2nd and 3rd at Volleyball Champs

We are thankful to God for the opportunity to compete in the Canterbury Secondary Schools’ Junior Div. 2 Volleyball Champs over the last weekend. Both the Boys and Girls teams did exceptionally well, with the boys coming 2nd – only losing one game of seven – the final to Haeata College. The girls also only lost one game (eight played over three days), to Rangiora High in the semi finals, and had a convincing win in their 3rd/4th playoff to secure the Bronze. They were the only team to defeat the eventual champions, Rolleston College.

Thanks to all the supporters for coming along and to Mr Rochford and Mr Norton and all the students for giving up their weekends to play and coach.
