Friday Night Volleyball Results

Well done to all our Volleyball teams who have been competing in Timaru on Friday nights from Term 4, 2016 until the end of term 1.

Our Senior A Girls team made the final in the Women's Premier Grade. They fought hard in the final but ended up losing in 3 sets.

Our Senior B girls team were playing off for 3rd and 4th placings in the Senior B Grade.  Unfortunately they lost in 2 sets.

Our Junior A team had a big task ahead of them playing rivals TGHS who, in the 2 years of playing, they had not beaten but were also so close. They played an outstanding game which went into the 3rd set. TGHS won the first, we won the second and the 3rd went down to the wire with our Girls taking it out by 2 points. Well done Girls!

Our Junior B team had a great season winning the Junior Girls Division 2nd Grade and then getting promoted into the A Grade for next year.

Our Junior C team were playing off for 3rd and 4th placings in the Junior Girls Division 2nd Grade. They had a great first set winning easily but they fell of the boil and lost the second, They had a close 3rd set but unfortunately couldn’t find enough to take it.

Our Junior D team joined the competition in term 1 and really enjoyed playing and are looking forward to getting a full season in at the end of the year.  Results:
