Our run of success in State Volleyball Titles has continued, with our Junior Girls team becoming the latest team to claim a Gold Medal, competing at the 15 & U Division 2 Schools Volleyball Championships in Brisbane earlier this month.
It was another fantastic result by an Emmanuel team, with the girls undefeated in 7 matches, winning the final 25-14, 25-19 against Woodcrest College. As always, the girls played in an aggression and daring fashion that never leaves us wondering what might have been. There sportsmanship was also exemplary and a credit to each of them.
It is also another feather in the cap of coach Mr Sandford, who is consistently able to get the best out of our girls in the pressure games. His teams have now won 7 Gold Medals and 2 Silver medals in the past 9 Qld or National events in the past 5 years, with an ever changing group of players.
To add to the accolades, captain of the team Alana Neave won the MVP trophy for the division after a great tournament.
Congratulations to all players and a big thanks to Mr Sandford and to Miss Eade who acted as manager for the weekend.
