Otago Volleyball championships

Steven Sharp —

The Otago champs ran over the weekend, in which 2 OBHS teams (the blues and the whites) competed.

The white/development team improved throughout the weekend. Whilst a tough pool meant they narrowly missed out on the top 4, they finished strong beating Wakatipu High School and Bayfield High School to take out 5th place!

The Blues played well for the tournament, winning all their games leading up to the finals. In a tough fought battle, they lost to King's, who have been building this team for 5 years. The boys showed some fight, but ultimately weren't good enough on the day.

A massive congratulations to the players who made the tournament team: Jack Henderson, Osasa Nielsen-Caldwell, Isaiah Maole and Kalevini Hotesi.

Also, a big thank you to the coach of the blues, Simon Maole and those who helped out on the weekend as managers/coaches: Peter Eaton, Nick Sharp and David Richards.

Volleyball at OBHS continues to thrive!
