Volleyball success

Congratulations to our Senior Boys Gold Volleyball team for winning the Senior East Blue Division on Monday. We played our final vs. Macleans College B and it was an epic encounter. Macleans defeated us in a close match during Round 3 so it was always going to be challenging.

We won the 1st set 25-19 even though we got off to a shocking start, being down 4-8 early on. Macleans won the 2nd set 25-17 thanks to an improved energy from their part and some simple serve errors by us.

The deciding set saw Macleans with a lead of 8-5 and then 14-11….. a timeout was called and the team refocused. Receive, pass, hit and let the outcome decide itself. The boys sounded confident and we won the next point, 12-14. We were fully engaged now and grabbed match point with a 15-14 lead. Service error! 15-15. Controversial call! 15-16 to Macleans and another timeout. Service error by Macleans! 16-16.

Step up, Year 10 Roniti Teiwaki. He smashed his 1st serve and Macleans struggled to control it, giving us an easy possession. Receive, pass, hit, POINT! 17-16 to us and match point once again. Roniti smashed his 2nd serve even harder and it dipped late to cause Macleans to make a mess and the ball went sailing out of court and the match was won.

A great victory and the boys are champions.
