Volleyball – Junior Schools Cup
Our Year 8 Girls Volleyball team competed at the ‘Junior Schools Cup’ State Volleyball Competition held on the Gold Coast over three days last weekend. The girls put in a tremendous effort representing GCC to finish at the top of pool A and runners-up in the Grand Final. The girls were faced with a tough match for their QTR Final against Canterbury College. The game went to three sets and the girls dug really deep to defeat them narrowly 17 – 15. This performance set the tone for the last day of competition with the girls showing some real fight. The girls were then faced with Gympie in the semi final who they disposed of in the first set with Adele Souter serving 10 points straight. Gympie fought back to take the second set but were no match for our girls who proved a class above their opponents to take the third set comfortably. The win sent us through to the Grand Final where we met the winners of Pool B, Meridan State College. With the stage set, GCC lost the first set with the occasion affecting the girls and some nerves affecting their performance. However, our girls fought back in the second set defeating Meridan by 12 points. The third set was a thriller with Meridan just getting over the line with a 13 – 15 win.
