The Junior Volleyball Auckland Championships were held from Thursday to Saturday last week.
OHS had a boys’ and girls' team entered. The girls’ many of whom had not played in a championship tournament before finished in 12th place. They enjoyed the experience and learnt a lot about courage and the need to pick yourself up and move on quickly after a disappointing game. The girls’ gamesmanship improved with each game. They learnt a lot and enjoyed the experience. Their coach Mr Griffiths is proud of the progress they have made this year.
The boys’ team coached by Mr van Stipriaan were on their own for this tournament, as he had a very important occasion to attend (his wedding!) This team finished a very creditable 4th after losing to Rangitoto in the semi-finals. They left absolutely nothing on the court in a passionate game played in an excellent spirit. They had a great attitude, positively encouraging each other.
Congratulations Jack Filoa 10Cw and Ben Webb 10Cw who were chosen from all the players in the championship, in the ‘Dream Team of the Tournament’.
