Redskins continue volleyball dominance
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.
