The Junior A and B volleyball teams had a great regional tournament at the ASB Arena on Friday and Saturday. The A team finished a brilliant 3rd after some amazing games played by the girls. Maia Wilson was named in the 6-person tournament team which is a great achievement.
The Junior B team was chosen as the recipient of the Rosalina Taituave Spirit Award, an award given to only one team across the whole tournament that demonstrated the values and attitude that Rosalina had when playing and coaching for East. Well done to the team. And many thanks to Anella Munro (Senior A coach) and Urs Daellenbach (Senior B coach) who took the time off work to coach the two junior teams, and Holly Hueston who managed the teams. And thanks also to senior students Sophia Daellenbach and Emma and Meg Brown who coached the Junior B team through the year, taking on several brand new year 9's this term. They do a great job not only coaching in Year 11, but helping at the regional tournament, and Junior boot camps.
