King's on Podium at First Beach Schools Volleyball Cup
On the back of King's win at the National Volleyball Cup at the end of last year, a team of beach volleyball players entered the Beach Schools Cup - an annual two day school-based beach volleyball competition. As the only volleyball competition of its kind, Beach Schools Cup attracts participation from South East Queensland to North Queensland. This year, saw record numbers with 218 teams entered at the Coolangatta venue giving players the chance to experience the Commonwealth Games set-up.
King’s entered four teams split across two divisions, Senior 2’s and Intermediate 4’s. All teams started strong on day one finishing second in their pool and winning 10/15 games. With windy conditions on day two, Coach Robbo was able to use his knowledge of the game and give teams tactics to implement. All teams did a great job and gained a lot of experience from playing on sand for the first time. I was proud of all players and excited to get the 2019 season underway.
Ari Klein and Lachlan Hardy (Senior pairs) – SILVER
Jai Mathur, Jeewon Lee, Geon Song, Sebastian Field, and Eugeny Lee (Intermediate 4’s) - BRONZE

Good luck to all players at the upcoming Regional trials. GO KING’S!
