School vol­ley­ball in spotlight

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

A big day of school vol­ley­ball awaits on Mon­day when teams from five schools de­scend on St Brigid’s Col­lege and Hor­sham Bas­ket­ball Sta­dium for the School Sport Vic­to­ria Se­nior and In­ter­me­di­ate Black Ranges vol­ley­ball com­pe­ti­tion.

The day will see boys and girls at­tempt to qual­ify for Greater Western Zone fi­nals, with those win­ners mov­ing on to state fi­nals next month.

In the se­nior boys divi­sion Mur­toa will start fa­vorite. The team will be ca­pa­bly led by Jay­den Mcqueen and Jordy Wei­de­mann.

This group of boys has per­formed con­sis­tently at this level for sev­eral years and was state cham­pi­ons in 2015.

The se­nior girls should see Hor­sham Col­lege progress through with a team con­sist­ing of strong play­ers Emily Han­nan, Brittany Baker and Tamikah Dock­rill.

The in­ter­me­di­ate boys divi­sion will see the St Brigid’s Col­lege boys start fa­vorites.

Ca­pa­bly led by Will Bren­nan, Ai­dan O’con­nor and John Kearns these boys qual­i­fied for state fi­nals last year in the year eight divi­sion, and have im­proved since then.

They will be pushed by Hor­sham Col­lege’s boys team, which has many play­ers who are ca­pa­ble of caus­ing an up­set.

The in­ter­me­di­ate girls divi­sion will be the clos­est fought com­pe­ti­tion.

Lutheran has been con­sis­tent at do­mes­tic level, while Hor­sham Col­lege has some de­vel­op­ing play­ers who will make it in­ter­est­ing.

Mur­toa could be the smokey de­pend­ing on how it struc­tures its team, while St Brigid’s has a group of girls who have been train­ing con­sis­tently.
