|Amano v Lechwe - Jackson attacking|
|Jackson, Samuel and Mthunzi blocking|
Our other game which was against Simba started out quite badly. Our communication was poor, half of our passes were hopeless, and some of us still didn’t seem to be able to smash so we lost that set quite quickly [9 - 15]. The next set was the complete opposite of the first one. We talked more, our passes were more accurate and we got in some good hits and so we won that set by a big gap, I’ve forgotten exactly how big [15 - 7]. The third set started out with us gaining a lead of 5 to 0. But then we gave the serve away and before long we were losing 7 to 5. Still, we managed to win the serve back and play some good volleyball
and win that set by a few points, which means we also won that match two sets to one. I’d like to commend a few of the players for good performance. Eun Taec was doing some excellent blocking. Yarel was doing some very good serving and recoveries, and Mthunzi, it seems, learned to spike quite well just over the course of the morning. I’d like to thank Mr Grove for umpiring the games, the team for playing well and doing their best, and everyone who was there to support us and cheer us on. I’d also like to thank Mr Grove for selecting me as a captain. It was a great privilege to represent the school in that way.
Report by Jackson Reed
"It was good to see this team do well. Two older players formed the U19 team which competed well at the U19 tournament but narrowly missed victories so it is good to see that age for age they were very competitive and won the day! A team well led by Jackson and great work from Samuel who consistently gave some great sets and support to his captain. Excellent work boys." - Mr Grove
