The finals for the local Toowoomba Volleyball Association Premier League were played on the evening of Tuesday, 4 June. TGS had three teams amongst the top four of the Men’s A Reserve grade competition, a Year 12 team, a Year 10 team and a Year 9 team.
The Year 12 team played in the Bronze medal match and unfortunately lost in three close sets to a much improved Downlands opposition. The Year 10’s and 9’s played against each other for the Gold medal. The Year 9 team showed some of the fire and heart that made their Schools Cup weekend so successful, however, in the end the Year 10 team prevailed and Ben Hood was named as MVP for the season.
A chilly morning greeted the group as we loaded bikes, tents and equipment ready for a weekend cycling the upper sections of the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail. Now the longest Rail Trail in Australia, the original line was commenced near Ipswich in 1884 and eventually completed to Yarraman in 1913.
This past weekend, 31 May – 2 June, Toowoomba was host to the Queensland Volleyball Intermediate Schools Cup. This competition showcases some of the best school aged (Year 9 and Year 10) teams in the state with many participants from the south-east corner but also those as far as Proserpine in the central coast. This year TGS fielded three teams; Year 10 Division 1, Year 10 Division 2 and Year 9 Division 1.
