05 Dec Volleyball School of Excellence!
2019 was another Totally JAWSome year for our Volleyball School of Excellence. The success of this program is evident in the outcomes of our students.
This year two of the program’s 2018 graduates were awarded USA scholarships: Chelsea Fanning attended Missouri Valley College, Missouri and Charlotte Orgill attended Roberts Wesleyan College, Rochester New York.
The U17 girls team secured the Bronze Medal at the Senior Schools Cup coached by Ms Bimrose. The team also received The Most Outstanding Sporting Team Award for 2019 at the GSHS Awards night.
The Open Girls Honours Team coached by Mr Webb placed 4th at the Senior Schools Cup, qualifying them for the National competition. This totals 22 years of consecutive qualification for Open Girls Honours. Mr Webb also coached the U17 Mens QLD second team at the Australian Junior Volleyball Championships, securing the Silver Medal.
The Sharks program expanded in 2019 with the introduction of the first Junior Boys team coached by Mr Egerton. Each week the team grows and is ready to take on the challenge of competing in 2020.
Maddison Willis was awarded the SOE Junior Player of the Year and Georgia Snow was awarded SOE Senior Player of the Year. Georgia played in the U17 Women’s QLD team securing the Gold Medal at the Australian Junior Volleyball Championships in Canberra and was selected to attend the national program training camp after her success at the Championships.
Congratulations to the players, coaches and parents on the success of our teams this year. We look forward to what 2020 will bring!
