Volleyball National Champions

18 April 2012

Last week the U15 Volleyball Team (Year 8s) travelled to Albury to compete in the U15 Australian Championships.

This competition is different to the one we compete in during December at MSAC as that is the national 'schools' cup. The Albury tournament is a true National Championships comprising of State representative teams and elite academies.

The Mazenod boys during pool play and crossovers defeated some very tough competition including the NSW and ACT state representative teams setting up a Queensland-Mazenod final in front of more than 300 spectators!

In the Gold Medal Match, the Mazenod U15 team, after a long two and half hour, 5-set epic prevailed against the Queensland State Team.

The scores were:

Mazenod        19   25  20  25 15
Queensland   25 18   25 16   4

It is quite simply unheard of for a school team to defeat a State team and an achievement of which we can all be extremely proud.
