Green Spikes third and Mahlaseli fourth in the male league.

“The first quar­ter of the league was played last Satur­day and Red­skins are now top on both the male and fe­male ta­bles. This club has been dom­i­nat­ing our leagues for about three to four years now and it still looks like the dom­ina- tion will con­tinue,” Molefe said.

Ac­cord­ing to Molefe, all the teams have good play­ers but just lack com­mit­ment and pas­sion like the de­fend­ing cham­pi­ons.

“look at th­ese in­sti­tu­tion teams, the likes of lMPS, lDF and NUL. They have every­thing they need at their dis­posal (time, re­sources and in­fras­truc­ture) but their per­for­mance is so be­low par be­cause they are not util­is­ing them. Red­skins, on the other hand, just mean busi­ness hence they are do­ing so well,” said Molefe.

“Peo­ple might think that I am now do­ing PR for Red­skins but that is not the case. If all th­ese other teams could up their game, then com­pe­ti­tion will be there and the league will be more en­ter­tain­ing.

“this is one team made up of very com­mit­ted peo­ple in what they do and their per­for­mance just says it all.”

Molefe also said Red­skins’ male team is the only lo­cal side that man­aged to play at the 2011 African Club Cham­pi­onship held in Egypt.

“they are still the only lo­cal team that has won the Zone VI Club Cham­pi­onship when they clinched the com­pe­ti­tion in 2010. Af­ter this win, they qual­i­fied for the African Cham­pi­onship although they failed to do well there af­ter los­ing all their group­stage matches against teams from egypt, Rwanda and Su­dan,” he said.
