Volleyball - Open Knockout (Issue 5 2017)

Open Knockout Volleyball
Sacred Heart sent a boy and girls volleyball team to the State Knockout Volleyball Competition, held at Marion Leisure Centre in Week 2 of Term 3. Both teams conducted themselves brilliantly with their competitiveness, behaviour and team spirit.
Both teams were largely composed of Senior Physical Education students who have been completing a volleyball unit of study in the curriculum. They banded together to form a team to challenge many of the regular 'volleyball' teams from other schools. Both teams were very competitive in the tournament and showed great improvement over the course of the day with the girls winning three out of six games, and the boys winning two out of four games. The tournament experience has also assisted greatly with their skills and understanding of volleyball.
A big thank you to our respective Year 12 volleyball captains, Emily Anderson and Josh Tonkin, who worked tirelessly to keep everyone motivated, focused and on the right courts at the right time!
