Volleyball TVA success

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.

This year TGS fielded three teams; Year 10 Division 1, Year 10 Division 2 and Year 9 Division 1.
