It has been another very enjoyable day here in Melbourne, today’s activities have been a mixed bag – including shopping, training and 3 teams playing their first round games.
Most teams were able to watch some or all of the AVL finals. This was exciting as we were able to support the Women’s WA Pearls Team in the Grand Final and Trent Mounter playing in the Men’s Bronze Medal match. Unfortunately the Pearls lost in 4 sets, however our students were inspired and eager to get on the court tomorrow!
Last chance training sessions gave everyone an opportunity to iron out any kinks before games get underway.
The first round games started at 6pm at Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Center (MSAC). The teams that played were U/16 Girls Honours (Dixie’s Team), U/17 Girls Honours (Morgane’s Team) and U/15 Boys Honours (Craig’s Team). Unfortunately the 3 teams lost their games however, their coaches reported their teams put up a great fight with most sets being very close. We are putting this down to first game jitters but the students are in good spirits ready to try again tomorrow!
Teams are now in bed and ready for the start of a massively busy week…we can’t wait to get into it!!
A quick thank you to Chelsea who will be (and has been) taking photos for the gallery. Unfortunately there are not many photos today as the camera battery has just died but I will try and get them up tomorrow. Sorting the photos into days on the Gallery Page is proving to be a little out of my IT capabilities so they are a little all over the place!
Also, don’t forget to check out the Results Page over the week to see how your team is travelling and ‘Mr Read’s Lessons Learnt’ will be updated as of tomorrow.
Wish us luck!!!!
