Gold at the Volleyball Senior Schools Cup
The Senior Schools Cup is an annual Queensland volleyball festival for year 11 and 12 students. In 2019 the event was held on the Gold Coast utilising the Commonwealth Games facilities.
On the back of their 2018 Division 2 win at Nationals, the King's Senior Boys team competed for the first time in Division 1 at the Senior Schools Cup. It was a weekend of tough competition with some nail biting sets. With each win the boys went in pursuit of a grand final qualification. Congratulations to the King's Senior Boys team on your gold medal success in your first Division 1 tournament. Well done to Cameron Grainger who was awarded Most Valuable Player of the tournament. The team will now step up their training as Queensland champions preparing for Nationals later in the year.
Queensland Divison 1 Champions: Ari Klein (c), Lachlan Hardy, Max Ise, Cooper Morris, James Hardman, Cameron Grainger, Kael Lennox and Patrick Heelan.
Without much training under their belt, King's first girls volleyball team to compete at the Senior Schools Cup improved out of sight every game they played. Our Year 12 Division 2 Girls team finished in the middle of their pool after a great weekend of volleyball. Our Intermediate Boys team played up an age division and gained a lot from the experience in preparation for Nationals later in the year.
I would like to thank all players for giving up their weekend to represent King’s. I would like to also congratulate and thank Head Coach, Glenn Robertson (Robbo), for everything he does for volleyball. Our volleyball program would not be where it is today without his high standard of coaching and the relationships he has developed with our players.
