South Island Junior Volleyball Champs

Jade Cull —

In Week 7 the South Island Junior Volleyball Champs were held in Christchurch at Cowles and Pioneer Stadiums.

Linwood College entered two teams into this tournament - Junior Boys and Junior Girls.

Over the three days the teams played schools from around the South Island and also some teams from Australia - the boys played Upwey High school and the girls played Maribyrnong College, both schools are from Melbourne. 

There were early morning and late evening games which made for very long days. Our Linwood College students handled this challenge well. They played with heart and demonstrated the five college values throughout the tournament.
