In recent weeks Volleyball players from GCC have taken part in the Trish Buckley Shield, this is an all schools competition including many Sunshine Coast Secondary Schools. Our girls’ team coached by Calista Theron put in some fantastic efforts to win the majority of games. A strong win over Caloundra State High School in the final week ensured a third place finish.
Our boys’ team came into this competition after having won the SCISSA flag last term. These boys were not beaten in SCISSA and they managed to keep this unbeaten record intact by posting wins over every team at Trish Buckley to finish in first place.
These boys not only exhibited excellent volleyball skills, they have also gelled together as a team, and it was impressive to see the way they encouraged each and persevered under pressure. We look forward to watching these teams continue to compete and find further successes in the future.
