The WA Schools Cup was once again the state’s biggest school volleyball competition of 2019. The first of two competitions saw the Year 11 and 12 age groups compete across three venues with 69 teams playing, an increase of four from 2018.
The Open Honours Boys semi-finals was hard fought with both games decided by 2 points before Mandurah Baptist College went on to collect the victory over Aquinas in the final.
The Open Honours Female grand final went the distance being decided in the fifth set. Penrhos took an early lead winning the first two sets before Rossmoyne fought back taking the third and fourth. Penrhos was then able to close in the fifth set in a well contested match.
The Year 7-10 students got their turn from the 19th – 21st of September. With a record 137 teams entered, the total number of teams competing in WA’s School Cups exceeded 200 for the first time.
Schools and Junior Development Coordinator Gregory Hunt said he was “Delighted to see the large number of students competing with a combination of new and returning schools competing in great spirit.”
In the Year 10 Honours divisions Greenwood won the female division whilst Rossmoyne won the male.
At the conclusion of both events Penrhos College and Rossmoyne SHS tied for Champion Girl School while Rossmoyne won the Champion Boy School and the Presidents Cup for Top School.
The five days of competition acted as preparation for teams as they look towards the 2019 Australian Volleyball School Cup. This event will be held on the Gold Coast from the 7th – 14th of December. To find out more information contact Volleyball WA.
