Vol­ley­ball his­tory

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport - BY DAVID BERRY

Vol­ley­ball his­tory was made at Western Zone fi­nals when for the first time all four Wim­mera teams pro­gressed through to School Sport Vic­to­ria state fi­nals.

In an over­whelm­ing en­dorse­ment of the strength of school vol­ley­ball in the Wim­mera, Hor­sham Col­lege se­nior girls, Mur­toa Col­lege se­nior boys and in­ter­me­di­ate girls and St Brigid’s Col­lege in­ter­me­di­ate boys recorded a clean sweep of matches against teams from War­rnam­bool and Bal­larat.

This is a great re­sult for vol­ley­ball in all three schools and jus­ti­fies the hard work of both the stu­dents and teach­ers who com­mit time to their stu­dents.

The re­sult also un­der­lines the im­por­tance of teams gain­ing valu­able match play in the lead up to these events.

Play­ers re­ceive this through their sup­port of Vol­ley­ball Hor­sham do­mes­tic com­pe­ti­tion.

The two in­ter­me­di­ate teams have made it a hat-trick of state fi­nals, and the Mur­toa girls, who made the semi-fi­nals last year, will be keen to go one step fur­ther this year.

For the St Brigid’s boys, a semi-fi­nal ap­pear­ance will be their goal as a min­i­mum this year, be­cause they are more ex­pe­ri­enced than pre­vi­ous years.

The in­ter­me­di­ate teams play in the state fi­nals on May 24 with the se­niors the fol­low­ing day, with matches to be played at the State Vol­ley­ball Cen­tre in Dan­de­nong.
