Competition remains tight
Volleyball Horsham Monday night competition for C Grade and juniors has produced tight results in the first four weeks.
In C Grade, Horsham College Thunder girls have hit the ground running, winning their first three games.
The girls are well led by Pascall Patterson and Alisha Matheson and have based their game around solid defence and consistent passing, which has enabled them to move to the top of the ladder.
Hot on their heels are the Slutheran team. The combined St Brigid’s and Lutheran team has a good blend of experience with Matt Mcloughlin and Kingsley Dalgleish complementing the work of Elsbeth Zeegers and Tamikah Burdett.
The young Von Steiger Boomers are coming together nicely with Ruben Ferguson and Mitch Warrick leading the way.
Perennial favorites Murtoa Railway are making it hard for the younger teams with Warren Young showing his experience coupled with Bill Lindsay.
Rounding out the top six are St Brigid’s College Raptors, who have
won their past two games with Caitlin Hobbs and Jess Whitworth playing well, while the smoky in this grade – Von Steiger Gangsters – are starting to hit their straps with Rhyce Allan and Mikey Collins-clarke showing form.
In the juniors, Murtoa Gods have jumped to the top of the ladder with consistent play from Ella Van Duren and Millie Fagan.
They lead two Lutheran teams, Raiders Gold and Raiders Black, which are getting better each week.
The Gold team has Lily Snowden and Olivia Heard playing well, while the Black team is building nicely under Harry Robertson and Kaden Lanyon.
The Phantoms and Murtoa Geckos round out the top six.
The Phantoms are well served by the four Young brothers and their cousins Noah and Ellie Treloar, while the Geckos have Archie Gawith and Rhys Hemley playing good volleyball.
There is still opportunity for boys and girls interested in playing to get on board in the Monday night junior competition. There are some teams looking for players.
