Secondary Volleyball Program

Secondary Volleyball Program

This year the Merredin College volleyball program competed in the annual John Paul College volleyball tournament held in Kalgoorlie on Thursday 26 July. Our Year 9 girls, Year 10 girls and Year 9/10 boys’ teams were selected to represent our school at the tournament for a day of competitive volleyball in the lead up to the Schools Cup competition which we will be attending in Perth on the 15-16 September. Our teams looked fantastic in their new volleyball specialist uniforms on display.

In the round-robin our Year 9’s kept positive against some tall opponents, the Year 9/10 boys finished undefeated and the Year 10 girls finished in second place. In the finals our Year 9/10 boys knocked out the Year 10 girls side in the semi. In the end the boys went down in the final by 2 points by a tall and high-jumping John Paul College side.

Well done to all of our students for their efforts in what was a memorable day. Our sights are now set on the Schools Cup competition held in Perth in Week 9 (Year 7-10).
