Volleyball this year began with a rocky start for the Juniors. We barely had enough members to make one team. Then suddenly, people started joining and Sacred Heart had enough players for two teams, although only three students had played before. The Junior A team lost their first game, but used that loss to motivate them to work hard to improve and do better in their next games. Their hard work paid off , and they came away with 5th place overall in the Waikato and 1st place in the 2nd Division. Although the B Team mainly consisted of beginners to Volleyball, they strived to learn and improve on their skills, which was rewarded. The B team also managed to take home the gold medal after winning the 3rd division. Everyone worked incredibly hard this year, and played their utmost best. We were very fortunate to have Craig Poynter coach the Juniors this season, and Alex Mariano from The Waikato Volleyball Association provided additional training workshops. No one can deny that the work that was put into practices and training paid off , with Sacred Heart teams winning both of their divisions and the Junior A team coming fifth overall. Volleyball is an incredible sport and you make so many friends, both team mates and students at other schools who we have played or had training camps with. If you would like to get involved in Junior or Senior Volleyball next year, it begins Week 1 of Term 1. Mrs Bastion can answer your questions.
