The Volleyball WA Schools Cup is the largest Volleyball tournament held in Western Australia for high school students. Comprised of multiple divisions across years 7-12 the Volleyball WA Schools Cup showcases the best school aged players and is the WA qualifying event for the Volleyball Australia Schools Cup.
Over the weekends of the 21-11 August and 10-12 September, we had 9 teams represent Merredin College at the Schools Volleyball Cup events in Perth. We could not be prouder of our students, all of our teams played exceptionally well all competing in the semi-finals for their divisions. This is a huge achievement and they all represented our school with the utmost sportsmanship.
