Breather for vol­ley­ballers

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

Aschool hol­i­day break will give Vol­ley­ball Hor­sham teams across all grades the op­por­tu­nity to re­assess their goals and come out hard in term two.

In A Grade, Tim Pop­ple’s Sha­dos Inala heads the ta­ble ahead of Lou­cas Vet­tos’s New York Nuggets, with all teams hav­ing played each other once.

Nathan Berry’s Phan­toms are in third place, per­cent­age be­hind the Nuggets with the young Rap­tors still to taste suc­cess af­ter four rounds.

In B Grade, all teams have recorded at least one win, but it is the peren­nial fi­nal­ists the Phan­tom Masters sit­ting on top of the lad­der, ahead of the Von Steiger Shad­ows.

Both teams have blooded plenty of new play­ers so far this sea­son, but the ever con­sis­tent Vaughn Maroske and An­drew Adam­son con­tinue to show the way.

Water­ham­mers sit third, while the Phan­tom Rangers are fourth.

In C Grade, last sea­son’s pre­mier Mur­toa Rail­way sits un­de­feated on top of the lad­der clear of Pic­colo Nuggets, who are be­gin­ning to form into a con­sis­tent team on the back of good work from all rounder Blake Turner and Oliver Garth-lind­say. un­set­tled

The Mur­toa Lizards, fresh from a big win over sta­ble­mates Mur­toa Mav­er­icks, have jumped to third with a healthy per­cent­age, ahead of HC Thun­der, with the Von Steiger Shad­ows mak­ing up the top five.

In ju­niors the Iggy Kearns-led Dream Team has taken all be­fore it so far this sea­son and sits on top of the lad­der un­de­feated, clear of the Mur­toa Dragons, HC Rebels and Saints White, all on eight points sep­a­rated only by per­cent­age.

HC Light­ning make up the top five and each team has scored at least one win. All teams have been in games each and ev­ery week, un­der­ly­ing the even­ness of the com­pe­ti­tion.

While some teams have still to set­tle their line-ups, there is op­por­tu­nity across all grades for in­di­vid­u­als who might be in­ter­ested in play­ing to get on board. Peo­ple can send an ex­pres­sion of in­ter­est to [email protected] vol­ley­ball­hor­ and ev­ery ef­fort will be made to fit you into a team.

Com­pe­ti­tion will now break for school hol­i­days and will re­turn the week of April 16. Vol­ley­ball Hor­sham mem­bers in­volved with Phan­toms won’t be rest­ing as they pre­pare for their first games of the 2018 State League sea­son on April 7 in Mel­bourne.
