Volleyball QLD: Junior & Year 11 Schools Cup Results 🏐

Five of our Canterbury volleyball teams competed at the combined Volleyball Queensland Junior and Year 11 Schools Cup which took place from Friday 22 – Sunday 24 October just gone.

Year 7 Boys

Our Year 7 Boys unfortunately lost their repechage to qualify for the top eight in a thrilling 16-14 final set.

They proceeded to finish 11th out of 24 teams in the Division 1 competition.

A great effort for their first QLD competition.

Year 8 Boys

This team competed in the Honours competition, playing against the ‘best of the best’ in their age group.

The boys experienced a shaky start, but found their footing late on the second day of competition, winning against Cleveland.

They continued their winning streak from then on, finishing in 7th place out of 11 teams.

Year 7/8 Combined Girls

Our Combined Girls team who also played in Division 1, found themselves playing against some quality opponents.

Despite being struck down by injuries, they persevered and won against some of the more challenging teams to finish in 8th place.

Year 11 Girls

Consisting of two Year 9s, two Year 10s and five Year 11s, our Year 11 Girls team finished in 5th place.

With only a few training sessions together as a team, their progression throughout the competition was second to none.

Playing some fantastic defence in their final match, after a quick ‘how to dive on wooden floors’ lesson, the girls should be very happy with their results.

Year 11 Boys

Our Year 11 Boys competed against a tough Division 1 pool, finishing narrowly in 3rd seed.

Both the 1st and 2nd seed teams went on to play in the Grand Final match, which unfortunately meant that our boys could only finish in 5th place at best.

The boys played fast-paced, controlled volleyball throughout the competition, never giving up without a fight.

They finished in 5th place, losing narrowly in two matches to Woodridge and Iona.

Overall it was a great performance by all teams, finishing mid table.

An excellent gauge to prove that our Canterbury Volleyball teams are competitive at the highest level of school volleyball across all age groups.

Congratulations to all our Taipans¬†Volleyballers¬†on a great long sporting weekend!¬†🐍
